Best Children’s Game

Best Children’s Game is awarded to the best new game that is designed to be enjoyed by children under the age of 8 (and their families).

In selecting a winner, the judges will look for a game that:

  1. has rules that are clear and simple
  2. allows players to feel they have done clever or exciting things during the game
  3. can be replayed many times with enjoyment
  4. encourages interaction, especially co-operation, with the other players
  5. is designed so that players of all ages can enjoy spending time together
  6. has sturdy and attractive components
  7. represents good value for money
  8. is different from other games
  9. has a manageable playing time that is appropriate to the age of the players
  10. scales well with different numbers of players (ideally for 2 to 6 players)

Games are eligible for consideration if they have become available from retailers in at least two Australian capital cities (or by mail order / online from an Australian retailer) in the calendar year before the award. The game must be a stand-alone game that does not require purchase of another (base) game to play.
