The Golden Geek Awards - held by respected board game website - honours the top new offerings in the world of games.

Seven lines which are supplied by Esdevium in the UK have picked up Awards.

King of Tokyo won three, including Best Family Game, while Eclipse won two, including Game of the Year.

“We are delighted to see so many of our games winning these awards,” said Steve Buckmaster, sales director at Esdevium Games. “We are very lucky at Esdevium to work with some very good board games that are innovative, refined and have a real cutting edge.
