Coiledspring Games has been nominated in four categories for the awards, which will be announced on May 5th at the expo - abstract game, card game, party game and family.

Roger Martin, MD, Coiledspring Games, commented: "We are delighted to be nominated. We aim to offer UK retailers the best games from around the world. Our four nominations reflect these efforts and the quality of our games.

"Our last year’s winner Forbidden Island sold through in every shop that stocked it. Consumers bought it with confidence knowing they were getting a game that had won an award for its excellence."

Other notable nominees include relative newcomer to the industry, Pants on Fire Games, which have two products nominated across two different categories.

Cubicle 7 stormed the role-playing game category with seven out of the eight nominations.

The winners are determined by a combined system of a public vote at the show and the opinion of a panel of judges.
