The three winners of the Zenobia awards have just been announced by Volko Ruhnke and Harold Buchanan. And I've got to say, three choices that I will buy blindfolded once they get published, based on subject and the new approaches in gameplay.

Here's the announcement video, detailing the strengths of each game:

On the games themselves, I am particularly intrigued and excited for the conceptual breakthrough of a non-market based economic game. Incredible idea. Basically, how about a euro without the fundamental assumption of market transactions to develop.

Oh awesome. Winter Rabbit and the Machu Pichu game were the most intriguing- and different sounding, in terms of argument/perspective - of the bunch, glad to see the jury learning that way.

Love this, but they really needed a host with some broadcasting experience.

The first of the finalist (ie not one of the 3 winners though) is going to kickstarter.

Dutch Resistance: Orange Shall Overcome!
A co-operative scenario based pick-up-and-deliver game for 1-5 players about resistance during the Second World War in the Netherlands.

Perhaps the most conventional of the themes among the final games (although resonating with me as a Dutchman), so I think the Zenobia jury was more taken with the mechanics
