A Tillywig Toy & Media Award to WaterGame
Our WaterGame was given a Tillywig Toy & Media Award (the game card and the jury motivation can be consulted on the link). As often happens, what struck us about this game is that, although all the participants are adversaries, they have a common goal (safeguarding water), so that they don’t all fail!
«WaterGame cleverly pits players for and against one another by giving them a common cause that, if neglected, becomes everyone’s loss.” – so starts the Tillywig article about WaterGame which it awarded the Tillywig Best Family Fun 2020 prize – “The gloriously illustrated board is a masterpiece of playfulness. Its eye-catching visuals serve a variety of purposes such as keeping track of the communal water supply, a source to which players can turn when running low but that relies on voluntary donations to fend off depletion. […] For if any player arrives at the end with a stock of less than 10 gallons of water, all players lose the game. And while that shared conservation-of-water objective is central to the gameplay, WaterGame serves it up with such an enjoyably entertaining touch that the foremost thing on players’ minds following each game was how much fun they’d just had!»
