UK Games Expo People Awards 2021 now open to public voting – ToyNews


People’s vote is now open for this year’s UK Games Expo Awards with a shortlist covering 52 finalists in 18 board game categories.

With the nomination process now closed, voting has begun and the judges at UK Games Expo 2021 have drawn up a shortlist of the best games – and accessories and novelty items – submitted.

This year’s UK Games Expo People’s Awards categories cover Best Abstract Game, Best Kids’ Game, and Best Family Game, as well as Best New Board Game (American Style) and Best New Board Game (American Style) European).

Categories for Best New Card Game, Best Party Game, and Best RPG have also been included, with a slew of favorites and well-known titles appearing across all categories, including the Kinderspiel des Jahres winner. 2021 Dragomino, Zombie Teenz Evolution, and the popular card game Abandom All Artichokes.

The winners will be revealed at this year’s UK Games Expo, which returns to the Birmingham NEC from July 30 to August 1 after its one-year hiatus when the pandemic forced the show to go virtual in 2020.

This year’s show promises to deliver its usual lineup, minus its Bring and Buy to avoid the queues and crowded crowds. Return events at this year’s show will include its family zone and family-specific exhibitors and events, and over 200 exhibitors ready to demonstrate and sell their games and gaming products.

The event recently updated its health and safety rules for the show, which include mandatory masks and proof of covid vaccination or negative covid tests from all exhibitors and visitors.
