North Star Games has exciting news! They’re upcoming strategic push-your-luck game, The Quacks of Quedlinburg (known as Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg in Germany), has won the coveted 2018 Kennerspiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) award! This achievement has been awarded each year to the top strategy game release since 1978.
In Wolfgang Warsch’s Quacks of Quedlinburg you play devious charlatans trying to sell your questionable potions. To brew up your peculiar potables, you blind-draw ingredients from your bag until you have everything you want, but if you draw too many of the wrong ingredient you’ll ruin the potion. Money earned by selling your potions can be spent on buying better ingredients so you can make better potions that will earn you a bevy of points.
“The Kennerspiel des Jahres is the absolute highest honor there is for a strategy game,” states Dominic Crapuchettes, Founder, and Co-President of North Star Games. “I am delighted to say that the potion our company has developed for finding great new games is apparently beginning to have an effect, and we cannot wait to introduce this game to the North American market!”
The Quacks of Quedlinburg will be available in stores November 15th, with a retail price of $54.99. You can learn more on Northstar’s website here.
