One of our favorite flicking games, Ice Cool, has received the Kinderspiel des Jahres award as the Best Children’s Game of the Year 2017!
Together under the pseudonym ‘Brian Gomez’, Egils Grasmanis, Jānis Grunte, Edgars Zaķis and Reinis Butāns created this wacky and delightful game and published it through Brain Games. Ice Cool has 15 international editions with translation into more than 20 languages!
Jess: I was slightly disappointed to learn it was not translated into Penguin, but otherwise this is awesome news!
Ice Cool was one of three nominees for the Spiel des Jahres award ceremony in Hamburg, Germany and after winning, CEO of Brain Games, Egils Grasmanis said “Already when we found out that Ice Cool was listed among the three best children’s games of the year, we felt great pride and joy. Receiving this award is truly an honor – it is the highest acknowledgement of our game’s quality and value.”
Jess: Congratulations to Brain Games and the Ice Cool team for this prestigious award!
