Age of Industry Wins 2010 International Gamers Award

From the 2010 IGA website:

Martin Wallace’s Age of Industry has won the 2010 International Gamers Award.  Age of Industry, nominated in the General Strategy – Multi-Player Category, is published by Treefrog Games and  distributed in North America by Mayfair Games.  In this streamlined version of Wallace’s popular title Brass, players are tycoons in the early days of the Industrial Revolution, a time when traditional craftsman were rapidly replaced with steam-powered machines. Players invest in the production of raw materials, the manufacturing of goods, and the transportation networks needed to connect them.  This is the second IGA for Wallace and the first for Treefrog and Mayfair.

This year’s nominees were:

The International Gamers Awards were first awarded in 2000 and were created to recognize outstanding games and designers, as well as their publishers.  The committee members represent countries from around the world and their goal is to give greater exposure to great games and to spread the word of the “wonderful world of gaming.”
