When you next look around in your favourite friendly local game store, a glint of gold might catch your eye. Repos Production have announced that five of their best-loved games will now carry labels denoting them as Golden Pawn winners!
The Golden Pawn is a label recognising outstanding worldwide sales, awarded by the France-based Union of Board-Game Publishers (UEJ). It is awarded over several levels, recognising sales that range from the excellent to the stratospheric.
Repos’s contingent of winners is led by Time’s Up, a fast-talking party game soon to be relaunched in the United Kingdom with a brand-new edition. This family-friendly title will soon display the Diamond Pawn for having sold over three million copies worldwide.
Card-drafting strategy game 7 Wonders, which holds the distinction of winning more awards than any other board game in history, is recognised with the Platinum Pawn for selling over one million units.
Concept, in which players try to communicate complex ideas or phrases using simple imagery, is rewarded with the Triple Golden Pawn. This level denotes a game which has sold over 750,000 copies across the world.
7 Wonders Duel, the critically acclaimed two-player reimplementation of the civilisation-building game, has sold over 500,000 copies since hitting the scene in 2015 and receives the Double Golden Pawn.
Finally, there is also recognition for When I Dream. This hilarious party game of word association and social deduction has earned the Silver Pawn label for selling over 100,000 units worldwide in just two years since its release.
