The International Gamers Awards were founded in 1999 for the express purpose of recognizing outstanding games, their designers, and the companies which publish them. The awards have gained widespread acclaim and have helped bring these outstanding games to the public’s attention.

The International Gamers Awards committee is extremely proud to announce the winners of the 2016 IGA in the General Strategy category.

Mombasa - Alexander Pfister - Eggertspiele

In the multi-player category, the award goes to Mombasa, the creation of award winning designer Alexander Pfister and published by eggertspiele. Rather than delving into the dark past of colonial oppression, Pfister's design focuses on the economics of the era. Players represent investors in the various companies who were expanding trade in Africa. The game is a deep, challenging affair with many roads to victory...or defeat!


7 Wonders Duel - Antoine Bauza & Bruno Cathala - Repos Productions

The award in the 2-player category goes to 7 Wonders: Duel by designers Antoine Bauza and Bruno Cathala. The game, published by Repos Productions, continues the empire-building theme of the award winning 7 Wonders, bringing the game's exciting atmosphere to a 2-player format. The game is tense and exciting, but is easy to learn and play.
