Celestia and New York 1901 round out final five picked from 33 nominees
Gioco dell'Anno, the annual Italian Game of the Year award for tabletop titles, has selected its final handful of finalists.
7 Wonders Duel, Celestia, New York 1901, Codenames and Potion Explosion were selected from 33 nominees in total by a judging panel made up of critics, designers and more from the industry.
The winner of the award will be revealed in October, with a ceremony set to take place in the Lucca Comics and Games store.
Gioco dell'Anno was first handed out in 2013, the result of combining Lucca’s Best of Show prize – which ran for almost two decades from 1993 until 2012 – and another Game of the Year award founded in the nineties.
Finalists for a separate Gioco dell'Anno accolade for this year's Roleplaying Game of the Year (Gioco dell'Anno Dell’Anno) were previously announced, including Mouse Guard, Dawn of Cthulhu and Lone Wolf.
