Nominated: Family game "Plan B" with original Anker Stones

Nominated: Family game "Plan B" with original Anker Stones

Toys are supposed to be fun for children! They should awaken their creativity and foster their skills. Every year, thousands of new toys are released. The readers of the magazine "Familie & Co." choose from this large variety each year. An independent expert jury previously nominated the family-game "Plan B" for the prize.
The prize, which is Europe's only people's choice award, is presented every year by the publishing group Family Media and the German Toy Industry Association. The nomination by the expert jury alone is regarded as a high accolade in the industry. 

Sometimes, a Plan B is required in order to achieve a goal. The eponymous family game "Plan B" from goki is nominated for the coveted prize in the category "For the Whole Family". Like architects, players design houses and parks. Three houses in one colour must be built next to each other, but the other players can scupper their plans at any time. The rules are surprisingly simple, and the game is varied and exciting. Critics are fascinated. With "Plan B", a game has finally appeared which works across generations.
The unique aspect of the game is that the game pieces used are original ANKER building bricks. The Anker stones have been manufactured for over 130 years in the Rudolstadt, Thuringia according to a recipe created by the Lilienthal brothers. These are purely natural products. They are ecologically sound and with their weight and their unique feel they create a very special appeal.

Voting takes place on the Internet

The nominated toys are published in the latest issue of the magazine "Familie & Co." and can also be seen on the Internet at the website www.das-goldene-schaukelpferd.de, where voting for the "Golden Rocking Horse" will take place up to 2 July 2013.
