Essen Feather

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Essen Feather (German: Essener Feder) is an award for German-style board games, given at the Deutscher Spiele Preis ceremony at the Spiel game fair in Essen, Germany. The award is given to games with well-written rules, as it was felt that too many good games were spoiled by incomprehensible rules.[1]

The trophy is a brass goose quill and inkwell on a chessboard.
