'Qwirkle' was released FIVE years ago... How was it even ELIGIBLE for this award???

Thanks a bunch for the shout out for Stories in the Ether!

@Scott: According to Wikipedia, the Spiele des Jahres award jury evaluates games that have been released in Germany in the preceding twelve months. According to the commentors over at, Qwirkle didn't get released in Germany until 2010, thus making it eligible for SdJ.
