The Gold pawn©, an independent certification which evolves with the economic life of the game


The UEJ (Union des Éditeurs de Jeux de société) is proud to announce the establishment of an official framework for certification of boardgames.

The Gold Pawn© is a certification awarded to a boardgame based on the number of copies sold worldwide. It is an international award, with objective and impartial criteria in the style of Gold Records© in the music industry.

The objectives are:

  • raise awareness for the boardgame industry, its commercial and popular impacts, as well as its best-sellers.
  • give an official and certified framework to these awards which can become a strong point of reference for the public and the press.
  • offer coverage to popular games.
