Essener Feder

Donated by the City of Essen this award was created to incite publishers to pay more attention to how they write the rules, which all too often are so poorly written that they make the game completely incomprehensible.
 
The award is a challenge trophy formed as a brass goose quill and ink pot on a chessboard (my illustration is not the real thing), which is given at the ceremony of the Deutscher Spiele Preis during the Essen Spiel Fair in October.
The award winner is usually announced in mid September.
