Gnome Games nominated for 2023 Toy and Game Innovation Excellence Award for Innovative Retailer

STURGEON BAY – Pat and Paula Fuge, owners of Gnome Games, were recently notified that they are a finalist for a prestigious TAGIE Award from People of Play (POP). Now in its 16th year, the TAGIEs honor the most innovative inventors, designers, suppliers, retailers, marketers and PR teams in the toy and game industry. 


Head Gnome Pat Fuge, says of the nomination, “Paula and I were surprised when we got word of the nomination. We had no idea. It’s quite an honor to be nominated as the innovative retailer of the year alongside big bog superstars like FAO Schwartz, who everyone knows. It’s very humbling, especially when you think of all the retailers out there. We’ve been putting games on tables across northeastern Wisconsin for over 20 years and many of our programs and community partnerships have had a positive impact at the industry level.

But now Gnome Games needs your help. Online public voting for the awards ends on October 20, 2023. You can visit the TAGIE Awards Finalist page here: to learn more about Gnome Games and the rest of the finalists, and to cast your vote. Winners will be announced November 3, 2023.
