There are lots of Game Awards each year. I wanted to see who would win each years award if they were voted on by all BGG members.

So I have compiled a list of all the top ranked game for that year listed in year order working backwards. As the number of games is getting less and harder to exactly date there are individual years back to 1910, then decades back to 1800, then centuries back to 1000, then milleniums.

I have also begun listing the runners up. Any games that are very close to winning their year are in the runners up list in bold.

Some older years have no ranked games (ranking requires at least 30 ratings), or in some cases not even any games rated at all. Other old years an extremely low ranked gamed has won just because it is the only game with a ranking for that year. In these cases where there are no or only one ranked game I have listed the contenders for winning the year if they only had a few more ratings. Please help by adding ratings where you can to give a more accurate winner of the year.

While the bulk of the list is done, I am still working on completing and polishing the format of this list.
