Ever wondered which was the best game released the year you were born?
Well stop wondering! Here is the list of the best games released each year, year after year!

This list is based on the BGG ranking.

For each year I have gotten the best ranked game released and some of the other notable ones!

Note: I've been using the advanced search tool to determine the list and used minor ratings for each year so there might be some games that sould (maybe) be here and aren't.

The list goes back to 1959, the year of Diplomacy, Risk and Memory!
edit: It goes back to 1934 now!

I might go back further later on but for the moment, I hope you enjoy!

edit 2: I've updated year 2008 anf started year 2009 but note that before Essen, year 2009 hasn't got a lot of chances of being very accurate as most games will go out in November with the Essen fair.

I'm not editing every year so there should be some inconsistencies in rankings for older years, I'll change if I notice some but won't make too much effort. The orders aren't very likely to have changed anyway.


edit 3: added 2010, updated years 2009 and 2008 (both had a change of winner!). 30 march 2011. Too early yet to make a 2011 item.

1935:

The winner:

Easy Money:
Raw Rating: 4,82
BGG Rating: 5,22
BGG Rank: 4672
And Monopoly IS BEATEN (but not by much!)!!
We can see how the financial crisis marked its time with "easy money", isn't the name attractive in those difficult times?

The most popular and yet most hated (probably) game:

Monopoly:
Raw Rating: 4,52
BGG Rating: 4,43
BGG Rank: 4857

Note that for the same year there is a Monopoly - Swedish released that does even worse: Raw rating = 3,99...
