A handy guide for those intent on collecting every game to win the famous German prize. Or if you just want to see whether you have played every one of them.

If you disagree with a choice for a particular year, which game do you think should have won? Considering this, you may or may not like to keep in mind that the jury has been mostly concerned with finding a middle of the road family game.

For additional reference, the Deutscher Spiele Preis winner for the same year is listed in [brackets] starting with 1990. For all the of DSP info see Awards: Deutscher Spiele Preis.
