Kinderspiel des Jahres
The Kinderspiel des Jahres is awarded every year to the best children's game by a jury of German game critics. This award is to children's games what the Spiel des Jahres is to family games.
2001 was the first year that the Kinderspiel des Jahres was officially awarded. Prior to that year, it was the Sonderpreis "Kinderspiel" (Special Prize for Best Children's Game). Since the intent behind both awards is the same, it is customary to refer to the 1989 - 2000 Sonderpreis winners as having won the Kinderspiel des Jahres.
Games are listed with the standardized BGG name, which in some cases is different from the name listed at the Spiel des Jahres website.
