À la Carte - Fairplay's Annual Card Game Award - Since 1991
Fairplay, recognizes the best card games every year, as judged by their jury of game collectors and journalists. This list includes the top ten from each year.
Fairplay cites specific editions, enabling an occasional nod to reprints. These games/titles made the top ten more than once (in varying degrees of re-development):
+ Res Publica
+ Trumpet, König Artus' Tafelrunde (?)
+ 6 Nimmt!, Hornochsen!
+ Twilight, Jekyll & Hyde
+ Anno Domini, -Sport, & -Flops
+ Zum Kuckuck, Land Unter
+ Dominion, -Intrige
+ 7 Wonders
See comments for a list of wins by designer.
The distinction of "Runners up" is my own. Fairplay awards one publication and provides a ranked list of other top scoring titles.
TIP: To peek at the primary names used on BGG (which sometimes change with reprints) instead of the German titles awarded by Fairplay, check your browser's statusbar when hovering over a game link.
