1992 Games 100

Under Construction -- This is the Games 100 List from 1992.

To do:
  • Verify against GAMES 100 magazine
  • Crosslink games to GAMES 100 wiki


Games in bold are winners. Games in italics are runner-ups. The remainders are nominees.

As with the Games 100 lists from other years, this list includes items that were not necessarily produced in that year. Additionally, this year included some items that were not games such as solo puzzles.

The game designer names are typically not included with these lists. This information was researched from the Boardgamegeek website while designer names in parenthesis were determined exclusively from information from other websites.
