2000 Games 100

Under Construction -- This is the Games 100 List from 2000.

To do:
  • Verify against GAMES 100 magazine
  • Crosslink games to GAMES 100 wiki
  • Add #76,77, and 96


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

As with other years of the games 100, the list included items that were not necessarily produced in that year.

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.
