Your
OFFICIAL SOURCE
for the GAMES 100

Each year since 1980, GAMES Magazine has published a Buyer's Guide to Games in their year-end holiday issue. Except for once or twice in the early 1980s, the article has listed and reviewed one hundred games each year, and was thus dubbed The GAMES 100.

Early in the feature's history, the article served as a reference to many games available on the market, new and old, listing such long-time classic titles as Monopoly, Clue, and Scrabble--and even the occasional toy like Frisbee. In later years, the feature has focused more and more on recognizing the best and most unique new board and card games.

In 1991, GAMES also began recognizing the favorites in each category with a special Best designation, and has selected one game from the whole list to receive the highest honor of Game of the Year.

Through the early 1990s, more and more electronic games were included in the list, with the computer game Myst even winning Game of the Year in 1994. Beginning the following year, computer and cartridge games were split off and given their own separate Electronic Games 100 section.
