Award Winners

Listed below (by year) are past winners of the Major Fun Award! We’ve been at it for 15 years, so there’s a tidal wave of fun waiting for you here… over 600 games!

We play hundreds and hundreds of games each year but only a few are selected for this honor. You’ll notice a few have also won a Spiel of Approval Award as well! For more on this award, click here.

Click the image of the game to read or listen to a review and discover why we think its Major Fun! Winners prior to 2015 are listed by title and (eventually) will link to reviews as well.
