GAMES, a magazine which is actually more about puzzles than games, started the Hall of Fame in 1984 to
“honour games that have met or exceeded the highest standards of quality and play value and have been continuously in production for at least 10 years; i.e., classics”.
As you can see from the BoardGameGeek user ratings of these games, many players will disagree with the magazine's editors about the “quality and play value”. For more information, see:
