The initial idea regarding the year used in the name of the award was to use the same year as the year during which all nominated games were published in Poland. That's why e.g. the award for 2005 was given in spring 2006 to a game published in Poland in 2005. In 2007 the committee decided to change "the enumeration part of the name". Since then the award for games published in Poland in previous year bears the current year (that the award was given) in the name. This is the reason why there is no "Game of the year" for 2006.
