Well, you remember most German "Game of the Year" (SdJ) Awards but hey there were also a bunch of Special Awards.
This is a list for your convenience that lists the Games that were awarded by one of those German special awards over the past 20 years.
Summary:
11x Special Award Kids Game of the Year (1989-1999)
11x Special Award Beautiful Game (1986-1997 without '92)
2x Special Award Dexterity Game (1996+1997)
1x Special Award Cooperative Family Game (1988)
1x Special Award Puzzle (1995)
1x Special Award History in a Game (2001)
1x Special Award Literature in a Game (2001)
1x Special Award Fantastic/Fantasy Game (2006)
1x Special Award Complex Game (2006)

After having for 10 years a regular special award for kids game of the year, the jury decided to introduce in 2000 the official Kids Game of the Year award.
It seems that game components became more and more beautiful so that at the end of the nineties this award disappeared.
All other prizes remained more or less unique.

You won't find the 1995 Award "Puzzle Game" in this list because its prizewinner 3D Krimi-Puzzle" from MB is a solitaire game which is not in the BGG database.

The most prolific author is Alex Randolph winning such an special Award 4 times followed by Reinhold Wittig getting it 3 times.
