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.
