This game must not be forgotten in this context. I just now start to really appreciate this game after disliking it for some time.

This might be a good place to point out that Euphrat & Tigris is the highest rated game from the 90s.

As of today, this would be my pick. Published in 1991, but I didn't discover it until ten years later!

My thoughts on the five "best" of the decade:

1. Tichu
2. Euphrat & Tigris
3. Magic: The Gathering (although I no longer play)
4. RA
5. Daytona 500

Next five might be something like (in no particular order) El Grande, Modern Art, RoboRally, Hannibal, and Bohnanza.

Surprized that this game isn't the list. I believe I was one of Knizia's early successes.

I really like this card/board game. It's the best card game I've ever played (but I haven't played hundreds of card games).

Simply the best CCG! Where storytelling, playing, deck construction, tournaments and the development of the clans are all interlinked into a single, unique game. Never saw a game like this again ever since. The Seven Thunder story-arc was absolutely fantastic!

And this is the game that got me interested in Warhammer 40k in the first place. Plastic Marines boarding a space ship on a mission of destruction/rescue/reconnasence.

Definitely one of my favourite games. While technically from the 80's, the edition released at that time doesn't in any way resemble the popular 3d edition. The Rogue Trader was more a Roleplaying Game with miniatures combat than an actual tabletop-boardgame.
