My guess without looking anything up would be Ticket to Ride.

Depends which honors you value, but if you mean the most commonly accepted industry/critics awards of the past couple decades, my guess would be Settlers of Catan. I could be wrong.

I've heard that Qwirkle claims the title. (Whether it deserves those awards is another question entirely.)

I would think Poker has dished out the most cash awards of all time.

More books written about chess than there are other games combined?

Just looking at the "hits" of the previous 20 years, Ticket To Ride is by far the winner in most awards. So I guess it gets one more.

Depends on what you are looking at.

If you want to know what game has won the most Geek Madness Aldie Awards, that is Power Grid.

It is a 4 time winner, 3 time runner up, 1 time semi-finalist, and 3 time quarterfinalist.:

Tried to come up with counts for some games... and found it extremely difficult. What counts as an award? A nomination? nominations in multiple categories? Some random website?

Anyway, here were my leaders. My method was totally non-scientific, just counting up what was listed as linked awards on BGG, and trying not to double count a nomination and a win for the same award. feel free to add to this.



Dominion: at least 34
7 Wonders: at least 31
Pandemic: at least 28
Qwirkle: at least 18
King of Tokyo: at least 17
Ticket to Ride: at least 17
