Major Fun Games for 2010

Updated on December 5, 2010

Each year, puts out a list of games they call the "Major Fun Awards", which "go to games and people that bring people fun, and to any organization managing to make the world more fun through its own personal contributions, and through the products it has managed to bring to the market".

The awards include many types of games, including board games, card games, party games, kids games, educational games, dexterity games, and many games that, frankly, defy classification.

The criteria used to judge games includes:

  • easy to learn (5-15 minutes)
  • played in under an hour
  • fun enough to play over and over again
  • easy to store
  • made to last
  • uniquely fun
  • tend to make people laugh,
  • deep enough to withstand a lot of changes

The list serves as a great way to introduce players to new games, and to encourage publishers to keep producing top-notch titles that are simple to learn and teach yet are interesting enough to hold the attention of new and serious gamers alike.
