The International Gamers Awards, created to recognize outstanding strategy board games in several categories, are chosen by a panel of gamers from around the world.

This game award began in 2000 and was known as the Gamers Choice Award until 2003. Games published between July 1 and June 30 are eligible for consideration. (For example, to be eligible for a 2009 IGA, a game had to be published between July 1, 2008, and June 30, 2009.)
