OK, so I'm in to publishers now (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/13073, http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/13046). On that last list mrbeankc had an interesting thought:

Indeed. So I'm trying to find games that have been published/distributed by multiple publishers. Not just 2 or 3, but 6, 8, 11 or more! Please add.

However the geek is sadly lacking in this department.

Where is JW Spears? Yes I know that they have been swallowed up now, but they certainly were not when they started publishing Scrabble.

There was also the official first publisher - The Production and Marketing Company.

Also I believe that Clemontoni originally imported Scrabble into Italy - although whether that counts or not I don't know.

There may well have been other licensed publishers in other countries (and there certainly were plenty of bootleg ones) but I have little appetite to track them down.
