This is a list of my personal top 5 favorite designers based on what I have played and my collection.

The second top 5 list are designers with 1 or just a small amount of games that I would like to see way more from.

I encourage any comments or suggestions on games or designers or both

#1-Jim Barnes

Jim Barnes changed my life. When I was younger I was always a fan of board games. Clue, Monopoly, etc. In 1988 I purchased a game called Statis Pro Baseball and board games took on a whole new meaning for me. This is the game and designer that launched me into the board gaming world. Jim Barnes was also my inspiration behind starting my own design/publishing company of sports simulation games.

He is the only designer that I have two games in my top 10 list. #2-Colonia is my favorite Euro game. It doesn't get alot of love on BGG but I love the game.

#10 on my list is Shogun/Wallenstein. Great games! I also enjoy Alhambra/New York, Show Manager, and Speculation.

Even though there are no Feld games in my current top 10 or 15, there are a bunch I really enjoy. I like Trajan, Bora Bora, and Bruges.

Agricola, Le Havre, and Glass Road are all games I really enjoy. I will also be getting Caverna at some point and I can't wait to play that one.

These next 5 are designers that I love what I have played so far and would love to see them design more games.

#1-Brandon Tibbetts.

I love Manhattan Project. The expansions make it even better. After such a great game I really want Mr. Tibbetts to design some more.

#2-Team Nations

What a fantastic game. I'm a big fan of Civ builders in general and I love Through the Ages. Nations is a fan favorite of my group and I would love to see this team continue to make great games.

To my knowledge Constantinopolis is the only game he has designed. I really like this game alot and think it is one of the most underrated games on BGG. I would love to see him do some more.

I have never played Space Dealer. I plan to. I love Time N Space. I don't normally enjoy games like that but for some reason everything just clicks for me. The balance, the mechanics, the tension, just a really good game. Would love to see some more.

Both Viticulture and Euphoria are great games. I am really looking forward to what he comes up with next after he is done with the expansions.
