This is a list of the top 20 game designers in terms of how many of their games BGG users own. I was curious about this statistic, so I did some addition and figured I might as well share it with everyone here as well!

Since this is a number that is constantly changing, I rounded up the numbers to the nearest thousand. I've also included the top 5 owned items from each of these designers.

These numbers do include expansions. I would be curious to see a list like this that didn't include expansions, but that is a list for another day.

Enjoy!


UPDATE - for those of you who are curious what the list would look like with expansions excluded, I have just completed that list. Follow this link: BGG's Most "Owned" Designers v2 (Expansions Excluded).

I never expected this list to be so well received! Thank you all for the thumbs, tips, and comments!
