So for the fourth year I have put together a list for fun of the top designers as we rate them as BGG Users.

I use a system of assigning 250 points for designing the Number 1 game (Twilight Struggle) to 1 point for designing the Number 250 game (Legends of Andor). There are lots of games which are hits for short period of time but to rise high and stick around in the BGG Top 250 you need to have created a masterpiece.

Feel free to comment, heckle and cheer as you see fit.

Find the previous three years here;

Back in 2011 this list was a two horse race between Martin Wallace and Reiner Knizia, they have been the top 2 for each list so far. One thing has not changed, Martin Wallace remains our number 1 designer with nine games in the Top 250 and Brass still in the Top 20. This year was the closest year ever however and Martin only won on a tie break! His next highest rated game outside the top 250 is just six places ahead of his rival in second place.

A Few Acres of Snow (2011) is his newest release in the top 250, last year's A Study in Emerald is inside the top 400. Mythotopia seems the more likely of his 2014 releases to possibly make a splash but both of those games have not been as widely available as some would have hoped. Is distribution holding Martin back from another mega-hit? Ships is on the horizon (see what I did there?) and that has juices of heavier gamers flowing for 2015. He needs a strong showing to retain his Number 1 place for next year's list.

Riding on a triple wave of X-Wing, Descent 2nd Edition and Eldritch Horror the main man from FFG has kept up a strong showing pinned around the now six years old BSG and he has caught every other designer up, missing out only because Tide of Iron is behind Princes of the Rennaissance in the rankings. Eight Top 250 games and lets face it Imperial Assault is going to keep pushing him onwards in the next year or two. It is Imperial Assault vs Ships for the top spot next year, or is it? Actually the Top 5 are all in within one big hit of each other. Interesting times if you like that sort of thing.

Big leap forward as the FFG hit production line keeps on rolling.

Back in 2011 Uwe had only four games in the Top 250. One of those (Bohnanza) has subsequently dropped out but we were waiting to see if Ora et Labora would make it, spoiler it did (No. 37) and was joined by Caverna, All Creatures Large & Small, and Glass Road. Fields of Arle is newly released and it has the kind of average rating which is Top 20 bothering if it gets a wide enough release. Two player games tend to go well around here.

He has also released the likes of Sissi, Patchwork, Wurfel Bohnanza and Farmerama. It is not all rating smashes and festivals, he has remembered the little people too. He makes green, hour burning, brain mincers and we like them. If FFG are the rolling stone of game production then Uwe is the Bob Dylan.

Which brings us on to the Lady Gaga I suppose. Pop quiz, how many games has Vlaada released since Mage Knight in 2011? 1. Tash-Kalar which is in the top 500 and a hit by any measure apart from perhaps the crazy high standards he set himself in the preceding five years. TTA, Mage Knight, Space Alert, Galaxy Trucker, Dungeon Petz & Lords. Vlaada I love your dozens of expansions but we only have twelve months to save your ranking! Give us some sugar.

How many games has Stefan Feld put out since 2011? The answer is seven which is at least three hundred less than I thought it was, less than two a year from my advanced calculations. Of that crop Bora Bora is just inside the Top 100, Bruges the Top 150 and Amerigo the Top 250. His rating is still anchored on Castles of Burgundy and Trajan from 2011 and Notre Dame and In The Year of the Dragon from 2007 which suggests that his four year gestation period for a real cracking megahit should be giving birth to two amazing games next year. Aquasphere is probably going to graze the Top 100 this time next year so expect him to still slowly maintain his gradual rise.

This pains me. Like ear hair and sore knees, I knew it was inevitable but I still dreaded the day I realised that Dr Knizia was no longer the hottest thing in BGGville. 2014's big releases Family Bingo, Invasion of the Garden Gnomes and Zombie Mania just haven't struck a chord with the ludonistas around here. Shocking. Prosperity was supposed to offer some hope but lingers outside the Top 1000. Orongo was released in a stealth operation from all appearances. So it appears to be ending, not with a bang...

He still has nine games in the Top 250, as many as anyone else, with T&E topping them at 31. That whipper snapper Ingenious is the newest of them and it turned ten this year. I love the smell of cardboard in the morning.

Last year we were waiting for post FFG Kevin Wilson to flex his mental muscles and wow us with what he had in store, it was all about some mysterious game called Abyss. No, not that Abyss. Another Abyss which was supposed to be going on to Kickstarter. I am not sure that it has made it that far yet so with an ageing stable of games Kevin continues to slip a little. Descent 2 is his latest offering in the Top 250 and then it is back to 2010's Civilization. X-Files will get a wide release and big sales so if it lives up to expectations than we could see a rebirth on here. If not, maybe there is something to that FFG stable system?

All aboard four Ticket to Rides and an Airlines Europe. If you want to put stuff on maps then Alan Moon is your man. If the 10th Anniverary pretty edition counted then he would be looking even higher because surprisingly people who like the game enough to shell out on it have rated it quite highly. Wizard's Brew from 2013 has got no traction at all so it is Days of Wonder and Alan skipping off to the bank hand in hand all the way here.

I said this time last year Concordia was going to move Mac up the chart and it has. It has joined his regulars Imperial x2 and Navegador in the 'Mac Gerdts 50 - 100 Zone'. The expansion will keep it up there and he is set for solid showings for a few years yet. Antike is nine years old and sits in the Top 400 so can Antike II with all the fixes and bling also be a success? It has very few ratings so far although a high average so it all depends upon distribution again, if you sell it they will come.

He has Steam Ship Company lined up for next year already, it has stocks, a world map and a rondel so I predict that in the 2016 list I will be congratulating him for SSC being in 'The Mac Gerdt 50-100 Zone'.

A couple of C&C, a couple of Battlelores and a Memoir'44 thank you very much. I deploy costant success to my left flank bank account and roll three dice which show expansion success. Battlelore 2 not the huge hit I thought it might have been.

The man never seems to age, weird. Netrunner has been a massive success, currently number 6. Magic, Roborally and King of Tokyo in the Top 250 as well. King of New York will need the big sales its elder sister did to make a similar splash in the Top 100 but will probably score next year.

If only the poor fella could work out a way to print money in the form of addictive card games. Nah, that could never happen twice.

He was the highest new entry last year and it has been a year of consolidation. 7 Wonders, Hanabi, Ghost Stories and Takenoko are all on the Top 250. Rampage is unlikely to make it in. He still has the air of hotness around him but it is three years now since a Top 250 game, will Conan help him regain momentum?

You can see from his ranking that Christian has taken more of a back seat at FFG now days, overseeing rather than designing himself. Nothing new from him in five years apart from a credit for A Game of Thrones 2 which may well be similar to what will happen if he maintains a design credit after the A Game of Thrones Card Game reboot in the summer. I am sure he enjoys watching his protege rising through the ranks. He reads this right?

Abluxxen is a fun card game but not going to halt Wolfgang's slide. Coal Baron and Palaces of Carrara sit inside the Top 500 but won't score either, he has six more games inbetween 250 and 500. Most of them have slid gradually down the ratings. Classics El Grande, Princes of Florence and Tikal score for him.

Donald has a hex on me and its name is seventeen. Spooky. Two Dominion's in the Top 25. Greed won't impact the top of the ratings. Temporum seems to be well received on previews and small release so far, another lighter game with flexiblity. Will lightning strike this time?

also Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello.

The War of the Ring boys benefit from a double helping of red and blue fighty plastic. Battle of Five Armies has a similarly stellar average rating and I expect will be a slow burner up the ratings for the next couple of years and will push them up these rankings. Redubber Age of Conan on the way, flawed but interesting first time around so can they bring some Middle Earthesque magic to it?

If you want to see who is going to be the highest riser in next year's rankings then look here. Marvel Dice Masters has him back in the game as it has broken the Top 200. On the way are DM Uncanny Xmen, Warhammer: Conquest LCG, Arcadia Quest if it sells more as has a cracking average rating, DM Justice League, D&D DM, DM Age of Ultron, possibly XCOM althought that has a strangely low average right now and will he have a hand in the new Game of Thrones LCG?

Yes all those Dice Masters games will apparently have separate entries, God help us. I don't see it myself but I am battening down for the flood. Mr Lang will have a big 2015.

Speaking of multiple rankings for one game, four versions of Summoner Wars later and Colby is our last designer on the list. Another version on the way, Alliances. City of Remnants just made the Top 1000. Mostly publishing rather than designing but the SW has got legs.
