Hello!

I thought it would be nice if everybody would post his top 3 designers on this thread.

I have been looking for some rankings:

- The newest I found on BGG was this one https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/207397/top-25-designers-a...
1º Uwe Rosenberg 2º Vlaada Chvátil 3º Corey Konieczka

- I also found a video of Tom Vasel on the Dice Tower with his own ranking:
1º Richard Garfield 2º Uwe Rosenberg 3º Bruno Cathala

- Finally, the top 3 designers on a public debate website with an interesting top ten list of designers and their creations (and many other notable designers), where users can vote for their favorite author(https://netivist.org/debate/best-board-game-designers)
1º Vlaada Chvátil 2º Reiner Knizia 3º Uwe Rosenberg

Uwe Rosenberg is the only designers within the top 3 in the three rankings.

My top 3 would be:
1º Uwe Rosenberg 2ºAntoine Bauza 3º Martin Wallace

What's yours?

I can see the argument for Uwe being #2, but this is how I would list them.

I'm super new to this, so new that I don't have a top 3.
But I do like Antoine Bauza and Matt Leacock.
That may be because I like cooperative games and they have a few good ones to their credit.

Check out Clockwork Wars. It's a pretty darn good dudes on a hex map Euro'ish steampunk game. Quick and fun.

Tough question:

1 - Vital Lacerda. The Gallerist and CO2 are just so awesome.

2 - Uwe Rosenberg. I don't love all his work but Agricola is forever loved.

3 - Mac Gerdts. First for Concordia, but there's also all his rondel games.

1. Bruno Faidutti
2. Wolfgang Kramer
3. Martin Wallace

Honorable mention to Vladimir Suchy, hope he puts out enough titles to justify an all around top designer spot.

According to my recorded plays on here (which misses out several years playing a lot of MtG), owned by designer & hours played by designer, it looks like my top 3 are Donald X Vaccarino, Reiner Knizia & Tony Boydell.
Although this year a case could be made for Amanda Craig & Darrell Hardy

Personally, it would be: Uwe, Vital and the Splotter Dudes.

But honestly, asking this question is like asking, "who's the best musician?", or "who's the top athlete?" The opinions are going to be all over the place (though I'm gratified to see Uwe's name on so many lists!)

May your troubles be less, and your blessing be more. And nothing but happiness, come through your door.

1) Christian Peterson - Twilight Imperium and StarCraft are phenomenal. Both top 10 games ever for me. Several other notable mentions too.

2) Francis Tresham - 1830 and Civilization, what more needs to be said?

3) Reiner Knizia - Somewhat hit or miss, but the sheer quantity of different games takes a lot of talent and many are really, really good.

Maybe Bauza

The first two are a lock for me.
