Certainly my two favorite designers, but Uwe Rosenbergwill always be king for me, and A Feast for Odin is certainly one of the greatest games ever. I play his games most of the time. Every big box (except Mercator, haven't played yet) I love and will play anytime.

You have got to be kidding me.. every single one of his games are nearly identical apart from 1 core mechanism. Now do not get me wrong he is up there, and has made some shockingly good games, but I am not along I would suspect in thinking that his games are by the numbers and repetitive from one to another. He need to break out of his rut and try something new for a change.

Meanwhile you have people like Vital or Chvátil who actually make brand new games and themes that are innovative, fresh and in no way related to any game they have made before.

So when Uwe makes a game that isn't an tile offer we can talk .. for at the moment his main design idea is "lets put more stuff in the box". Giving us a wide choice IS NOT the same as giving us complexity of choice and after 10 years of him basically making a new version of the same game I just can not get excited for anything he dose.

He is very repetitive imo. Having said that, Agricola All Creatures is one of the best two player games ever. And Patchwork was a lovely departure from his farming fixture.

Ozzy, as usual, I'm with you. I find most of his games "meh", worthy of a play to check out, but most often not for me. I like Agricola and Patchwork, but Glass Road might be my favorite of his.

I've played quite a few games over the last five years and would have to say that I would agree with the rankings you have pointed out. There is a reason his games would make him the top game designer. You could easily argue that he uses similar mechanics in many of his games, but that is beside the point. Most if not all of his games are great games that incorporate the theme flawlessly. Also, his big box games have just the right level of complexity for me.
