For me, James Ernest and Bruno Faidutti are tops! They have really inspired me to create games on my own.

Beyond that, hmmm, Andrew Looney for Fluxx and Chrononauts.

So what about the rest of you? Who floats your gaming boats?

Rudiger Dorn, Klaus Teuber, Uwe Rosenberg.

Many games I put high up there (like Caylus, Princes of Florence, Arkham Horror) are the only games I've played by the particular designers, so, although I love them, I can't claim allegiance to anyone based on one game. Overall, I'm more a fan of certain publishers (Alea, Hans im Gluck) rather than designers.

Christian Peterson or Kris Burm, if I had to pick someone. But really, I don't have a favorite.

Why is that embarrassing to say?

Thinking of favorite designers in terms of liking and currently owning many games from the designer, Kris Burm leaps to mind for me too, and also Reiner Knizia.

Also I like and own several games by Franz Benno Delonge, Leo Colovini, John Yianni, and various others.

Is he the guy who re-designed Fury of Dracula? There were some aspects in that game that were just astrocious (my opinion of course). For one, the combat system needs a complete overhaul.

I absolutely love the premise of a movement deduction game and simultaneous card playing combat, and the bluffing element that comes with these. It had so much potential, but the design really failed to bring out the better qualities of these mechanisms. I felt Mr Jack and Lord of the Rings Confrontation made much better use of those mechanisms.

At the moment - Vlaada Chvatil.

Relatively new compared to the other names mentioned on this list but everything so far has been excellent game design. Helped further by CGE's excellent production quality.
