Every now and then comes the question: Are there any games invented by women?

Most certainly.

I thought it might be interesting to have a look at a representative sample of these games.

One not yet in the database:

Anne Diehl - Wertwolle Schatze
http://www.speldatabase.be/spelinfo.php?id=6381&zoekcriteria...

Any more?

Only one mention for each designer please.

Kristin Looney

Funny, my copy of the game (2nd Edition) only credits Andrew Looney. But as Andrew's wife, I'm sure Kristin has plenty of input on all of his games. She also runs "the business end" of Looney Labs, and is credited with developing the Icehouse games Martian Backgammon and Volcano.
