Several game designers have been photographed here on BGG, but their pictures are buried along with the other pictures in the gallery for the game. When Geeklisting items, users tend to include a picture of the game box or a set-up board rather than the designer. This list is to serve as a centralized gallery for all of the designers pictured here on the geek with their masterworks.

The list is open for all to post pictures; when possible, I would like for the description to include the name of the person who actually took and posted the photo. For clarity, I didn't take any of these pictures (not many game designers visit me here in Kansas) But I would like to know who did take them so they can be correctly attributed.

A HUGE thanks to Jon Power (EYE of NiGHT), without whom half this list would not be here.

The picture was taken at Essen 2004! It shows Andy, the designer Satoshi Nakamura and me ! Given that I have rated ALL the games of Nakamura with a relative high vote please take all my votes with a "Grain of Salt" http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=...stid=81...
Still I think the games themself don't qualify for the Geeklist above, only because they got some high votes. I really think their games are good enough to be given this high voting. (This only as a quick sidenote)
The photo has been taken by Ritsch (a friend of mine) who I had taken with me on this trip to Essen! cool

I took this picture of Maureen Hiron and Andrea Mainini playing Outfox together in our booth at ESSEN 2004. Sorry it is fuzzy.

Andrea came up with the basic move concept and Maureen recast it with much simpler rules to make it fit into the collection series. Fortunately both are cooperative and good natured, or it never would have seen the light of day.

This was their first time to play it together. I have a few more authors to post, hope to get them up in a week or so.

Last year Andrea came by our booth and showed us many game concepts, some that had won competitions in Italy. Outfox is his first published game as far as I know.

Maureen's first and continuing success was Continuo. She is well known so I needn't say much more. I met her first time in ESSEN 2000 when she took an interest in my Octiles. I refused to give her a copy and she refused to buy. By the end of the show, we had worked out a compromise without either giving in.

Ever since then, we have been working together on Pin's series, "The Games Collection". - Well most of her year is bridge, tennis, game shows, and selling her games, etc. and most of mine is breaking toys and advising on product safety.

Gialmere sent me the link to this picture a very long time ago, but I'd never posted it because I don't know who all is in it. Perhaps putting it to the geek community, we can identify all in the photo.

Left to right, it's Kai Haferkamp (with the glasses) and Markus Nikisch (Schloss Schlotterstein designers), unknown, Leo Colovini, unknown, Reinier Knizia, unknown, unknown, and Dirk Henn.
