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.
