BGG's Most "Owned" Designers

Board Game Geek has done some research and looked into what game designers have the most games out there that people actually own.
How do you feel about the list? Any major surprises?



From the post:

This is a list of the top 20 game designers in terms of how many of their games BGG users own. I was curious about this statistic, so I did some addition and figured I might as well share it with everyone here as well!

Since this is a number that is constantly changing, I rounded up the numbers to the nearest thousand. I've also included the top 5 owned items from each of these designers.

These numbers do include expansions. I would be curious to see a list like this that didn't include expansions, but that is a list for another day.
