Women & Nonbinary Board Game Designers

In 2018, only 7 games of the top 200 on Board Game Geek had a non-male designer involved. (It's now up to 15.) I got tired of being called "one of very few non-male board game designers," so I started compiling a list and ended up with  over 200 women with published games.

Want to learn who's out there?

I have moved my list to a series of Geeklists on Board Game Geek. Please add any designers you know about!
