Green Ronin's excellent 100 Best series of books invites notable people in the game industry to write about games that they feel ae the "best," for just about any definitino of "best" they like. To eliminate duplicate entries, some writers wrote about their second or third picks. The result is full of fascinating insights, gaming history, and a lot of temptations to buy games you've never heard of.
While reading, I noticed that the same names came up again and again. Avalon Hill published a lot of the games. Steve Jackson seems to have been a popular designer. I became curious about the actual counts. I also became curious about the chain of writers respect. Forunately there is no problem too trivial to attack with some Perl. I've assembled the following information about the games, authors, and designers in the book.
