General geeky blog, Geekosystem, has been running “Power Grid” rankings of the top living geeks. Their latest is 30 Great Gaming Geeks, including:

#19 Richard Garfield (Magic: The Gathering)
#17 Satoshi Tajiri (Pokemon)
#11 Klaus Teuber (Settlers of Catan)
#9 Sid Meier (Civilization)
#6 Monte Cook (Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition)
#3 Reiner Knizia (too many)
#1 Steve Jackson (GURPS)

We know how debatable these lists can be, but it’s nice to see such a representation for tabletop games.
