Sid Sackson (1920-2002) was a noted America game designer, often considered the most prolific and respected game designer of the late twentieth century. Sackson was also recognized for his personal game collection, which numbered in the tens of thousands. Aspiring inventors sent him their games for his opinion; he also collected numerous popular games of the period. He used this game collection as a research tool and as inspiration for his own creations. Sackson authored several books on games and gaming, the most recognized is "A Gamut of Games." He kept detailed diaries of games he'd played, the details of the play, and whether he'd enjoyed them. Later in his life he indexed these diaries for the use of future game scholars. The gaming community and the electronic gaming community both acknowledge a debt to Sackson.
