When he's not playing games (or designing them), he can be seen bicycling, scuba diving, kayaking, geocaching, and coin collecting. He can also be found at Super Duper Games using the same moniker.

My Game Designs

PYRAMID GAMES

  • Conquest of Mars, an abstract wargame using pyramids, playing cards, and dice, needs playtesters. (2008)
  • Dectana is the first Pyramids+Decktet hybrid, and is my attempt to build a better Gnostica on a new foundation. (2009)
  • Olympus Mons, a chess-like game inspired by field promotion, is ready for playtesting. (2006)
  • Timberland, in which Treehouse meets Volcano, could use some way to control its randomness. (2007)
  • Traction, the game of walking pyramids, needs some basic revisions. (2005)

OTHER GAMES

  • Check Please is a cooperative board game of restaurant waitstaff, and has been compared to the classic videogame Diner Dash. Make your own copy today! (2011)
  • Cube Clash is an abstract strategy game like Chess using Dragon Dice. Alpha rules are up, and looking for playtesters. (2008)
  • DC Dash as a family board game about racing around on the DC Metro system. It's a modern reimplementation of The London Game from the early 1970s. DC Dash is a free print-n-play... go for it! (2010)
  • Ferrball's Mansion is a standalone card game of cartoon mayhem. If you like Munchkin, you'll like this too. Playtesters wanted! (2004)
  • Hydropolis is a city-building game for 2-5 players using a Waterworks deck. Complete rules and revision history are posted on my website, and a German translation is out there. Give it a try, then go to BGG and rate it! (2007)
  • Starships is an open-ended turn-based strategy RPGs about spaceship combat. (1998)
  • Wanderlust is a sneaky Fluxx-like exploration game using double-sided tiles. Make your own copy today! (Now available in French and Japanese.) (2007)
  • Warriors is a homebrewed CCG about melee combat that I designed twenty years ago. v0.90 is now available for download for online play via LackeyCCG. Old-fashioned cardsheets and rules are available upon request. I have been meaning to make preconstructed decks for this, so if that's something you want to see, goad me until I work on it. (1992)
