I'm a Software Engineer specializing in Computer Security. I am a member of the Silicon Valley Boardgaming Group which meets at the Rengsdorf Park Community Center in Mountain View, CA on Tuesday nights and also sponsors the So Bay Area Gamedays. I've worked on several game ideas over the years, but have not tried to get any published, but would like to. My favorite piecepack game (not my own) is AlienCity. My current favorite commercial games are Race for The Galaxy, Power Grid (Funkenschlag) and Age of Steam. I collect vintage and current railroad themed games of all types. My other hobbies are Origami, Japanese Anime and Manga, Comic Books, Science Fiction and collecting rocks and fossils. My whole extended family plays games and most family gatherings are non-stop gaming sessions.
As of August 2004 there are updated versions of all my games up on the BigBoard.
|Deduction||cup or bag, paper and pencil for each player|
|GlobalWarming||(3) (7)||cup or bag|

The tiles are 2" x 2" x 3/16" opaque white Plexiglas. The coins and cubes are clear acrylic. The pawns I got from Cheapass Games. I got the downloadable PDFs color laser printed on 8" x 11" Avery labels at Kinkos, cut them out and stuck them on.
Mark, this is a beautiful set. Where did you get the acrylic and Plexiglas pieces? --ChrisBrooks
