I've been into designer games for the last 10 years or so. Most of playing is with my wife. We host game days at our house, plus we try to get to Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Newton, and Des Moines to play with groups in those places.
My Hot 10 are the games that are seeing more action now than the others. My Personal Top 10 are simply my favorites at this time, not weighted for nostalgia. I don't update this very often.
My web page is actually my wife's. She writes quilting books and together we publish them from our home. We also designed a game called Quilt Show
, which debuted at Origins in June, 2014. It was one of the winners of the inaugural Rio Grande Games Design Contest. The San Francisco Chronicle
named it one of the top family games of 2014.
