That seems like such a small sum of money to cause all this ruckus.


I agree, both parties should just send me $50,000 and I'll take all the flak from BGG and both sides. No problem whatsoever.

Regarding Mediation.

I should note that about 3 years ago, I arranged for a mediation between Mr. Wallace, and Mr. Bohrer on the Age of Steam issue. The mediator was none other than the honorable Dr. Franz-Benno Delonge, a German judge, and game designer himself. Unfortunately Mr. Delonge passed away a while after this has transpired (please purchase a copy of "Transamerica" in his memory.)

After much discussion and deliberation over several weeks, Dr. Delonge sided with Mr. Bohrer's claim.

However, Mr. Wallace decided that he did not care for the final decision, and chose to not abide by the mediation, despite the efforts and investment of both mine and Dr. Delonge's time, and a fair process.

I provide these fact to discourage both FRED and anyone here from participating in any mediation in such a dispute.

I don't have any interest in providing additional detail on this history, except to provide these facts as assistance to the parties involved in this painful process and as insight for any BGG member that is considering donating his time.

I see that, no matter who is in the right and wrong, the haters of FRED have shown up - yelling at them no matter what they do.

I wish, along with everyone else, that this matter had been kept private. But it's very apparent that some people can't separate their like/dislike of folks from the facts.


But, but... Martin designed a game someone liked and FRED once produced dice that weren't very clear. How can there be any question of who is in the right here?

Oh please settle this so we can all get our hands on a copy of Brass--AKA Brass 2--that we can actually get new people in the hobby to actually play.
