We know what designer games look like, but what about designer signatures? This list is a pictorial gallery of signatures of designers and game artists. Please add any more images of autographed games that you know of, to help make this list more complete!

What do you think these "scribbles" say about the personality and character of these designers? Any amateur handwriting analysts out there? I've suggested a few to get things started. Go ahead and speculate and let your imagination run wild!

Yeah it's here! Really it's right here.
mbmbmbmb
So, here's a signature of Marco Maggi.

I'll even add my story. My wife and I went to Venice a few years ago. When I travel, I visit game shops and will pick up a few games here and there (even though I can normally get them cheaper at home). Walking through the streets, we ran across a Kite and Toy store that had a descent size board gaming section (larger then most gaming stores around here). I was surprised and happy so I picked up a copy of Lupus in Tabula and Venice Connection. Little small things.

It wasn't until after we got home that I ran across a listing for that shop and realized it was owned by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi.

Approximately a year later we decided to spend Thanksgiving in Venice with the whole family. So, my wife made it a point to get me to go back. We searched and searched for where we thought it was, but couldn't find it. Finally my saw a sticker she thought was 'kite like' in the window of a store that was all 'papered' up and getting remodeled. But, there was movement in there. Even though my wife and I are very introverted and don't really speak Italian, she decided to go ahead and 'walk in'. The couple people in there working were surprised my my wife. But, she tried to explain to them we were looking to the toy store that use to be in this spot. The communication wasn't the greatest, but they understood each other and told us that they had moved to another Island (Giudecca).

So, one day my son and I decided to see if we can find it. My wife taught me a phrase, something like 'Do you know where the game store is?' and I went off.

We took the boat out there and then I realized that it's not that small of an Island and that there were a lot of small allies it could be in. But, I tried anyway. I stopped by a few shops and tried the phrase. they just stared at me. We were about to give up when I spotted a toy store. Alex and I walked in and sure enough it was it.

Marco Maggi was in there and I introduced myself and we talked quite a while. He kept apologizing for his English. I was just happy he knew it because I basically only knew one phrase in Italian and I was already there.

He talking about design friends and all of them that were around Venice, their Mentors, and there desire to open a 'games design studio' just a few blocks behind the shop.

I asked about his first game. Which turned out to be an RPG. It sounded interesting, but had only ever been released in Italian.

He pulled out some bits from his up coming release of Age of Conan: The Strategy Board Game and was very excited about the sculpts.

I picked up a couple of his early 'family card games' 4 X 4 and Goal and also a copy of Hector and Achilles.

That's when I realized I didn't have a camera. So, I opened up the Hector game and asked him to sign it. He seemed a bit hesitant. I guess he's not use to it or something or maybe it was just the end of a long day.

I still haven't played the card games, I really should. But have played Hector a couple times and have enjoyed it a bit.

He excitement rubbed off and I did get a copy of Conan when it came out, but have yet to play it. It seems games of that nature that play 5 players seem to be easier to get to the table then 4 around my group.

All in All it was a fun adventure.

His writing indicates he has a civil (war) personality that . He enjoys art(illery) and visiting his uncle BROWNERS FARM. He has a wide "Range" of emotions while able to PROBE LEFT and PROBE RIGHT side of peoples brains.
He has (New) Hope but occasionally he is often on the the ATTACK WITH UP TO 1 to 3 times the force of many people, and can sometimes just be ALL OUT OFFENSIVE. He can be very COORDINATED with his ATTACKS, but REINFORCES weaker persons with his RALLYing attitude although he has been known to RUN SHORT OF SUPPLIES. His LEADERSHIP is strong but it often seems to be HIT AND RUN.
