I think I may be starting to enjoy crafting games almost as much as playing them - it seems like I almost have at least one project in the works lately.

Some of these I've created and haven't actually had a chance to play yet, I'll try to leave my thoughts about the play on them when I have.

Although now being printed again by Mayfair, this highly popular train game was out of print for a while, and some kind souls created print-it-yourself components for those missing out.
So far I haven't played my physical copy of the game yet, but hope to in the future while in the meantime I get in play over the internet.

Primarily available as print and play (though I think you can also order it from Deep Thought?) this "trimmed down" version of 1830 is a great little game. Another one that I play all the time over the internet but I've not yet gotten the physical game to the table.

It's been out of print for a while, but there are DIY cards available from places like ArtsCow. I picked up a set with alternate artwork, and have matching colored beads to use instead of cubes.
Played this one quite a bit over Yucata, and hope to get my wife to try the physical copy soon.

Not bad once you get the hang of all of the book-flipping.
Really, really hard to make any progress in though - expect to die a *lot*.
Side note - there's now a very swanky looking re-theme available for download.

This abstract has probably been in my collection for over 15 years - honestly it's been so long since I've played it I don't remember if it's any good or not.

A solitaire firefighting game.
From the description, I was hoping it might turn out to be one of those "gems in the rough" when it comes to little games like this.
Unfortunately though, it's just rough.

Not bad, especially for the price!
Has a bit of that Barbarian Prince feel, but is much less labor-intensive.
(And, just like BP, I die a *lot* in this game)

Fun little filler where you try to outguess the weather to figure out how many cups of lemonade you can sell (and for how much) while figuring out how much you should be spending on supplies to make it. That probably makes it sound more complex than it is. This game is fully Wife Approved, which is an added bonus.

Have only played solo so far, but is a very interesting game. Makes you think, trying to figure out the best way to get a high score - and trying to remember to get your combos closed before you run out of tiles!

Not much strategy here, very random (I think this is the only game where I've managed to lose on the FIRST card drawn) and pretty much just a matter of drawing a card and then doing what it says, with some decision making as far as if you want to wait for a "better deal," if you want to buy upgrades, etc. It's an interesting distraction though with some clever ideas. I'd also like to see a larger table-top playmat to use with cubes or something similar, as the "holding it in your hand" thing just isn't working for me. [Current high: 47VP]

Based on my solo play, it seems like an interesting "press your luck" distraction for train gamers, but the heavy reliance on dice rolling removes most of the strategic aspects.

Built this one with the updated artwork, along with a handmade folding backboard and handmade cubes.
Finally got a chance to play a two-player game, and it's pretty fun for a light, semi-short rail game experience (this game probably took like 90 minutes, but that was including explaining how the game works and two somewhat tired players who would sometimes lose track of what they were doing). We agreed that it would have been better with 3 as there would likely have been much more player interaction, however it's not bad with 2, and works as a really nice introduction to basic rail gaming concepts.

I created all of the components such as the map, cards, etc based just on a text file on a web site. Looks interesting, and has a kind of cool tech upgrade track for the railroads, but appears to have a very bad (and probably not fixable) runaway leader issue.

This game, later released commercially as Draco & Co, was available for a while as print-and-play, and I have a copy.
I also had the commercial version. Neither seemed like that great of a game, and I've yet to be able to talk anybody into playing them.
