I was building a piece for an OOP game the other day and got to thinking about how when I asked for a picture of the missing piece the designer of the game replied and sent me the picture that I needed. I then started to look at the other questions and comments that were in the forum for the game and realized that one of the two designers had answered every question that had been asked. I then remembered another game that I had received similar help from the designer.

This leads me to this Geek List. Please list games where the designers themselves have been active and answered questions in a timely manner.

Even though tis game is over 17 years old I did not see a forum where one of the two designers did not comment or answer the questions asked.

The designer of Garden Dice, Doug Bass, is very active in the forums for his game. I suspect he has subscribed to his own game because he ALWAYS comments on other users postings about his game.

When Shem Phillips sent me this it was literally encased in bubble wrap (2 layers) and a hard cardboard shell. As good as new. Extremely quick shipping as well. Here's to hoping that I like it as much as I did Plethora and Capek.

There is a reason I have the "North Star Games Fan" micro badge. This guy is that reason. The positive energy that he sprinkles throughout the community is contagious and inspiring. I tip my hat to the cap'n.
