" great response from those who enjoy games like Monopoly, Life and Easy Money."

'Nuff said.

Two bits of criticism which, if our hero or his (*cough*) wife still troll the forums here (and why wouldn't they when they've applied BGG's collective wisdom to improve their diabolical masterpiece), may be erudite enough to be opaque to said "Mad Massachussetsian."

*COUGH*

Though, adding a certain strip element -- along with shots of ol' "turkey-eye" if you know what I mean -- might make the game more impelling.

Another gem, not so opaque: click "Game and Components" on his website and look at the "Actual Game Board." You'll notice that the southwest is bass-ackwards, showing Arizona and New Mexico east of Texas as well as mirrored.

Nuf!

Oh, and the photo of the designer on the "About Me" section is not only professional and begs your confidence, but also screams "legitimate businessman."

I will give him one thing: he's working on the idea and sticking with it!

Actually, I couldn't find this section. The only one close to it is "Game & Componets".

My god, I wish I'd looked at this website sooner...would have given me more ammunition to use against the "designer's wife" back when the posting was going on. That has to be the absolute WORST graphic design I've ever seen. If I were a printer, I'd almost be ashamed to print something so amateurish and unfinished. Suitable for a playtest copy? Maybe. A production copy, one that people would have to pay for? No way.

I have obviously missed the entire pre-conversation on this topic. I sense it was not favorable to DTS and it's creators.

I am appalled at the investment model: Send me $10 and if I am successful I will give you an option to give me $30 more. If I fail, I will just keep your $10.

Besides Mom & Dad, what kind of people fall for crap like this? I question if it is even legal. This should be called what it is - a risky pre-order! If the run is not made, the money should be returned.

Oh-well, I probably just re-hashed an old argument.
