According to Games Quarterly, Ian Ryan is the designer of this game?

In any case, there is a full page pseudo-article (ie. ad) for this game on page 44 of the Fall 2006 issue (#10, the one containing "The Great River of Catan" mini-expansion).

Some info from the red box:

Type of Game: Board/Strategy Game
Players: 2-5
Length of Play: 120 minutes
Age Range: 12 and up

Another quote from the article:

Aoge of Empires III is being hailed as Eagle Games best game to date and will feature beautiful artwork from the PC game and from Egale Games' own Paul Niemeyer. Aoge of Empires III will have hundred of figures including colonist, merchants, captains, missionaries and soldiers. Age of Empires III will be available Fall 2006.

I was more curious about "Designer: Ian Ryan" as the BGG game entry says "Designed By: Glenn Drover"...

Re: According to Games Quarterly, Ian Ryan is the designer..
Glenn has personally said that he is the designer, so I think that Game Quarterly is wrong.

Does Glenn have children that he is perhaps using their name(s) for designer credit? Similar aliasing is not unknown.

For what it's worth, there is a designer "Ian Ryan" in the BGG database, see http://www.boardgamegeek.com/designer/5755

Only one game credited "Fullmetal Alchemist: Trading Card Game" published by Joyride Entertainment.

Sounds like a misprint or similar mistake by GQ. I've not met Mr. Ryan and he had no involvement in the design.
