I just saw this article on the website for the company I work for
http://www.stuff.co.nz/oddstuff/2587005/Board-game-lets-play...

I wonder
1. is the Randy Cox in the article our Randy Cox?
2. Is this game in the database?

I'm reposting the article below
A long-haul trucker from southeastern Idaho has created a new trucking-themed board game inspired by his hours on the road.

My Truckin' Luck was created with input from truckers, state troopers and mechanics nationwide, Randy Cox told the Idaho State Journal.

The game is named after a popular expression among drivers.

"The state police were amused, but didn't really offer anything that we could use," Cox said.

Cox, of Blackfoot, said players start in Washington state, then use dice to determine where they're headed. A chart on the board helps them determine the all-important issue of how much fuel they'll need.

"At first we had a map," Cox said. "We had all the interstates connecting at the right places, it was a monstrosity. We played for two hours and weren't even close to be finished."

The final version includes a log book, weigh stations, truck inspections and hazardous road conditions.

Cox said he invested US$45,000 in the game and printed 2,700 copies. The game sells for US$29.95 (NZ$47).

The truck driver said he was also considering other versions of the game, including one based on the History Channel's Ice Road Truckers and another that he said will be an Old West version.

"Every one of these games can be made into a learning game," Cox said. "By all indications, this is going to do very well for us."

Based on geographic location alone, I don't think it's the same Randy but I could be wrong.
