With apologies to the Good Doctor...

Higgledy piggledy
Reiner Knizia,
Board game designer and
Weaver of dreams,

Often incorporates
Quite analytical
Counterintuitive
Scoring regimes.



...and if you found that entertaining then there is more explanation on my blog: http://www.brettspiel.co.uk/2009/07/higgledy-piggledy-reiner...

The trick is coming up with names that fit the meter of the poem... any ideas?

poor Martin Wallace, his
games are sublime, yet he's
still in arrears.

Alas, since the States are so
uber-litigeous
he will be sued 'till Steam
pours from his ears!

young Uwe Rosenberg
first made his name with his
game about beans.

Waited a decade, but still
agricultural
topped Puerto Rico and
now reigns supreme!

Hey Larry! Bravo on your poetic output!

Anyway, turns out Rick Holzgrafe beat me to the punch on this one, over two years ago...

Which just goes to show that there's nothing new under the sun!
