Another great choice, and another person who should have been accorded this honor long ago!

Jennifer, just one question - will your Lakers win it again this year, or will the "Dream Team" from South Beach crush all before it (including my beloved but increasingly over-the-hill Celts)?

Have a great week in the spotlight!!!

One of the designers of Civilization as GOTW?

We're not worthy to ask questions!

Edit: but of course I'll ask one anyway.

Jennifer, you note the relative scarcity of African-American gamers - which I've certainly noticed as well. What do you attribute that to?

And congrats on being GOTW - I really enjoy your contributions, and I've checked out your column a few times and enjoy that, too.

In the confusion and the aftermath you are my signal fire. Hold me close, 'cause I need you to guide me to safety. The only resolution and the only joy is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes, I don't want to wait forever...

Grats, Ms. Meeples!

A few Dominion questions for you:
Favorite card?
Least favorite card?
Small expansions: Pro or Con?
If you could change one thing in Dominion (a rule, a card, etc.,) what would it be?

Hm. Excellent choice. Heretofore, all I've known about our new GotW is that she very nicely and promptly answered a question I GM'ed her about Advanced Civilization.

Congrats!!


Two quickies about my favorite game:

a) How did you become part of the design team for Advanced Civ?

2) If you had to change one thing about the finished product, what would it be?

And a bonus question:

c) When are you going to comne to WBC and school us all?

I had actually read some of your credentials when checking out the creators of Advanced Civilization, but I hadn't gotten anywhere close to the awe-inspiring list of honours that are on your proverbial regimental colours.

Enjoy your week!

Question: of the designers of Advanced Civilization, who had to go to the bathroom most during design meetings?

Congrats Jennifer! My questions for you:

There seems to be buzz around heavier games coming out at Essen. Have any of these caught your eye?

You've been involved in this hobby for a length of time and you still enjoy it... any thoughts about where it's come in the long view?

This is a great choice. Jennifer pointed me to an article she wrote on boardgamenews.com once after mentioning my WhatToPlay tool in it, and I've been reading it ever since. Congratulations, Jennifer!
