Could I get this pinned? Selfishly and purely for my own benefit.

shake


Edit: No, really, this is just for me. As a reminder for when I come in here.

That's why I wanted it pinned.... Keep bumping it though- it's achieving the same thing.

They don't let me design games at work.

But I do have internet access.

Because you're putting it off aren't you?

"Oh, speaking on forums and commenting on others' is much better than working on my own game!"

NO ITS NOT YOU LAZY SO-AND-SO!!

It's "research". Important part of the design work you know.

my boss (despite being a cool guy) would not like to see me printing, tear paper and roll dice as I need to finish the site and marketing plan.

I enjoy helping other people with their designs and participating in the community. And I can do it anywhere that I have Internet access--at work, in class, visiting my in-laws, etc. My designs get fleshed out in my head while driving or showering, and I can pick at writing the rules, creating the cards/components, or playtesting when I have more freetime at home.

No playtesters around for testing, and I have solo'd too many times.
I also like the research comment. Don't want to rework the same wheel someone else has fashioned so well already.

The BGG design forum inspires me! It helps me work on my designs more productively later!

Two reasons, 1) I'm not at home/where my designs are.
2) I have 10 minutes to spare. 10 minutes will not be enough time to get into "the zone" required to do game design. But it is enough time to read a few threads on a forum.
3) I'm not in the mode to design games and I hope reading BGG will change my mode. (This rarely works as I can easily slip into general Internet surfing.)

This is exactly what I would have written.

Matt,
You make the time to work on your game.
You can't get it out of your head.
How do you know your idea isn't the same as the game I finished yesterday after 2 years of work.
They will begin playtesting this weekend.
I live in the best of all possible worlds!
I have 2 teenage sons.
Alright, the eldest one turned 20 today.

The game is called "Advance and Conquer".

(evil mad scientist laughter in the background)
