My middle daughter, who's 12, just gave me my birthday present. It's a board game called 'Promo'. You may not have heard of it and that's because it's unique. She made the whole thing herself and must have spent hours on it! It has a box, a board, playing pieces, cards (all hand made and hand written with her classic sense of humour) and rules (which she informs me, in good eurogames tradition, are badly written).

MY DAUGHTER IS AWESOME! (So are my others, but she's a bit more awesome just at this moment)

You need to put the game in the BGG database and get your daughter a designer page!

What a great gift.

My own birthday was a few week ago...

My daughter (4 years old) had a bidget of about 10$ to buy me a gift (from mommy). She bought me a gaming miniature, because "daddy loves miniatures".

How soon can a daughter start playing Twilight Imperium?

He's from Brantford people! That means he owns no technology, drives a pickup, and worships at the altar of Gretzky.

What a wonderful gift. I'm sure you'll treasure it for the rest of your life. I'd be honored if you would add it to a Geeklist I created some while back: Special Gifts - Handmade Games and Game Items.
