Does the kiddo hate me or what? I was trying to explain what I thought could be fixed about Lego Creator. He asked for a piece of paper and wrote me a note.

Our stuff doesn't arrive from Michigan until later this week, but +Meera Barry gave us some games in the interim. The kiddo was super excited to try this one. It's Lego Creator. And he likes it. But the whole time I'm thinking, "This should have been designed by an actual game designer." It has so many little flaws. Like rules for taking pieces from other players, but the models almost never require the same specific pieces, and even when they do there's enough that you don't actually have to steal for them, so the only reason you'd do it is to be a jerk. And an endgame where turn after turn everyone is rolling and rolling and failing to land on the rare space that will get them the last piece they need.
So I checked Boardgamegeek and it was designed by the same guy who created Kerplunk and Battling Tops :/
My assessment stands though. It has good aspects, but needs redesign.

Whole family playtest of Aloft, since we're no longer living across the country from each other. Seems like probably the first good board game I've designed. The strategy is a little beyond the kiddo. I might have to put 10+ on it.

Whenever I see a literary publishing project like this I want there to be a similar RPG publishing project. I wanted it when I saw Ley Lines too. But I know why it's unlikely. It's harder to bring RPG designs to completion than writing projects. They come apart on you, even for accomplished designers.

Our stuff doesn't arrive until the 5th, so we're playing King of the Dice on our massive gaming table.

Last packing for the move. Throwing away lots of accumulated clutter. Found a note for a RPG design concept entitled Heal that must have stowed away in my unconscious for a while before becoming #Traverser.

I really like the form factor of this Italian RPG - three panels of wide hardboard, like a GM screen. A good way to publish a shorter indie RPG for a decent MSRP. I think it was one of Matteo Nicoletti's purchases at Lucca. We talked about it one morning over breakfast.

Still packing for the move. Down to the wire. Still finding RPGs that didn't make it onto the shelving unit for the shelfie. Still haven't found my copy of Ysgarth.

If I was not in the throes of packing and moving a house across the country I'd be reading and thinking about this game.

My VHS player died years ago, before I ever got to use this. Now... it's trash.
