Well, Sam, I don't intend usually for my games to be played. I do for the sake of fun, not merely having fun in the process. I especially like having restrictions, such as a certain amount of spaces, as you can see from my 47-space games. When I create a game, I often create the board first. To me, the board is one of the most important catalysts for game ideas. For example, I have created a Jang Gi variant just from pondering upon a Fanorona board! Creating good games is merely a side effect to me, though I strive for playability.
