The Business of Board Games

The creation of Wu Wei: Journey of the Changing Path and Gray Wolf Games, LLC has been an amazing experience but it also feels a bit like trying to get to the end of the original Oregon Trail video game. I’ve been updating backers on my successful Kickstarter…

Design Lock and Kickstarter Prep

Front and Back Covers... Done! The box cover has been in process for quite some time. I am pleased to say that it is finally fully realized. One of the last elements to join the front cover was the empress! As I got serious about designing Wu Wei I started to really...

Journey’s End… Kickstarter Beginning

The Rulebook Is Finally Done!!! Waves of relief continue to hit me this week as the rulebook for Wu Wei: Journey of the Changing Path comes into sharp focus. This year has been particularly challenging as the rules and components went through their final...

The Devil in the Details

Happy New Year and welcome to the post-truth era! It is more important than ever for folks to get together in person and remind each other what it means to interact and respect each other. I am not looking forward to the next four years but I am more resolved than...

BGG.CON 2016

Shakespearean Love Amidst The Carnage

The Ongoing Evolution of Wu Wei

The Latest and Greatest Back in August of 2016, I sent out 8 prototypes around the world to play testers. These brave souls agreed to read the rule book and attempt to play the game while I was not present to explain the finer points of the rules. This is typically...

The Genesis of a New Tabletop Project

Getting Started The minimum amount of time required to make a half-way decent board game seems to fall in the 2-3 years range. That's the equivalent of how long it would take to get your masters degree. And trust me when I tell you that the pay is about the same....

Zen and the Art of Board Game Design

Changing Perspectives The title of this post is a bit tongue-in-cheek because of the appropriation fad of making everything Zen or Tao. That being said I actually want to talk about the present moment. I've had the great privilege of being in the presence of a man...

The Student Has Become The Master

Balancing Act I wanted to give players the opportunity to explore being a master and a student at the same time. Whenever I talk about Kung Fu or Tai Chi with friends, they tend to ask me if I am teaching. Sometimes I am teaching class but most of the time I see...
