Design Projects ... FREE Games

YOU ARE ON A HOBBY PAGE What's Here:   The Blurb  My Current Projects   Online Resources
Every gamer is a closet designer, that's a fact of life. I make no claims to be an exception. My interest in designing games goes back to a very early Zulu game based upon the movie by the same name (I think I was ten). I'm not in the big leagues (i.e., think I can do something good enough to publish), so I usually give away what I create.

Most of my designs are not hard core wargames, they are instead rather whimsical objects. If you are interested in one of these, click on a link. If you would like to playtest, I'll set up an account for you on the SECRET PLAYTEST PAGE.   Being the exceptionally dysfunctional fella that I am, I blow hot and cold on projects based upon real life factors; after all, I don't make a living at this and therefore am not on a deadline.  So expect a fairly mellow development cycle from me and very little in the way of demands.

Free Game - WEREWOLF

No, I didn't design this one, it's been in public domain for quite awhile.  However, I did design a card set and made it available for download as a PDF file.  Help yourself, it's over at the 50Megs site, on the boardgames page.
