Goals for the New Year

First off, what did I (and/or my kids) get for Christmas? Forbidden Island turned out to be pretty cool. We gave this to a cousin but my parents also gave it to me! Race For The Galaxy: The Brink Of War has yet to hit the table because I don't have the other expansions yet--turns out you need them all to make it work. This will be remedied during my upcoming birthday (3 weeks away). The girls got Carcassonne - Princess and Dragon Expansion which was fun but made them angry. Maybe that will pass. They also got a few Lego games. So what about 2011?

Kingdom of Solomon should be finished soon even though James Mathe of Minion Games has just launched a new board game rating and review site called Board Game Info. Pretty exciting stuff!

I am currently in the process of lining up files to send to the printer for two small self-published titles: Tiger Stripes (by my daughter) and Square Off. There's still quite a bit of work to do to make that happen.

Jolly Rogers is having trouble keeping down costs on the game I gave them, so I may have to do some re-engineering to make that one work out.

Two other big games have nearly reached the completed prototype stage. These will both be ready for Origins, along with the game that didn't find a home last year. I will almost certainly get at least one or two more ready during the course of the year.

And I may have a few surprises in the SJG direction. We will see . . . Best of luck in 2011!
