Lessons Learned


You might notice a slight change in the appearance of this blog as well as a tweak to the domain name. I am now the proud owner of phantasiogames.net. I am also the foolish, bumbling loser of the domain name phantasiogames.com. :( That one is now owned by some dude in Japan. I have learned a few important lessons:

1. Auto-renew is your friend. Mine was turned off. Do not turn off auto-renew.

2. Moving and having a new baby at the same time will also turn off your brain for several months. Try to be a little more organized. HA HA HA HA HA! (That was a little inside joke for anyone who's ever moved and had a new baby in the same week before.)

3. When you discover something wrong with your blog, don't immediately jettison all the current settings without backing them up in a vain and fruitless effort to make the pain stop. Pain will just laugh at you.


4. Life will go on. Except for those people who type in the wrong address. They will be assaulted by Japanese techno-babble. Such as happened to my Mom (one of my four regular readers--wait, does my wife still read this?).

I have already endured changing my email address on everything (except for my domain registrar's increasingly urgent warnings), so why not change all my blog stuff too!? Let's make it a game. If you spot a link that sends you into Japan-induced confusion, drop me a line. If you find one, you are the winner. Thanks!

One more note. In the spirit of having my brain not quite firing on all cylinders and what with all the free time afforded by raising five children, I have set myself a colossal task: design and prototype three games in three weeks in preparation for GenCon! Game one is nearly ready to print . . . :)

  1. Welcome to my world of many years ago when you were only children... (hear me laugh) ha HA! I TOTALLY understand your brain not firing on all cylinders. God graced you with these precious souls so be there for them. Teach them to all play different loud instruments and encourage practice at least an hour a day. That will do WONDERS for your brain continuing to misfire.... but it will be a blast come marching season! May His love and grace continue to shower over you. May you have unending patience with your "blessings." Cindi Lindsey (Chris's mom) (I have no idea what these "select profile" things mean... I am NOT that computer savvy) Your turn to laugh! he HA!!!!!*****
