“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take a while. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”

Cram, trying out your 1776 map in an open game...for some reason, my mind wasn't quite grasping things too clearly when we were playtesting it, but it does now and I really like the map. Good job (belatedly).

Hey mate, a Scotsman living in The Netherlands here. I was just wondering: how is it that you have been here for so long and are a premium member, but have played so few games?

I like your boards, but the new version of Europe 1560 is a bit of a downgrade. IMHO the previous version was better, easier on the eyes, etc..

Love classic risk map.I started thread http://www.wargear.net/forum/showthread/2032/New_board_or_scenario and emailed yertle/support about wanting to design similar map with different rules, however most think the best way forward is to create scenarios for current boards. My question is would you create scenario for wargear warfare with turn based initial setup. I realise we could only play realtime but I feel this would eliminate some of the luck and be more tactical. Would we have neutrals? obviously necessary in 2p but not so in 3p. Other rules could stay the same. Could we have a cards setup that reset after a while so it doesnt keep ncreasing. upto you. The turn based initial setup was key factor. Thanks Andros

And then you took away the City as a Capital too didn't you?

I never realized that Canada in the Fallout map contains all capital territories. Should that be in the description somewhere?

Legonate just lost a game on War because blue and black are indistinguishable on Japan due to the fuzzy layer. I think I mentioned this at the time you were working on this board oh so long ago. So... fix it or something http://www.wargear.net/games/view/24611
