Throwback: Dream Doll Designer

Gardella and I played dolls together a lot as children, and we also had an obsession with creating a drawing families using genetics. Dream Doll Designer let us really have a good time by combining this creativity with our normal doll play. We loved this game – until we lost the CD-rom. Do you remember […]

Throwback: Pit

When I was a kid, and we’d have family gatherings, there would be a time, after I was in bed, when the adults would sit downstairs at the kitchen table doing odd things.

Throwback: Storybook Weaver

I barely remember playing today’s game, but I know I did all the time as a child. It’s such a throwback, I don’t expect any one of you to have used this great tool. However, without it, it’s hard to say if any of us would be the writers we are today. Thanks Storybook Weaver!

Throwback Thursday: Seaquest DSV

Back in the day, when I was about 12, I was a bowler. Actually, the family was in a parent/child bowling league. I was on a team with Dad, Gardella with mom, and Dawn was too little so she sat in the back with toys. I averaged about 145 and my high game was 220. […]

Why Not Wednesday: Write a Song

It you haven’t caught the themes lately, I’ve managed to write a number of posts that back-relate to Pi-Con. This may be the last one. For now. Dawn and I also seem to be on a music kick this week. Anyway, going to the songwriting workshop isn’t what inspired this post, but it did give […]
