 +
 +
 +=====Own Creations=====
 +  * [[games:board:BattleBots]] Heavily inspired by Robo Rally.  Each player has a robot that is programmed with cards.  Whenever the robot is damaged, a card is removed.
 +  * [[games:board:ColosseumOffcuts]] How to play with the little square bits you would normally throw away from the [[http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/27746|Colosseum boardgame]].
 +  * Creative Writer- A monopoly type game about game design. (100% complete, but needs rewriting) \\ {{:gamesboard:creative_writer_board.doc|Board}}{{:gamesboard:creative_writer_cards.doc|Cards}}{{:gamesboard:creative_writer.doc|Rules}}
 +  * [[games:board:DungeonMaster]] Similar in concept to my card game, DungeonBuilder but trying to get as close as reasonably possible to the multiplayer version of the computer game Dungeon Keeper
 +  * [[games:board:Fiefdom]] Resource management
 +  * [[games:board:GoodvsBad]] (10%) A variable boardgame in somewhat similar style to monopoly.  Inspired by [[http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/152647|Tales of Thrilling Adventure]], but more abstract than pulp.
 +  * {{:gamesboard:thegreatmachine.zip|The Great Machine Beta}} A tile placement and rat feeding experiment game. (50% complete)
 +  * [[games:board:HellRaiser]] (40% complete) A board and card game similar to Betrayal at House on the Hill.
 +  * [[games:board:HordesoftheGods]] (10% complete) A boardgame in the style of a computer RTS (real time strategy) game using the rules for [[http://www.btinternet.com/~alan.catherine/wargames/strong.htm|Hordes of the Things]] as the base.
 +  * [[games:board:MechaBots]] The concept behind this game is the construction of warrior robots that fight each other.  But the mechanics of the construction are different.  Hexmap based.
 +  * [[games:board:MetaMorph]] (80% complete) A game of shapechanging mages in a fantasy setting
 +  * [[games:board:Morituri]] (10% done) Possibly this could be viewed as "Battle Bots 2" There's elements of Wings of fury in it now.  I like the concept of different decks for different people. Update - there's already a gladiator game with this name using this mechanic (great minds think alike!) - you can find it here- http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/36709/morituri-te-salutant \\ On a side note, apparently the phrase is apocryphal and was a-typical.
 +  * [[games:board:rollerBall]] A single route/multiple route game. I imagine a square board with multiple concentric rings.
 +  * [[games:board:StormTheCastle]] Players are groups of peasants bent on bringing down the mad scientist in his evil mansion.  Inspired by the World Works paper model of Shellendrak Manor.
 +  * [[games:board:ThiefGame]] (30%) Inspired by the various Thief games from Looking Glass Studios that have been part of my favourite computer games of all time.  I really should have started designing a boardgame about them well before now.
 +  * [[games:board:Trove]] Mentioned in passing as an amusing pun of Trovial Pursuit by a work colleague.  However - I think it has game potential.
 +  * [[games:board:Wedding]] What happens when you gather a bunch of geeks and their families, dress them up according to different time periods and perform a wedding? \\ Well, the obvious of course - an invasion by Cybermen who think there is time travel technology present. Prepare to be upgraded.
 +  * [[games:board:TowerDefense]] An attempt at turning a computer game genre into a board game
