Does the rulebook from Escape from the Evil Garden list a designer? I am 99% sure my friend designed it and she had a lot of restrictions on how it could work.

It does list three and one is a she.

That’s a very excellent point to make, too- games like this tend to be made under severe restrictions and limitations, and they most likely have to be signed off on by people who have no idea about board game design. But like I said, I could detect a hint of awareness in there.

Moveable Type, yes- thanks for pointing that out Wade!

I actually think I might like that pirate game.

Two more things:

I just taught the 8 year old "brobdingnagian" tonight; it shows up in A Series of Unfortunate Events (Book 3); not a word you see often.

Is this the game that has the spinner with 18 spaces? Spinners are so underappreciated -- you can really set up differential probabilities of events that way, especially with two spinners. Just need a nice spinner (preferably metal). The more I think about it, the more disappointing it is that they are so rare

She was an editor there at the time and they knew she played games so she got tasked on a game. All I remember is that she was working on a Gorey board game (I assume this was it). We got a bunch of cool Gorey stuff from her when our daughter was born.
