A couple of Saturday mornings ago on my way to pick up coffee and some breakfast, I was ambushed from behind by an idea for a board game. Like, it really crept up on me. I was coping with a few niggling thoughts, randomly recalled a couple of board games I enjoyed when I was a young teenager, and so I started just, you know, kind of brainstorming ideas for tabletop and board games.
The next thing I knew, one of these ideas had me in a choke hold and would not let go.
“I just had a great idea for a board game!” I cheerfully announced to the girl behind the counter at the coffee shop.
“Uh huh,” she said. She blinked once at me, then deadpanned, “Large iced coffee?”
“Give me two.”
