Everything I don’t know about Gaming is what makes it fun. That’s my approach with Designer Genes and really in many ways my approach in life. If I don’t know about something, I would much rather experience it firsthand on my own opposed to reading about it on the ‘net or having someone tell me… Continue reading Random thoughts working on Designer Genes
I’ve been quiet lately about my progress with Designer Genes mainly because I’ve been working on a lot of things at the same time and there just are not enough hours in the day to get everything sorted out and posted before I’m off to the next task or mission. But here is a brief… Continue reading Designer Genes making solid progress
I’ve been spending a lot of time digging into Designer Genes and the building blocks that makes the game tick.

It has proven over the past 30 years that genetics, DNA,… Continue reading Designer Genes : The Game – History from 1984 and it’s original inception
20+ years ago my Dad designed a board game. Technology being what it was back then made it a task that eventually he lost interest in. Starting his own business I’m sure played a part but recently we FOUND the original game in the garage while cleaning things out. One of my goals is to… Continue reading Designer Genes – The Game
