I am a retiree living in Minnesota who writes articles about simple games in my spare time.

Around ten years ago, I wrote the article "Hearts Times Three" which contained the rules for the card game Hearts plus two variations.

It made me think about the traditional card and dice games I played as a child and young adult, games such as Hearts, Up and Down, Yacht, and Shut the Box. It also brought to mind several simple games I had developed years earlier.

So I decided to develop new simple games using standard cards and dice. I added a checkerboard and checkers to provide a simple board and markers for board games.

And I decided to write articles pertaining to simple games. I ended up writing articles that provide the rules for playing popular, and obscure, and new simple games, that provide variations of games, that talk about game design, that suggest modifications of game equipment, and that talk about playing games.

I hope that people find my articles interesting and useful.
