Man, keep blogging this. Best game journalism I’ve read in ages. This latest made me think of Huizigna. Neal Durando

What I particularly enjoy about his posts is the way he dives deeply into the game mechanical aspects as well as the experience; he represents the perfect blend of SF/F literature and gaming that is of particular interest to a game designer who occasionally dabbles in fiction.Vox Day

Jeffro’s posts have all been fantastic, BTW. That guy gets gaming, really gets it. I especially appreciated his descriptions of how hard and frustrating it can be. Finding opponents, making deals with friends, desperately trying to get that gaming experience we crave. Kull

        I commissioned a graphic artist friend of mine to do them. I just scanned the four classic b/w counter sheets and he did them in Photoshop with layers. My impression is that it isn’t so difficult if you know Photoshop. But there’s certainly a learning curve there– there are some deep features to that software that I find a little bewildering.

        One thing I found interesting is how many designs he did that were pretty close to the original colored counters. I guess certain vehicle names evoke a specific aesthetic– the Hotshot flames being one obvious example.
