That's...That's a lot of really bad art! In fact, it's almost...almost...MEME-WORTHY. Boldface what you've played. Italicize what you own. And no, I'm NOT taking part, because I haven't played some of 'em, and it's kinda embarassing which ones they are.

Grin.

A shorter list would be games of mine that I've WON.

Anyhoo, I'm sure I'm missing stuff. But it's a start...

Wait. Wait a sec!

That's SEVENTY-NINE or so games (counting all Apples to Apples releases as one - Eighty-four games, plus, if you take Apples to Apples in production now as separate releases. Probably closer to nintey games, including all past Apples to Apples editions. I did a lot of work on those other than the illustrations (lots of the flavor text, for example) But it still seems like it should just be one entry).

Blink.

Blink.

Good lord. When the hell did I illustrate SEVENTY-NINE GAMES???

EDIT: Eighty-five(ish). I forgot about Illuminati New Word Order and INWO: Assassins Though I only had a part-hand in those, I think I did forty or fifty cards all told, there...AND I totally forgot about Chez Greek. Also added - Button Men: Dork Victory, and two Dragon Magazine games.

Any Wikipedia editors out there wanna add these to my Wikipedia page?

Wiki doesn't like it when you add to your own page.If anyone else wants to do it, that'd be grand...

(No, Lori, don't worry, grin. That's NOT a hint. There are some Wiki-editors on this list...)

I'm aware of both a. that one cannot edit one's own Wiki page and b. that you weren't hinting to me. In fact, I was hinting to your fans who are Wiki editors that one of them take up the task.

You're correct in assuming that I am busy.

My bad for the cut and paste. I didn;t spot Munchkin Booty hidden amongst that lot.

No, I don't own it and haven't played it. I have all the Munchkin sets to date so just cut and paste the lot.

Sorry :/

I'm not sure the minigames from the comics count, but I think the two games I illustrated for Dragon prolly should make the list...

Gamemastering Secrets, no matter how much I loved that, was just some reprinted Dork Towers, if I remember correctly...

That's true, but, though I've long promised it to Steve, and much that I loved me some Toon (he said, bowing before the master), as you say, there's no actual new art in that. So I shouldn't list it seperately...

Hm, so what's that bring you to?

- eighty-odd games (some more odd than others)
- A comic book that's been around for damn near ten years
- Uncountable newspaper editorial comics
- At least three different comic strip series at one point or another (Dork Tower, Wild Life, Murphy's Rules, and I'm sure I've forgotten or don't know about others)
- other random stuff, like the stuff you've done for the Mallards

Basically, after publishing enough stuff to sink a small battleship, one'd think they'd let you retire-- or at LEAST maybe relax a bit...

They must need to sink a bigger battleship...

John, I'm hijacking this commenting for help in a holy quest.

As you know, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson are working on 2 films, following up the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy.

The first is the Hobbit.
The second bridges the gap between the Hobbit and LOTR.

Guillermo del Toro has said there isn't a name yet, but Hobbit 2: Electric Boogaloo has been discarded.

I made this to persuade him to change his mind.

I hope you'll use your influence to spread the word!

I may be going mad, but wasn't there a Munchkin Monster Manual for Munchkin D20? Or do you regard that as an integral part of Munchkin D20?

I won't do the meme; would be too embarrassed at my total lack of munchkin expansions (we have all the different main games so far, but only Munchkin II and Blender in the expansions...).

I almost called you on Chez Guevarra before remembering that's another Greg Hyland work - does that mean that (as far as SJ Games goes) Greg is "The person who illustrates card games when John isn't available"? ;^)

But perhaps more interesting: which are my favorites?

Out of the list I played: the Chez games and Mag*Blast (partially because they are decent two player games).

Least favorite (doesn't mean I hate them!): Dork Tower boardgame and Munchkin. I love the Munchkin cards for the humor, but I'm less fond of the game itself.
