Published games[edit]

  • Flibbix (2008): Flibbix is a build-a-board game set in which players can build their own board game using magnetic game board tiles, choose their own rules on a "Make your own Rules" sheet, and then play. Unlike many board games, the Flibbix game board and rules are not fixed. Every time the game is played, the game board and rules are different, so the game will play differently. Also unlike many board games, the game board and rules are dynamic and can be changed during the game. Changes are caused by players landing on special tiles, or drawing special cards, which allow them to move tiles, flip them over, or change rules on the rule sheet.
  • Flibbix Puzzler (2008): Flibbix Puzzler is an iPhone optimized web game in which players try to clear a screen of squares by selecting like-colored groups of squares and then clicking again to remove the group. The game is titled similarly to the Flibbix Board Game even though game play is significantly different, because game squares contain artwork based on the board game's illustrations.[1]
