Facts about yourself

The idea for this game originated from a LEGO forum was first proposed by Abominable_FUZZ(I believe).

Here's how it works:

I'll post a fact about myself, and then the next person will do the same(about them), and so on. You can learn quite a lot about people by playing.
Also, you can comment on someone's fact above, but be sure to post a new fact as well(otherwise it would count as spam). And please, do not post secret question facts.

Have fun, and here's my fact:

I have a weakness for chocolate

May we know more about that? That sounds pretty interesting. How did you go about getting a patent?

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a girl.

I spent some time making and selling board games, though it was never my main business. Mostly using wooden pieces and cloth boards, really nice looking stuff. Well I came up with a game that was unique, and decided to patent it. Honestly from a purely dollars and cents perspective, it's not worth it unless it's a huge hit. But now I know what that process is like (hint: long and annoying), and it's neat to be able to say there is a patent in my name. I let the patent expire the first time it came up for renewal, because maintaining a patent is pretty expensive.

Is it available on the market??


I like to cook when I am in the mood, but hate to wash dishes.

It is, technically, though I have a bit of a problem with production. I decided to get all fancy a while back and ordered some wooden pieces with a colored coating, thinking that instead of marking the faces of the cubes with colored symbols, the cubes themselves could be colored and the symbols could all be black. The cubes came, they look very nice, but none of the ink I tried would adhere to the surface. So were I selling colored cubes, I'd be set. So should someone order a set now, I'm not sure what I would do about it. And since it's a side hobby at best, I don't have a lot of time to experiment to find a solution. I did try laser etching, which makes the symbols look great but turns the coating brown around the edges, which looks gross.
