My old man designed a board game in the 80s involving genetics and humor. He even got to the point of meeting with people from either Parker Bros or Milton Bradley I don't remember which.. But his life/work/career sidetracked him.
I have all of his old stuff in a box at my house saving it from certain death in his garage. I've thought about it some, reworked the idea a little bit to catch it up to speed the 30 years its behind, showed it to him and he likes it.. Problem is once again.. life/work/etc. taking up too much time.
