VIKTORY II: A Fast-Paced Game of Strategy and Conquest
This website provides quite an interesting description of the home-development of a board game. The game itself isn't one I'm interested in owning, but for the amount of effort the guy put into development, I really hope he is successful.
I do have to admit though.... the blatant infomercial quality of the last episode of The Dice Tower, promoting this game, was a bit of a turnoff. The podcast did prompt me to go to his website though, so perhaps it was successful on some level....
