So big big thanks for that :)
Two clarifications. . .
1. BaffleBees was actually TANSTAAFL's idea, which was a hexagonal version of my old Quinto game. Credit to TANS, though, for realizing that hexes is a much better mechanism for that game. The name and theme are mine :)
2. My blog has been around since 1998. I oughta do something for its tenth birthday next March.
