    Carla, I enjoy your tagline ‘Classic Mechanisms with a Twist of Weird’. A design thought I’ve been wrestling with recently: with mechanisms, it seems on one extreme there is inventing a completely new system (but running the risk of it not being interesting or balanced), and on the other extreme copying an existing tried and true system (but thus not standing out). What are your thoughts? How do you strike a balance and know how much of a ‘twist’ to include?

    (Also what inspired the name Weird Giraffe?)
