My inner geek is disinterested

Despite having an engineering degree, a Master's degree in software development, a strong math background, and 20+ years of programming experience the "typical" logic games bore me. Why and how can I improve? [more inside]

It's just a step to the left...

Can you identify this not-famous game? Filter: Looking for an online game I lost. A very simplistic, grid-based drag-and-line-up same-colored squares game (Flash). I want to locate the game and hopefully download it for offline play. But first I need to find it! [more inside]

Recording of girl who designed a video game?

I remember seeing a reference somewhere on mefi float by that I can't find anymore. There was a young girl (8-13?) who had hand-written a design for a video game and someone interviewed her about it, possibly her father. She went into great detail in an audio-only recording about this Portal-like game she made, and somewhere there was a link to the audio and the hand drawn pictures of several horizontally laid out levels. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Did this computer game about evolution actually exist?

Sometime in the late '80s or early '90s I read, in a computer magazine, a review of a game where you had to create a creature by manipulating "genes" for various traits then release it into a wireframe ecosystem. Did this game ever actually exist? Anyone heard of it? [more inside]

Online CCG?

Are there any good collectible card games out there? I'd prefer it to be online, though it doesn't have to be. I'd prefer it to be free, and I can't really accept otherwise. I'd also prefer it to be browser based or Linux-friendly, but it's fine if it is Windows only. Is there anything out there? I came across Ederon, but the collectible part seems to be subdued, though I only played three matches so maybe I'm wrong. Tyrant on Kongregate pretty much fits the bill, but its mechanics are a bit too simple I suppose.

I see your shotgun and I raise you a zombie creeper.

The girlfriend and I are going to Hawaii in a few weeks and have a 10 hour flight. I'm looking for a fun, nerdy card game to bring with us to kill some of that time, something that would be fun for two people. We both like the Fluxx variants, but they tend to spread out which seems inconvenient for the plane. Also probably things that require shouting or slapping (a la Spoons) would be bad. Bonus points if it's readily available at The Compleat Strategist in NYC.
