Personal Note: Why did I feel it important that I make a web page dedicated to the memory of Franz-Benno Delonge and the games he designed? I have really only played and at the time of his death owned one of his games. I have been interested in a couple of his other games but I did not realize that he was the designer of them at the time.
I think the reason I made this page is his age and the young daughter he had. He was 50 when he died and that is really close to my current age. I believe his daughter was 7 at the time of his death and that is too young for a child to lose one of their parents. I know it happens everyday but that is just too young for somebody to die and for a child to lose a parent.
I have recently talked to others about the 50 hours of gaming that I want to do on my 50th Birthday (over an extended weekend) in 2 years. In the next 2 years I want to get as many of Benno Delonges games as I can so that on my 50th birthday I can play them during the 50 hours of gaming.
