To who ever thinks this game is cursed at least leave your name beside your comment so that I can invite you to play when I'm finished developing the early rounds. I'm back and of single mind. We've been playing the game since 1997 when the Ruins was created and soon others will be too. If anyone out there would like to buy a handmade set, it'll cost you but will be guarenteed to be a Gridlock original and will help me with some of the start up cost.
