'As my number of Dual Direction Variants has grown'

Is it your goal to invent as many CVs as possible?  While I have liked
occasional rare Gilman game, it is like trying to find diamond in coal
pile.  Wouldn't you do better to concentrate more on quality of fewer
games rather than as many new piece types and games accomodating them as
possible?
