Sean developed Frog Pond when he was nine years old.
It's original conception took place on an array of dice which you
slid. The Frog Pond theme (it seemed a natural fit) is mainly due to
his beloved Auntie Gail who is an avid Anuraphile (frog-lover).
After Gail started keeping frogs as pets 90% of her birthday, Christmas and
special occasion presents are frog themed. Her house is a shrine to
frog-dom. Last Christmas one of the 15 frog things we gave her was
Lily Pad placemats.
Sean has been "designing" games since before he
could write, drawing pictures on paper and cut-out cards.
these were just armies or characters with stats and abilities that would
fight each other. And about twice a week I would hear "Dad, I
made up a new Magic card."
For Christmas 2001 one of his "stockings
stuffers" was a gift certificate offering technical help and
assistance to help produce any game which he thought was truly
playable. When he came up with the ideas for what is now Frog Pond,
it seemed like a good time to cash in those certificates.
Sean is in the 4th Grade a St. James Elementary School in
Red Bank, NJ, USA.
In the Frog Pond...No one can
hear you Croak!
