About me: Hi, I am Paul D Miller, inventor of a new game called Commander-In-Chief. I am a hard working 30 something Mechanical Engineer who grew up in a small town in Michigan and who now lives with Mickey Mouse in Florida. I am an automotive engineer by education but an entrepreneur at heart. My creation originated back in 1999 as an advanced version of Chess with a military theme. It has evolved into a combination of Chess & Checkers with a military theme that now incorporates standalone toys and many more games than the original concept entailed. Other games included in this design are Chess & Checkers plus Tic-Tac-Toe and The Triangle Puzzle Game. Also available for play: 30 Military Toys and 30 Stackable Spinning Tops.
What I have tried to do with my game is combine the best elements of two Classics, Chess and Checkers, and modernize their play with some additional features and benefits, while simultaneously eliminating their most frequently cited shortcomings.
While you can't please everyone, I believe that the additional features I have added to this checkerboard game (a handicapping element to even the playing field between players of various skill levels, Going Over pieces, Going Under pieces, a military theme, Blocking pieces, piece Enhancement options for more come from behind victories, multiple "Object of the Game" options including short games, "Team Game Play" options for one-on-one or multiple player variants of the game, a terrain element with Air, Land and Sea areas of the board, "Advanced Game Play" options that allow players to independently increase the strength of individual pieces within their Armed Forces, realistic looking miniatures that transverse the board in a logical way and more) will create an experience for gamers they will enjoy and want to play repeatedly.
I hope you agree. Give it a try and see for yourself.
My collections: Commander-In-Chief's collections are centered around the next big "Must Have It" game that is hitting the toy market called Commander-In-Chief and related products. CinC is a 3-In-1 game that includes the two most popular board games of all time, Chess & Checkers plus Tic-Tac-Toe and The Triangle Puzzle Game. It is the game of the "Y" and is becoming a game of the military. Commander-In-Chief is being sold through multiple military channels as a game of our military and $1 is donated for every game sold to the Armed Services YMCA to Support Our Troops.
My interests: As the inventor of a new product, Commander-In-Chief, free time seems to be limited but I have many interests. The two things in this world that I am most passoniate about are my family and my game. Beyond these two items, I am interested in other types of board games and the gaming community in general, traveling, reading, biking, running, tennis, scuba diving, University of Michigan football (my alma mater), weight lifting and playing the piano.
