Reinventing The Wheel

Gah. Once again, I have an insight into something's flaws - and how to fix it... only to find that it's covered in the next chapter of the book. I guess it's good that I can anticipate those things, but still... it's frustrating.

I remember my friends and I making up a pen-and-paper roleplaying game when we were teenagers. It was a game where people from all over time and space came together in an arena... and then we found out it'd been done. And now it's been done again, in Heroscape, a nice little intro-to-wargaming game from Hasbro.

My grandfather tells a tale where he and a friend invented the turn signal a few years before it was patented. I wonder if this is the equivalent of the family curse...
