About Me

My name is Paul Hoemke, and I am a 60+ retiree living in Minnesota.  I have lived in the same city all my life.  I have a wife and three grown kids.  Animal Game Annex is my hobby, and there's never enough time.

I started playing games when I was young, the popular store-bought games of the time, and traditional games, and early electronic games.  I still love playing games.

I started creating games when I was young, simple games like 'Tic-Tac-Tox' and 'Detection', and later complex games with unique game boards and special cards.

Then around ten years ago, I wrote 'Hearts Plus Three' which contained two new variations of Hearts (see below), and I started creating simple games in earnest.  I enjoyed the challenge of creating these games, and I felt that I did a decent job.

I hope I can inspire visitors to this website to grab a deck of playing cards, or some dice, or a checkerboard and checkers and play a few simple games.  Maybe some will even be inspired to create their own games.

This may be a hard sell in an electronics age, but I'll keep trying.

I also have a Cafepress shop called Good Nature.
