Hi - this is Matthew O'Malley, game designer/receptionist/CEO/janitor/publisher/Black Oak Games.

I've been designing board games on and off for years now, mostly for my own edification and the torture of my friends. In the spring of 2012 I released my first game, Celtic Knots, for mobile devices (should I be hanging my head?). But that's not why I'm here.

I've designed a board game based on Celtic knots which grew out of all the work I did on the mobile game. In fact, I've apparently designed a "game system", using custom dice and a few boards (though the boards aren't absolutely necessary). It turns out there are a bunch of games to play with these Celtic knot dice, and they're very easy on the eyes.

I'm hoping to get some feedback on the rules now, and I've been doing a bunch of playtesting locally, but requiring the custom dice makes it hard to spread the word. It even makes it hard to really grasp the rules if you don't have the dice.

Anyway, I'll continue that conversation in the forums (look for "Knot Dice"). Hope to see you there!
