If you're going to say Liar's Dice was invented in 1974, then you can't give Richard Borg credit for it. The parlor game Liar's Dice was likely invented long before 1974, but that's the date in boardgamegeek because that's the earliest published set that anyone's submitted. Borg's version was published in the early 1990's.

Just ran across apples to apples and your 100. Nice to be in the mix with Cosmic and Dune. We are releasing a new CE boardgame in 2008 with Fantasy Flight games. You can also find a collection of Cosmic and Dune players hanging out at Cosmic Encounter Online. They are playing Dune remotely via the web. :) Peter Olotka
