Theatre Games ... a book ... ???

So I've been collecting and using theatre games since I started training as an Undergrad at New Paltz (that's 13+years ago ... oiy me). They're in a myriad of different notebooks and folders and such ... and when ever I've got a show I'm working on, or a class I'm teaching - though I do plan out what games I intend on using - I like to have them on hand so I can add in something or change my plans as needs be. So ... I thought I'd type them all up and have them in one place. This then makes me think ... while I know there are loads of theatre game books and websites etc. out there already ... could there be room for one more? We'll see I suppose. Seeing as I planned on typing it up for myself anyway, it's not like I'm taking on work for no reason, should it benefit me as an "author" too - sweet! I take no credit for creating the games, only that I've used them and they work. Ok ... there you have it.
