Here, I stole this from a guy that writes hardware drivers for ten

No crown, please -- I'm only one among many. There are plenty of Klingon-speaking language geeks, and I was just at a conference last week with a dozen others. So far as I know, none besides me own Icehouse sets, but after I bought an original Martian Chess Set five years ago I managed to teach three of them to play Homeworlds while speaking only Klingon. I was inspired by the fact that the available vocabulary was a good match for the game.

I do need to redo the Klingon version to fit Binary Homeworlds.
