I mentioned I was too busy to try this on your blog, but I have also already done this a couple of times. I did an abstracted war game semi-based on Risk when I was in High School (heavily influenced by Kings & Things, I recall), and I also designed a card game about political primary races that I got into an ownership dispute with a co-designer and has therefore never seen the light of day. I agree with you that there is a lot for RPG designers to learn from these other types of games.

Hey, here's a rules question:  Can we use older, uncompleted board game designs as a base?

I wrote this game about the slave trade in High School that I've always wanted to come back to.

Neat idea! I was thinking about financing my roleplaying hobby by writing bestselling novels and designing bestselling German board games anyway. ;-)

So what qualifies you as an RPG designer? Writing up funky ideas in Indie Game Design? Writing a 24h RPG? Playtesting your own RPG? Having a playtest version for third people to test? Spending money on publishing preparation?

Yes. Or having an rpg in mind where you could, if pressed, do any one or more of those things.

Super easy.
