I've dreamed up a lot of different things since I started running TCGs in January 2005. I know it seems like no one actually invented the basic things that are used in almost every TCG today, like using databases for members/games/cards, and card names displaying below the images of cards when you win games. Ideas do come from somewhere, and a lot of ideas came from my brain over the years.
Now, as to whether or not I "invented" something first... eh. I'm not going to claim that I was the FIRST PERSON EVERRR!!!!11two to come up with any particular thing. All I can assert is that I've always been trying lots of different things to make my TCGs easy and fun to play. I'll continue doing that, and when those things are inspired by ideas or fun activities I've encountered elsewhere, they'll be put in that list above. *points*
It's quite possible that people had the same ideas at the same time. I wholeheartedly believe that it's very possible (and likely) for multiple people to have the same good idea independently of each other. So if my credits are wrong or I need to add more information, feel free to contact me about it!
Fun fact: when it happens in science, it's called multiple discovery!
