GAME DEVELOPMENT

In many ways more appealing to me than game design is game development. I love finding the best parts of a game prototype and helping to make them shine. I attend the local game designer's group, Grand Rapids Unpublished Boardgame Society (GRUBS) regularly, often without one of my own designs in tow.

I really enjoy playtesting other designers' games, I look forward to Unpub when I can attend and will be starting to attend Protospiel more often. Click here for quotes from designers about playtesting I've done for a few more involved projects.

Finally, I am a judge in several annual design contests, these are listed below and include any of my additional roles.
