What do you bring to the gaming table?

Although we’re not talking about actual board game tables here, this one from Rathskellers is lovely

I’m not talking about a literal gaming table. Specifically, what skills, life experiences, or points of view do you have that you want to share with the world that you can do better than anyone else? Here’s what I came up with:

  • Problem solving and system design: I have over 20 years of software developer experience that gives me the engineer’s perspective on board game design — how can I accomplish the design with the simplest, most elegant, and efficient design?
  • Graphic design: I have over 10 years experience in graphic design as a side gig. That, along with software user interface design, helps me create components that are clear and beautiful.
  • Storytelling: Although I didn’t follow through, I briefly had a creative writing minor in University. Dungeon-mastering, writing my own fiction, and being a voracious reader give me a wide gamut of ideas, themes, and experiences to share.

My relatively new interest in designing board games is partly from a realization that it combines so many things I’m interested in. What are you bringing to the table? What do you need to tell the world?
