My name is Michael and I'm really excited to have joined this community! I have been designing games on and off since I was kid, but only in the last two years or so have I been designing with the goal of having my games published.

I currently have three separate games with working prototypes in development, but am focused on trying to get one, a two player card game which would be the simplest to manufacture, out of the gate first. I'm heavily considering going into business for myself and self-publishing, and have been reading blogs and listening to podcasts about the best ways to start your own business and be successful in this industry. I'm currently looking for proof readers and blind play testers.

Alright, a little bit about me: I'm a gamer! I know, right? I like all genres of board game, but I tend to lean towards dungeon crawlers and deck builders. I was born and raised in Southern California, but have been living in central Illinois for the last three years or so. I love basketball and am a huge Lakers/Clippers fan. I'm also really into music, particularly hip hop and classic rock. I double majored in college and got my undergraduate degree in Political Science and Philosophy. My three favorite board games of all time are probably: Descent 2E, Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game and Arkham Horror.

Anyway, I can't wait to interact with you all a bit more to get (and hopefully give!) some helpful advice and feedback!

I'm a fan of Arkham Horror, too. We're (I'm on a team of three, we're also planning on self-publishing) pulling some elements of AH into our game. :)
