Hello to all my fellow gamers and designers! My name is Chris Mancini, and here are a few facts about me and why I'm so happy to be a new member of BGDF:

1. I've been designing and inventing toys for over 15 years for companies like Mattel, Spin Master, Tomy and Jakks Pacific.

2. I'm a long-time gamer, but have recently focused on designing some of my own.

3. I prefer games on the lighter side, and my first few designs have been in this area. My goal is to create great gateways to bring new gamers into the hobby, as well as games which experienced gamers will think of as great palate cleansers between bouts of Twilight Imperium.

Lastly, I'm really looking forward to getting and contributing feedback on games under development so that we thinkers, dreamers and crafters can continue to grow the industry and hobby we love!

There's been a significant influx of "lighter" games, often called "filler games" on the market. There's a ready market and a steady appetite for them, as board games have become more challenging, and by extension, longer during the past two decades.

Welcome to BGDF and hope you find a number of folks who share your passion and will provide you with the feedback you need to pursue your dream.
