author, journalist and consultant in the field of
tabletop games and puzzles. I also give talks and workshops on the games
history, theory and appreciation, and advise on the staging of games in
period films and TV drama. My best-known game,
Hare & Tortoise has sold over
3m units, appeared in a over a dozen languages, and in 1979
was the first winner of Germany's prestigious Game of the Year award.
In 2013 I was one of five inductees to the first
UK Games Expo Hall of Fame
for my books and writings and I
have recently been appointed Visiting Professor of Game Design
at the University of Suffolk.
