I'm an author,
designer, journalist and consultant on board, card and word games. 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
, was the first ever winner of Germany's prestigious
Game of the Year
award and is still published throughout the world.
In 2013 I was one of five inductees to the first UK Games Expo Hall of Fame for my books and writings, in 2016 I was awarded the
Dau Barcelona for 'a life dedicated to games', and in 2018 received
the Göttinger Spatz
for much the same thing. In 2016 I was appointed Visiting Professor in Game Design at the University of Suffolk
and in 2017 was awarded an Honorary Doctorate.
