And though there will be a lot of scheduled events, our convention also focuses on open gaming. Therefore you are welcome to ask to join any game that isn't full and start any game as long as there is an available table. There will be signs that you can use when looking for more gamers to join a game you are setting up.

Richard and his wife Carolyn reside in Simpsonville, SC. They have three children and 4 grandchildren, with 1 more grandchild on the way.
I had my first game, Wyvern, published in 1994. That was a trading card game that got me the opportunity to work free lance with Wizard of the Coast where I designed Nitro and X-Men trading card games for them. I branched into regular card games in 1996 with Mystery Rummy 1 Jack the Ripper. That series is still on sale world wide. In 2013 I became a full time game designer and since then I have designed Baseball HIghlights 2045 and Diamonds. I am very excited to see my next design, Dragon Island, coming out at this years Gen Con with RnR Games.
