About

Hello. My name is Randall Thompson and I am the designer of these games. I grew up in beautiful Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. Looking back on my childhood, I can remember inventing games.

At around 9 and 10 years of age, I used to sit down outside and show hockey cards to my beloved dog Spotty. I also made mini baseball games in the dirt with sticks and small pebbles. And best of all, I used to cut out those same hockey cards and play hockey at the kitchen table, with a silver ball for the puck: the foil from my mother's cigarette package.

Fast forward to the late 90's, I got an eye injury at work, which made me photo-phobic. I couldn't take bright lights and had to wear sunglasses all the time outside. I couldn't watch TV and couldn't work on computers. The kids and I seemed to go back in time, and we spent many evenings reading classics, listening to the radio and playing games. Much to my surprise, I began to invent games (again!).

As of 2017, I have designed seven games and authored two books. I had lots of help and backers through the years. I thank God for each game and book that we have created and produced.
