GenCon 2014

It's finally here! City Hall will be available at GenCon. Not only that, it will be part of Tasty Minstrel's Play to Win program. Just playing it gets you a chance at taking it home for free. Just come by the TMG demo room 137 (circled in the picture).

While I'll be spending most of my time there, at 10am on Friday, I will be giving a seminar on Cognitive Biases in Players and How to Leverage Them (SEM1454346) in the Westin's Chambers room.

If you'd like to get together for a game at the convention, send me a messge on Twitter (@vhgames) or email me (

I love economic games.

How's that for a mission statement?

I like other types of games as well, but I love economic games. And so I design economic games. Games which exploit market principles to create interesting decisions. Games where there is no right answer to the question "is this good?" Games where you are in control. Games where you are the visible hand of the market.
