Game Design Consulting & Testing
I will read over your rules, game design document, or whatever material you would like me to read, and provide commentary on the mechanics, graphic design, clarity, balance, and "fun factor".
I do board games, card games, role playing games, and video games.
I also have a bi-weekly board game design group that I can bring your game to and get feedback on a blind playtest. You will have to provide the materials for this request, but we love doing it!
Training & Qualifications
I am a hardcore gamer and hobbyist game designer. I have created many games, have an active game prototyping group, and work with a few friends through our gaming company (OPifex Entertainment, LLC).
Availability & Preferences
Weeknights and most weekends.

About Ryan Wilson
Ryan is a super-nerd. All of his hobbies revolve around gaming, and he loves the steampunk, fantasy, and cybertech genres the most. He'll geek out about pretty much everything he can get his hands on;... the further it is from reality, the better. Of course, he is a down-to-earth guy when he needs to be. His software job at GE Aviation has him programming avionics simulations (airplanes & helicopters), managing a team of developers, and working on R&D projects. He works hard every day to ensure that when you're thousands of feet in the air, nothing blows up. When out of the office, Ryan enjoys playing and designing board games, card games, video games, and tabletop role-playing games (RPGs). He has designed dozens of games (though none actually produced as-of-yet), and is currently working to create his first RPG book, "Hostargo". If you're interested in Ryan's game design ramblings, check out his blog: http://mysteriouslever.blogspot.com/ His beautiful wife Gabby came up with the rocking blog name. Ryan is terrible at naming things. At this point, if you're still reading, you must be deeply interested in Ryan's life story. And, because Simbi is telling me I need 1400 characters, I suppose this is the last sprint. Ryan is Canadian, but has lived in the US since he was six years old. He grew up in Louisiana, then moved out to Connecticut for a couple of years before landing in Michigan (his dad got moved around for work a bunch). He went to school in the UP of Michigan, at Michigan Technological University, and then moved to Grand Rapids where he lives happily with his wife Gabby.show moreOpen to other proposals
