I'm a game designer and freelance journalist and occasional hiker and all-around-busy family guy.
I've written for newspapers and local magazines, including the Valley News, our fine local paper, as well as The Burlington Free Press, Vermont's largest daily; my quads are still burning from coming down the steep side of Mt. Washington; Penny Press, the first board game I co-designed, is in the wild; and my 14-year-old son keeps putting the 'B' in busy.
It's a pretty good life so far. For blow-by-blow updates, hop on the Twitter train at #mattgowrite.
We're heading to the very first PAX Unplugged over the weekend of Nov. 17-19 to demo and playtest our newest game, Westmonster Kennel Club. We took it to Boston FIG last year, and it's come a long way since then. Here's a rough video preview we used to submit our game for BFIG, though it's changed a bunch since then. Shoot me a message if you have any questions, and I hope to see folks at PAX!
I've been writing a column called 'Role Selection' for the Boston-based games website The Cardboard Republic. I'm really enjoying chatting with folks working and playing in the board game world. (Note: I'm on hiatus as I follow my wife around the world on her Fulbright fellowship)
And many of you know that PENNY PRESS, the board game another fellow and I designed, won Cards Against Humanity's 2013 Tabletop Deathmatch. We had an incredibly successful campaign on Kickstarter, and the final product is available on Amazon and other retail outlets.
Here's one of the many kind reviews (you can see more at our page on Boardgamegeek):
And finally, I've got an ebooks -- FINDING FUNBOY -- available for Amazon's Kindle. It's in the lending library, so if you're a Prime member, go check it out. Like, for free.
