Description Edit | History

I spent the majority of my professional career working in various executive positions within the AT&T Advertising & Publishing line of business, retiring as an Executive Director - Information Technology after 32 years of service. Since retirement, I have been designing games full time through my company King Richard LLC.

I was active in various forms of design even during my career with AT&T. Leaning strongly on my Fine Arts degree, in 1981 I designed the uniform for the Chicago White Sox that they wore from 1982 - 1986 and are wearing it again in 2013 as their special Sunday home game uniform. During the mid 1980s though 1992 I wrote and published a few Role-playing scenarios for Call of Cthulhu with Chaosium and Different Worlds magazine. Additionally, during this time period I worked on several computer game designs with Interstel and Super Nova Creations, including the games Scavengers of the Mutant World and Star Legions.

In 1987, I designed the original Arkham Horror board game which was published by Chaosium and went on to win the the Origins HG Wells Best Science Fiction Board Game Award in 1988. In 2005 I teamed up with Kevin Wilson to redesign the Fantasy Flight Games publication of Arkham Horror and since retiring from AT&T have been fortunate enough to publish many adventure and story oriented games for fans of this genre.

My simple motto of game design is that playing the game should be fun. I enjoy playing a wide variety of games and especially enjoy opportunities to play my designs with those of you that also enjoy them at conventions - hopefully we will be able to play a game together some day.

Thanks for your interest - Richard
