How I became a BGG:
I started my gaming career as a Magic: The Gathering player. After a long spell with various CCG's I gave up the habit to pursue board games. Like many, Settlers of Catan was the first game that got me excited about our hobby. I've played everything from Tic-Tac-Toe to multi-day wargames but I always find myself coming back to the "quick and easy" stuff. I still like occasional longer game with lots of strategy, tactics and planning, but I'd usually rather play something that takes little to set up and plays quickly with 3 or more players. I love a good dose of randomness but I need at least some strategy to think about. I find that I'm better at "tactical" games over "strategy" games... my friends, they're all better than me at "strategy" games.

Game Design:
I started seriously designing games in the late nineties. I worked a summer with US Playing cards on the X-Files CCG and was introduced to some amazing people in the industry. I had a game idea at the time, and drew it on the back of some business cards. I haven't stopped designing since. I've designed over 100 games, most of which didn't make it past a few play tests. I have quite a few that I want to share with the world, but after repeated denials from publishers, I decided to start making some of them Print and Play. Doubloons! was my first such game and was picked up by Gamewright and published as Scallywags. I enjoy working on projects that fall otuside the realm of what traditional publishers are looking for and I've begun self-publishing those on thegamecrafter.com. For the past few years I've been sharing my design process with 100% transparency on my website: cheveedodd.com

Life:
I have two beautiful little girls that inspire my existence. I work as a SysAdmin and IT tech for the State Board of Education. I work for Portal Games as our US Representative. When not gaming, designing new games, or working on art, I like to spend time with my family, build things out of wood, ride my motorcycle, fish, hunt, camp, hike and get in some time with various video games.
