Philip Reed (CEO, Steve Jackson Games) is constantly smashing his face against deadlines, which wouldn’t be such a terrible thing if deadlines weren’t quite so sharp and painful. With credits throughout the game industry as an author, artist, layout monkey, editor, publisher, designer, and playtester, Phil definitely sunk more points into skills than common sense. Phil writes about toys at his blog and annoys as many people as possible through Twitter. Phil will be running demos of Steve Jackson Games’ reprised version of The Fantasy Trip, now on Kickstarter:

Friday, October 5th, 2:00 pm
Saturday, October 6th, 2:00 pm
