a new board game for 2 - 5 players
Joel wrote a choose-your-path book in the style of Steve Jackson's Fighting Fantasy series at the age of 15, and had it successfully rejected by Penguin Books. At 19, he self-published a text adventure game called The Multi-Dimensional Thief, featuring a working portable hole.
Later, Joel was one of the founders of Wildfire Studios, designing a number of popular pinball titles including Balls of Steel (featuring Duke Nukem). In 2005, Wildfire released the successful casual game Tumblebugs, followed by Jungo, and Tumblebugs 2.
Joel began work on Unfair in 2011. This is his first board game, but not his first rodeo.
