He would go on to become the café's lead game teacher and library curator, a position he held until its closure in 2016. In the years since, Kurt has spent time as a playtester, rulebook editor, and game designer. Kurt's favourite games tend to be simple abstract strategy, elaborate Euro puzzlers, and narrative RPGs.
