#BoardGamersAsk - Ben Rosset - Designer of Mars Needs Mechanics and Brew Crafters

We are just finding our feet with #BoardGamersAsk so it seems sensible to run before we can walk! That's right we are doing a double feature in week one. From now on we will be limiting ourselves to a maximum of one interviewee per week... This week however is different! Thanks for your questions to Erik (he is looking them over as you read), we will post the interview soon. Now you get to ask questions of Ben as well.

Here is what you need to know about Ben Rosset

Ben has been designing board and card games for about 5 years. His first published game, Mars Needs Mechanics, was successfully funded on Kickstarter in October 2012 and is now available online and in local game stores. His second game, Brew Crafters, about running a craft brewery and brewing beer, is currently on Kickstarter and has already met over 200% of its funding goal. The campaign runs until November 24th.
Ben has an economics background and currently works full time as a web design project manager. His passion is Eurogaming, but he also enjoys strategic card games and deduction games. He lives in Washington, DC. He says the best thing about being a game designer is interacting with the amazing community of designers, testers, gamers and publishers that he has come to know. 

You may ask - how does #BoardGamersAsk work?
It's simple, we will announce a interviewee (Ben). Once we have posted your guest, you have 24hrs to ask him a question using hash-tag #BoardGamersAsk on twitter. To see what everyone else is asking just search for the same hashtag! After the question time is closed, we will send the best ones to the Interviewee. When we get the answers back we will post the interview, that you could be part of, on this site!

Your clue to the next guest is: "He is a ludological genius, who you would want on your bridge."
