I was thinking the other day as I was skimming through my game collection if there are any games about the cable industry.

There are games abouut farming, Trucking through space, and even being the CEO of a railroad company, I tried but couldn't find one on installing, selling or maintaining cable services.

So, what game or games come as close as possable to what you do for a living?

I'm blessed with a dream job: I have a game development consulting business, so I help people design, develop and produce games of all sorts.

I've worked on various tabletop and roleplaying games while at The Avalon Hill Game Company, PC and console games (Dark Reign 2, Full Spectrum Warrior) while at Pandemic Studios, and I've produced a number of cognitive training games for the US military.

My day job is computer game design. One of the games I worked on was Starfleet Command, and I was partially responsible for translating some of the SFB mechanics into gameplay. I also designed and scripted about half the missions in the game. We used to set up SFB scenarios to test some of the mission mechanics before implementing them.

I teach both academic and advanced math courses to high school students. Basically, I get to play with puzzles all day, pass on the magic of math to my students, and they pay me to do it.

This week, we proved why it isn't possible to take the square root of a negative number. The next class, I taught them how to take the square root of a negative number. God I love my job ^^

The best part of being both a games and a teacher is seeing ways to incorporate gaming into the classroom. For example, my grade 12 students learn how to play Werewolf, then we spend a class looking at the mathematics and probability behind the game.

Did I mention I also run the school's gaming club?

While fun can be had, I take the job seriously and approach it professionally. There are girls out there that need a stripper, and I must fill that demand. And above all entertain them for the length of time hired. 70% of the parties are great fun, 20% feel like work, 5% embarrassing, and another 5%.......

No, I'm not a oil magnate, I'm a board game publisher - trying to keep my pipeline of games full.

My work includes sales, marketing, graphic design, playtesting, project management, accounting, attending trade shows and demoing games. But I usually describe it as playing games for a living

Although, of course it's not much of a living yet, still early days so the money I make is invested back into the company.

Cheers,

Jack

But I was surprised at the lack of .mil representation on the list.

But also all the soldiers that are currently fighting are are probably off deployed and not near a computer.

So Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, help me out here.
