I'm Andrew Tullsen. I run a game company which sells game parts, game parts, and prints everything from print and play games to fully printed boxed sets. I republished 3 old wargames: BIO
I have been playing games all my life. In my early childhood, I played the standard fare: Tic-Tac-Toe, Jenga, Uno, Monopoly, Battleship, Chess, Backgammon, Clue, Pictionary. I started playing “wargames” – Stratego and Risk as well. Later, I ordered Axis and Allies, at the recommendation of some friends. This was my introduction to the entire subculture of gaming. Not having a lot of spending money, I started looking into “free games”, and printed out Battle for Moscow (first edition)
and First Blood: The Guadalcanal Campaign
, which I found online.
Then, I discovered BGG. I had been on the site before, as I was in this variant frenzy for Axis and Allies. I probably had collected a hundred of variants and new rules for Axis and Allies. I even was devising some myself. I joined BGG, purely to download some higher resolution pictures of some of the Axis and Allies games. (You could only see the higher resolution images after logging in) About that time as well, I purchased my own computer and received a free printer with it. If I only knew what that printer would do to me…
I jumped headfirst into BGG, it was my “facebook” for gaming, and I spent a lot of time there, finding hundreds of more free games I could print out. My tiny inkjet printer quickly became my new friend to print these new games. Soon after I was uploading pictures of my creations and soon people were asking me for copies for themselves.
I started Print & Play Productions officially in June of ’09, from a page on BoardGameGeek.com . I got my own website more than 3 years later.
I am currently living in Portland, Oregon. I go to as many game conventions as I can afford to go. I am a Christian and strive to love the Lord with all my heart. I go to church at First OPC and Evergreen Bible Church. I game with friends up in Vancouver, WA and my brothers at home, and get together with local designers to playtest designs.
I'm always happy to answer any questions you have, whether they are about print and play stuff or anything else.
