Speaker Series: David Dobson '91 | Novelist & Game designer
Dave is the author of Snood, Snoodoku, Snood Towers, and other computer games. Dave first published Snood in 1996, and it became one of the most popular shareware games of the early Internet. It also made cameo appearances on the Sopranos, the Daily Show, SNL, and in other media and films. His most recent project (other than writing) is Doctor Esker's Notebook, a puzzle card game series in the spirit of escape rooms.
A native of Ames, Iowa, Dave loves writing, reading, boardgames, computer games, improv comedy, pizza, barbarian movies, and the cheaper end of the Taco Bell menu. Also, his wife and kids. After completing a Ph.D. in Oceanography at the University of Michigan, Dave taught geology, environmental studies, and computer programming at Guilford College for 24 years. He is now a full-time author and game designer. He also does improv comedy every week at the Idiot Box in Greensboro, North Carolina. He’s also played the world’s largest tuba in concert with the Harvard Band. Not that that is relevant, but it’s still kinda cool.
