Join us for CreativeMornings/Omaha featuring Marcus Ross!

Everyone is creative. Everyone is welcome.

All CreativeMorning events are free.

Registration starts April 9 > https://creativemornings.com/talks/marcus-ross

A software developer by day, Marcus Ross spends his spare evenings brainstorming, creating and marketing board and tabletop games for his Omaha-based design company, Water Bear Games. Award-winning titles, developed with cousin Cara Ryan, include Discount Salmon and BEEEEES!. The company’s latest offering, Letter GO!, will be releasing very soon.

Marcus’s interest began as a child obsessed with Monopoly and ballooned from there to include a wide range of games and a vast knowledge of all things table-top. In addition to holding down his day job and operating Water Bear Games, Marcus volunteers for the nonprofit arm of Spielbound, serving as the game librarian and a key member of the design club, Spielmasons.

Join us as Marcus discusses the current state of the hobby board game industry, the skill it takes to design games that appeal to the modern audience - and why on earth anyone would do it.
