Description: 

Alf Seegert is Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in the Department of English at the University of Utah. He has been published in Western Humanities Review, The Journal of Ecocriticism, The Journal of Gaming and Virtual Worlds, Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts, and the anthologies Philip K. Dick and Philosophy and C.S. Lewis and the Imaginative World. His course topics include Virtuality and Nature; Virtuality and Re-Enchantment; and Video Games and Storytelling.

Alf is a life-long lover of board games, video games, and role-playing games. He grew up on games like Dark Tower, Dungeons & Dragons, Tunnels & Trolls, Talisman, and the Ultima series. Alf went on to code a version of Dark Tower into the high school mainframe computer and has since designed half a dozen-or-so board games themed on everything from trolls to the Canterbury Tales: Bridge Troll, Trollhalla, and three games so far with Gryphon Games: The Road to Canterbury, Fantastiqa, and most recently, a co-design with Steven Poelzing, CUBIST.
