Playologist was on the placard sitting on my mentors desk. Someone made this rule that we all have to do something. That we all have to be something. We’ll it wasn’t until I saw this tile, immortalized in brass like so many professors door plates I has seen before that I knew what I wanted to be. Ology, the study of, and play, the focus of the study was just so elegantly simple and joyful and instantly recognizable that I was like a bucket cold water. My mentor Howard Moody had given me the gift of a magnifying glass. The gift of clarity. He was the most intensely playful individual that took his calling so seriously that he was guilty of taking it TOO serious. A Playologist was the name that fit him very well. Perfect state of being. Since that day over 20 years ago I have devoted my life to “building healthy community through play.” A mission that Epic Toys is keystone in serving. My favorite game is, without a doubt capture eh flag with fo swords. And let me explain why. It combine so many elements of play that grip me. Physical sport that both challenge gone player personally and the player competitively. I love it because we have to honor our opponent by acting out our wounds while trying to defeat them. Helping the enemy so I can have a better game. Awesome!
