Josh McDowell started playing board games after his wife encouraged him to find an inexpensive hobby. The joke is on her, as that encouragement turned into an expansive collection and regular schedule of playing games with his friends. He turned to his graphic design prowess to offset the costs and is now completely engrossed in all things board games. He lives in Indiana with his wife and three young children, gamers in the making. You can find his portfolio at www.behance.net/mcscowl.


Alexandr lives in Ukraine, Odessa and works as a freelancer and specializes in several styles: sci-fi, cyberpunk and fantasy. He’s looking for hard-core projects in the styles that he likes.

Cephalofair Games is also grateful for the sculpting work of James van Shaik, who created all the wonderful miniatures for Gloomhaven.

Gloomhaven would also be nowhere without the editing skills of Mathew G. Somers, Marcel Cwertetschka, and Jim Spivey.

Marcel Cwertetschka has also designed the first expansion for Gloomhaven, Forgotten Circles, which was a lot of work!

Cephalofair Games also has one part-time employee, the illustrious Price Johnson, who handles all community management.

And Cephalofair Games collaborates with a number of companies to produce localisations of Gloomhaven (Feuerland in Germany, Hobby World in Russia, and VFI Asia in China), as well as officially licensed Gloomhaven products (wooden inserts from Broken Token and Meeple Realty, removable stickers from Sinister Fish, and player mats from Quiver Gaming Gear).
