|SAN DIEGO. As a young boy growing up in California, Don loved to play board games with his family and friends, especially because it
always seemed to bring so much happiness into their lives. Those special times got Don interested in developing some ideas for his
own games. He studied the various designs and playing strategies of previously published games and used that knowledge to create
games, such as, Moon Probe, Making Millions, Earth vs. Mars, and his most popular game, Build-A-House.
ST. LOUIS. As a young man living in Missouri, Don was able to bring his joy with board games into his practice as a group therapist.
While working on a psychiatric unit in a university hospital setting, he found that board games not only soothed and relaxed patients, but
they were instrumental in improving decision-making, problem-solving and goal-setting skills. All of this inspired Don to host a weekly
event called "Board Game Night" for staff, patients and their families. This event became the most popular activity offered by the hospital.
UNITED STATES. After enjoying many years of playing all kinds of old board games with family, friends, and patients, Don decided that
everyone across the nation should have an opportunity to enjoy them as well. In 1998 he planned to acquire games from anywhere he
could to build up an inventory for an Internet store in his later years. He focused on finding complete games in excellent condition and
making complete games from partial games. When his inventory grew to become 1000s of games, it became clear that it was time to
create a user-friendly website for all of you to enjoy. Don's Game Closet was launched in September 2007. More about us below.
