The Brains Behind TGG: Your Management Staff

Michael Richards

Michael Richards was born and raised here in Tucson, Az. One of our resident ORCS grew up playing Soccer, Video Games, and Board Games. His game addiction comes from his step-dad owning a store down in Sierra Vista and as a child he did work around the store for booster packs of MTG. Michael enjoy all facets of nerdism even earning a prestigious award at the young age of 16 in the SCA, his AoA. He is an avid Board Gamer by day, and hardcore PC gamer by night and he definitely enjoys all games of all variety. One of his most recent top accolades was Winning a major Klask Tournament in 2019 bringing home a trophy to TGG. Yes he’s a world renown KLASK champion! Sometimes his competitiveness gets the better of him but in the end still plays to win.

Shane Terpstra

Whether creating combat rules used by him and his brothers playing with action figures as children in the early 80s, creating worlds for various role playing systems or as a level designer for video games, Shane has always had a serious love affair with rulesets, game lore and world building. Currently exploring new rpg systems he is presently in love with narrative based systems. (Fiasco anyone?) Being the elder statesman of TGG, Shane now has grandchildren and knows it is his duty to teach them a love of games after having done so with his three daughters. This has forced him to play less complicated and time-consuming games and focus on more casual and easy to learn titles. He regrets nothing.

Steven Furgason

Hailing from parts unknown Steve has skills beyond most people mental understanding. He loves setting up TGG’s many displays and an layouts through our both locations. He currently is the store manager of Tucson Games and Gadget’s Park Place location. He has been working in sales for over twelve years and has been a manager for the last five, his specialties include visual merchandising and logistics. He enjoys creating a fun and inviting experience for his customers and has goals to run his own business in the future. (WE WILL NEVER LET HIM LEAVE!)
