Richard Garfield is a game designer most notable for creating Magic: The Gathering. While not majorly involved in Magic currently, he still contributes to the design of some sets. He has a BS in Computer Mathematics and a PhD in Combinatorial Mathematics. You can read his thesis here, but if you don't understand it, it's sufficient to say he's good at math. His games tend to have quite a logical bent to them. If you're playing a Richard Garfield game, stack your bonuses.


Richard's great-great-grandfather is 20th U.S. President, James A. Garfield; and Richard's grand-uncle invented the paper clip.
