Randy Scheunemann grew up as much as he was going to in smalltown Minnesota, and joined the Navy when he was 18. After serving six years on a submarine based in Hawaii, he moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he worked on a riverboat casino repairing slot machines. This career stop was brief, and Randy moved back to Minnesota for a short time before relocating to Austin, Texas, where he began working for Steve Jackson Games as a shipping clerk. Since then, he has helped to create and develop several games, including Zombie Dice, Revolution!, Mars Attacks: The Dice Game, and Mars Attacks: Ten-Minute Takedown. He spends much of his time traveling to conventions as a demo master and speaking with store owners about SJ Games releases.
