Chip Beauvais is writing a series of articles on board game player psychographic profiles for the website Whose Turn Is It Anyway. The purpose of these articles is as a resource for game designers who wish to understand the types of players who play their games. Chip is the designer of the game Chroma Cubes.

Our discussion focused on his motivation behind writing this series and where the series started off. We explored the ideas behind the second article, which analyzes two specific gamer types he titles Erin and Ingrid (competitive players and optimizing players). Both of these profiles, according to Chip, are driven by the goal of the game. 

If you wish to learn more about these player profiles or read the other articles in the series, please visit Whose Turn Is It Anyway and look for the articles titled Player Psychographic Profiles. Chip has more articles coming out in the future.
