Ben Reingold - CEO (Chicken Executive Officer)

Ben has been designing and playing board games since he was a child, and he enjoys many different types of games. He designed Risky Chicken because he had never come across a repeated prisoner’s dilemma game with variable player powers (and he thinks chickens are funny.)

When not designing board games, Ben enjoys singing, playing pickleball, and rooting for the Chicago Cubs. A native of the great suburb of Highland Park, IL, Ben recently graduated from Kenyon College in Ohio. You can reach him at ben@moraineroadgames.com


Kerry Rudy - CFO (Chicken Financial Officer)

Kerry is a retired investment banker with more than 25 years of experience working in capital markets. He is now President of Inveniam.io, a software company that collects data with integrity for private market assets. 

Kerry is also a partner with Fairchild Acquisitions and a lead investor and board member of Crystal Diagnostics, an innovative manufacturer of proprietary testing products that detect pathogens in food and water supply. He obtained his BBA from the University of Texas at Austin and MBA from the Cox Business School at Southern Methodist University. He works so that he can enjoy time with his family traveling, golfing, eating and playing games. You can reach him at kerry@moraineroadgames.com.
