The Team

Corle Huffman


 Corle Huffman professionally played both Mechwarrior: Dark Ages and World of Warcraft Miniatures, winning a National Championship, two Regional Championships, several international competitions, and placed 2nd and 3rd at both of his World Championship appearances. Corle is also passionate about education (holding a Masters in Fine Arts), and advocates for Game Theory in educational environments. Finally, Corle also loves bad puns. 

Nick Turchen


 Nick Turchen, owner of Black Key Games, is passionate about the entire gaming experience -- rules, components, box design, and strategy. He has organized local gaming groups for over 20 years, owns an embarrassing amount of board games, named his daughter after a video game character, and is a devoted Disney fanatic. Finally, Nick loves bad puns. 

Michelle Clancy



Michelle Clancy, or “Mishy” as the internet calls her, cries over fictional worlds and characters. A lot. More known in certain fandom circles, she’s just happy to be here trying to make a living from creating art. Or she’s drawing out of spite. Probably both. With a Bachelor of Science in Media Arts & Animation, she now finds more joy in illustrating pretty pictures but sometimes you can find her tabling at local comic/anime conventions or sharing her work online... all while repeatedly declaring her undying love to her lord and savior, Takashi Shirogane (Black Paladin of Voltron). If you’d like to give the ultimate support to our sleep-deprived artist, consider pledging to her Patreon where Black Key Games art sometimes gets revealed early!
