In the late 1980s, Jim was one of the playtesters from the University of Pennsylvania that Richard Garfield tagged to help get the Alpha card set (and game rules) ready for public consumption. He also provided card texts voor Alpha.  Together with Skaff Elias, Dave Pettey and Chris Page, he later formed a subset of the Alpha Playtesters referred to as the "East Coast Playtesters". Together, they designed the Ice Age and Alliances expansions.
