Hello, and welcome to my profile! I am a game reviewer, content writer, and rule book editor. I am a certified copyeditor and love writing (and reading) in the fantasy and science fiction genres--the deeper the magic system, the better! My favorite movies are, of course, Star Wars (all of them), and my favorite book is Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson.
I love rugby as if it were my own flesh and blood, and I follow NHL hockey with a passion that my team--Calgary Flames--try to put out each and every season (one day we'll win the cup again...). I love watching Australian football (go Swans!) and I used to be on an actual, honest-to-goodness quidditch team (hey, it's a real thing!). I play ultimate Frisbee and was a stadium announcer for a professional team in the AULD.
I love board games (obviously) and have many favorites. Some of those favorites are X-Wing; Champions of Midgard; Heroes of Land, Air & Sea; Clank!; Tiny Epic Galaxies; Terraforming Mars; Flip Ships; and many more, mood depending.Follow
I hail from Nashville, TN and have been board gaming since 2001. I am also an Associate Editor and Staff Writer for Meeple Mountain, a board game review and information site, which is also based right here in Music City. I have been writing for them for almost 5 years now.
I'm mostly into euro-games and my favorite designers are Uwe Rosenberg, Stefan Feld, and Richard Breese.Follow
I have played gateway games since 2004. I was happy with only playing gateway style games alongside some mass market staples until I played Fief: France 1429 at a family reunion in 2016. I was hooked at that point. At that point I was living in rural Kansas, and there were a number of young men that I could invite over to play games.
However, in early 2019 I moved to rural El Salvador. Here I work as an administrator for a small non profit clinic that serves a rural area. There are still people that I can and do play some games with. But it is not the semi regular group that I had had, it is mostly my wife and I. So, this has dramatically increased my interest in games that solo well, and that play well with two players.
At the moment I am trying to build out my solo collection. I prefer games with a AI or a coop to games that only have a "beat your own score solo variant." I am also very interested in games with a strong historical theme.Follow
