A woman living in New York who is married to @DMSamuel.
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.
Hello, and welcome to my profile! I am a game reviewer and content writer here at Board Game Atlas, as well as a rule book editor. I also own Board Game Immersion, a website for reviews, various types of videos, articles, and more. 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.
I enjoy many hobbies and all things gaming including:
- board games (obviously)
- video games (console, PC, whatever)
- Role playing games of all stripes
- Painting miniatures
- assembling and painting model planes, tanks, cars etc

I'm an old person that has been playing boardgames for most of my life.
In these covid-lockdown days, I've been spending some time implementing games that amuse me in Tabletop Simulator. And not in the 'oh, look; one can manually manipulate the assets' sense; I'm trying to create a game experience that works aesthetically for me. Along the way, I've been trying to explore the way a user interface drives a game system; and I think the more recently implemented games are a bit cooler to play than the first ones I'd attempted.

A gamer since my teen years (maybe before).
I dig clever modern mechanics, but old Avalon Hill/TSR/SPI stuff has a place in my heart.
Welcome to my profile page and thanks for stopping by. Sometimes I write about the games I'm playing, along with other things like food and general life stuff on my blog: DanielJIsom.com
I'm a husband and a father of three kids, ages 6 and under. I am currently trying to reduce my collection, or rather, curate it. The games I'm most interested in adding to my collection are:
- Endeavor: Age of Sail
- The Palaces of Carrara
I'm a Cinephile, a Wine Geek, Board Gamer, Designer, and aspiring world traveler. I love new experiences and especially new games.
