Gavin Hudson

I'm a poet, restorative justice trainer and tabletop gamer from Sheffield. My love of/obsession with modern gaming was sparked proper by Twilight Struggle about 6 or 7 years ago and my collection has grown from there, slowly creeping around every wall of my flat like a Kallax shaped demon from the Upside Down.

While I will pretty much play anything, as a writer I am a sucker for anything that allows me to tell or become immersed in a world or story, although I have a penchant for cute little abstracts like Onitama and the GIPF series too. Solo only or decent Solo mode will grab my attention also, as will anything with good production that looks shiny and pretty.

Favourite: Game, Movie, Fictional Character & Food
