Nathan Coombs

I am a keen board gamer and developed a passion for games in my childhood. I live in North Wiltshire with my wife and family. Fortunately they enjoy games (almost!) as much as I do. I work full time in the NHS, but would love to do more gaming if time permitted.
My favourite genres include those with worker placement (Agricola) or games with hand management (such as 7 Wonders). I love getting to grips with new games and reviewing them for Zatu Games.

Favourite: Game, Movie, Fictional Character & Food
