I discovered the world of modern board games when I happened upon King of Tokyo in a book shop. I was so taken with the art work and premise of the game that I immediately purchased it. That was the start of the rabbit hole and since that day I have developed acquisition disorder, started a YouTube channel (Board, Deck & Dice) and been lucky enough to start freelancing in the industry. I’ll play most things but find myself leaning towards more complicated games as my nine-year-old beats me at everything else.
