I have been board gaming since I was young but with memories of playing classics like Cluedo, Sorry mad Escape from Atlantis. However, modern boardgaming has only been on the table for about 3 years.
My favourite games are either semi cooperative with a strong theme and a quality traitor mechanic or a solid mid heavy euro.
I am also one of South Yorkshire's Hairy Game Lords
Outside of gaming I am a husband and dad and I work with Children in Care to make sure they are making the most of their education.
I Love music and have a real soft spot for 90's indie and anything with an edge of alternative British folk.

Favourite: Game, Movie, Fictional Character & Food

Trophies is great as a fast filler for an established games group but would be a hit at Christmas or any other party with a large family or work’s group.

Planet Unkown is a brilliant twist on the polyominoes mechanic. Through the innovative use of the centre piece of the game, the lazy Susan, players experience little or no downtime making this deep and tactical game so much faster than its competitors.

Escape Tales: Low Memory Review

Escape Tales: Low Memory was a brilliant experience and one I will be trying again with their other titles. It’s mix of gaming styles, beautifully woven story and clever little puzzles works so well.
