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
