Thom Newton

By day I work as a mild mannered (sometimes) software developer. My first forays into the world of modern designer boardgames started just over 10 years with Catan and Carcasonne and has now ballooned to a point where it may not overwhelm my time, but it definitely overwhelms my storage space. I’d describe myself as a Euro leaning gamer but I am definitely not against chucking handfuls of dice to make big plastic minis fight each other. My current favourite designer is probably Alexander Pfister .

Outside of the world of cardboard and plastic I enjoy cooking and am trying to get back into the world of rock climbing.
