Tom Harrod

Like many others before him, Tom was lured into the world of board games by being introduced to gateway classics Catan and Carcassonne. These days, however, he’ll most likely be found playing medium-to-heavy Euros such as Le Havre or Tzolk’in, or wearing a nervous face during dexterity games. Tom runs a weekly gaming night for a 200+ members-strong community in Suffolk, where he gets just as much satisfaction teaching games to new attendees as he does playing with the grizzled board game veterans! You can follow the group’s game sessions on Twitter/Instagram by checking out @buryboardgames.
