Here at Zatu Games, we all work hard to bring you the best possible games along with delivering exclusive content straight to your door. You know our board games and you know our video games, but you don't know the team behind them all! Every month I will be sitting down with a different member of staff so you can get to know us. From customer service to marketing, no meeple will be left unturned!
It's Christmas! It's a time for joy and all of the mince pies. In this month's Meet the Team blog, I'll be introducing you to Arthur, one of the elves, better known as Zatu's Project Manager. When he isn't managing projects, Arthur can be found hosting the monthly Zatu Show over on the Zatu Games YouTube channel.
Name: Arthur Blazey
Job Title: Project Manager
Favourite Colour: Dark Green
Favourite Food: Got to be a Christmas dinner right? Anyone who says otherwise must be lying?
Favourite Biscuit: I know I’m copying Dale, but it has to be dark chocolate digestives!
Favourite Movie: Lion King (the original obviously!), although Toy Story (as in all of them) is a close 2nd!
Favourite Character: Crash Bandicoot – love a bit of nostalgia
Hobbies: Apart from board games (genuinely I have a lot), I play a lot of tennis (100% better than the company’s CEO) and I love languages (French and Spanish)… I suppose that is a hobby?
What’s been your highlight working at Zatu?
It has to be being one half of the presenting team of the monthly Zatu Show on YouTube! Not only do I get to be the centre of attention (lucky everyone else!), but I also get to talk about video and board games, definitely got the dream job right there! … I also didn’t mention that we also do a giveaway every month, so rather than read this I would go on over to YouTube and check it out RIGHT NOW!!
What is your favourite game and why?
Villainous! What a game; play as Disney’s most famous villains trying to get one over on their respective heroes. My personal favourite set is Wicked to the Core. Even if you do not love Disney (weird), this is such a good game!
What was the first video game that you played?
I’m probably showing my age a bit (although not yet in my late 20s!!) It was probably the original Sonic on the Sega Mega Drive.
What is the last board game that you played?
Azul! Easy to pick-up and play and so pretty!
And lastly, Christmas is coming up so would you rather help Kevin McAllister defend his house from the Wet Bandits or eat Buddy’s spaghetti with candy, candy canes, candy corns, syrup AND chocolate from Elf? And why?
Well, it’s definitely not the first one, I’d 100% call the police (which Kevin could have done at any moment!?) and get out of there. So, I guess it would have to be the spaghetti from Elf, I’ll just make sure I brush my teeth well afterwards!
Be sure to check back next month to meet another member of the team here at Zatu! In the meantime, you can always keep up to date with everything going on at Zatu HQ over on Instagram @zatugames. If you want more from Arthur, be sure to check out the Zatu Show every month over on YouTube!
