Hello, and welcome!
I’m Paul Dean. My friend Quintin Smith is just getting a cup of tea.
This site is a monument to the love of two men. Specifically, to our love of card and board games.
We both make a living as video game journalists, but when we cut and run from that virtual world at the end of the working day, we like to relax with something tangible. Something that’ll let us nudge tiny plastic men around and scowl at real-life humans across a table.
We believe that boardgame journalism should be as surprising, heartfelt and raw as the hobby itself. As anyone who’s ever played a particularly tense hand of poker will know, there’s a tender, emotional core to this hobby. A core we would like to expose like a couple of amateur surgeons performing unsupervised open heart surgery.
But with more jokes.
Stick around! We’ll make you spend a lot of money. Guaranteed.
