The Team

President

Favorite games:

Dominant Species is my favorite game, and I really enjoy area control games like Blood Rage, Kemet, Cyclades, and Inis. Time’s Up is also a favorite.

Gateway into the hobby:

As a kid, I played a lot of the classic games – War, Monopoly, and Life – with my grandma. As I got older, HeroQuest and Dungeons and Dragons became staples in my gaming.

If I could game with anyone:

Gaming with Stefan Feld would be a dream come true. He’s always been one of my favorite designers. It would also be great to game with Phil Eklund.

COO

Favorite games:

I love a good 2+player game that I can play with my husband, and then easily teach my friends. Tiny Epic Galaxies is one of my all-time favorites. 

Gateway into the hobby:

Through a mutual connection, I was introduced to Travis and Action Phase Games, helping them kick off their first Kickstarter campaign: Heroes Wanted. I fell in love with the industry and have been playing everything that crosses my table since.

If I could game with anyone:

I really enjoy when I get to play with someone new. Games are for everyone, so when someone says they don’t think they’d like a game, I take it as a challenge to find the right game for them.

Community Manager

Favorite games:

Cooperative games that I can play with my kids (like Pandemic, Flash Point: Fire Rescue, and Castle Panic) are always hitting the table. I also really like Cthulhu Wars.

Gateway into the hobby:

I played Magic: The Gathering back in high school, but my first foray into modern board games included Formula D and Specter Ops.

If I could game with anyone:

It’s kind of a sappy answer, but I’d love to game with my grandfather. We played chess and checkers together when I was younger, and I loved to watch his mind at work. It would be great to see that mind at work in some of today’s games. I think he’d really love strategic abstract games like Onitama and Santorini.

Developer

Favorite games:

Cooperative games, and solo games tend to be my favorite. Growing up, I always enjoyed split-screen video games. When those died off, board games filled that void.

Gateway into the hobby:

It was definitely Arkham Horror. My friends and I pulled it off of the demo shelf after a Magic: the Gathering tournament, and I ended up buying a copy to bring home.

If I could game with anyone:

I’d love to have played Codenames with Robin Williams. Can you imagine some of the clues he would give?
