There is nothing like the comradery that comes through playing a board game.

Managing Editor – Callum Marshall
Callum is been a huge fan of board games ever since he was a child. Being an avid gamer, a lot of his pastimes were solitary but board game nights were an exception to the rule that brought friends and family together for a night of comradery. His favorites as a child were games like Trivial Pursuit, Mouse Trap, Boggle, and Scrabble. However, as an adult, Callum has moved on to more complex and strategic board games which take hours to learn, never mind play, but that’s part of the fun, right?
These days Callum will actively seek out board game cafes and seek like-minded individuals who love setting out on a new campaign. His favorites at the moment are Arkham Horror, The Stardew Valley Board Game, The Dark Souls Official Board Game, The Horizon Zero Dawn Board Game, Disney Villainous, and Cards Against Humanity.
Favorite Childhood Board Game: Even as a young kid, I was obsessed with words and trivia, so probably Trivial Pursuit, or Boggle.
Favorite Board Game Ever: The Stardew Valley Board Game.
Board Game I Would Love To Try: Terraforming Mars and Secret Hitler spring to mind. I would also love to learn how to play DND
Most Overrated Board Game: The Game of Life, it sucks.
Tabletop Gaming Hot Take: A board game night beats a night out at the bar every time
David loved his family’s board gaming nights as a kid. During that time, he played Risk, Scrabble, or Monopoly almost every night with his siblings. As he grew older, his interests in gaming and history started to mix, so these days he mainly plays strategic board games like Scythe or Twilight Struggle in his spare time.
However, his interests expand beyond the historical strategy genre as he’s always on the lookout for the latest releases. David’s currently living his dream, as he’s learning new gameplays every week and shares his opinions about these board games with his readers.
Favorite childhood board game: Risk is undoubtedly my favorite childhood game. I still love getting together with a group of friends and spending the night fighting for world domination.
Favorite board game ever: If I have to choose just one, I’d definitely go with The Settlers of Catan, although Axis & Allies and Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game are also among my favorites.
The board game I would like to try: I’d love to try Gutenberg.
Most overrated board game: Cluedo or Clue, whatever you want to call it. We all know who did it, but I won’t give it away incase anyone really wants to play it.
Tabletop gaming hot take: It doesn’t matter who wins. Board gaming is about friendship.
Ben is a casual tabletop game enthusiast. He especially loves Here To Slay and all things in the same vein of ridiculousness. He’s often sitting down for an evening round of Yahtzee, Carcassonne, Catan or Quacks with friends. Ben’s also an experienced automotive writer and mechanic who takes his passion for problem solving and throws it into board games, and when he isn’t tinkering with cars or custom board game pieces, he’s usually watching something Star Wars related on Disney+.
Favorite childhood board game: Chess. I’m no good at it now but I was in Chess Club when I was younger. I used to love making overly sacrificial plays to draw out a mistake. It didn’t always work, but I had fun.
Favorite board game ever: Here To Slay is a relatively new one for me, but yes. That. Anyone can play it and every game is always different. Not for die-hard gamers, perhaps, but I love it.
The board game I would like to try: Star Wars: Legion. I’m terrible at building miniatures but I like Star Wars. Seems like a great one for me if I can get an arty friend to do the hard work!
Most overrated board game: Monopoly is the most overrated game ever. Have you honestly ever met anyone who likes it?
Tabletop gaming hot take: If you can’t laugh over it with your mates, throw it away.
