About us

So, let me tell you a little about myself! I’m in my early 40’s, married with 2 children. We live in the south of the U.K. near the city of Southampton. My daughter (8) is growing into an awesome gamer, picking up some of the gateway worker placement games.

We started playing board games about 4 years ago to get the kids off the games machines and to also re-ignite my enjoyment in games from my teenage years (bloodbowl, Talisman and a bit of D&D). This has now turned into a major part of our life. It gives me and my wife quality time together (yes she likes to play games too, winner) and also has brought friends old and new to visit us regularly. The dining room is now the “Games” room and a central place to spend leisure time in our home.

I started the Instagram account BoardGameMeeple to share the joy of gaming with a wider community of gamers and to combine the love of taking photos. We now have over 8000 followers and we love spreading the wonder of boardgaming all over the world. There is nothing better than engaging followers on new games, recommendations and sharing our experiences.

The next stage is to start to write short photo reviews and news articles on what’s going on in the world of boardgames.
