The Thoughtful Gamer

“I created The Thoughtful Gamer to provide a high-quality board game reviews, strategy guides, and discussion about board game culture. Soon after beginning I started a bi-weekly podcast. Then I expanded that to include off-week podcast features. Now I even stream games occasionally, and I’m in the process of dipping my toes into the world of video reviews and how to play videos.”
