Awards and Recognition

ShushCon 2018 RPG Pharaoh’s Challenge Winner

Relatively new to the board game media scene. I enjoy a very wide variety of games for the most heavy to the most light.  I have found my favorites to be in trading and social deduction based games. I also enjoy a good story based RPG. I have been both behind the screen and in front of it.  In addition to my boardgame hobbies I am an avid pc gamer and enjoy fiddling with or building PCs.
