Boards Alive is a podcast where we talk about tabletop games. Our goal is to show that tabletop gaming can be just as exciting and engaging as Hollywood movies or big budget video games. We try to highlight games that have a rich theme that connects with the mechanics of the game. We want to help people escape into tabletop games and enjoy the competition and camaraderie of gaming.
Who are these guys?
Aaron – I am a teacher who is infatuated with tabletop gaming. I love reading about the new releases, talking about the games I have and want to have (I suffer from Acquisition Disorder, but my wife is helping me work on it, by keeping a hold of my wallet), and I watch a lot of gaming videos online. I also love to play RPGs, both running them and playing a character, and I am always looking for a way to make my RPG experience more immersive.
Quinten – I am also a teacher, though, of the elementary persuasion. I have been getting into board games more and more over the past three years or so. I played Warhammer 40k way back in middle school with a couple friends, but lack of cash didn’t really take it all that far. I was introduced to Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne a number of years ago, but didn’t really realize that there was this thing called “hobby gaming” until recently. I also play D&D with Aaron and a few other friends, being both a player and a DM.
