Location Raleigh, NC, United States
Introduction I'm creating learn-to-play board games videos! Ever wanted to play a board game that you thought the rulebook is too long, confusing, or difficult to teach to your friends? That's why I'm here! Minimize time, Maximize learning! I actually enjoy reading rulebooks and figuring out how to play new games! I'm known to my local game group as the game explainer. I've taught countless games over the years to both friends and strangers. I've been told I do a good job and relate the rules in an easy-to-understand way. I'm also thorough. I'm going to create teaching videos on YouTube with the goal to be quick, efficient, professional, and complete. I've been playing board games all my life. Starting with classic games like "The Game of Life," "Monopoly," and "Sorry!" and into "Settlers of Catan," "Carcassonne," and "Pandemic" through college. Now, I play all kinds of modern games like "Terraforming Mars," "Great Western Trail," and "Viticulture." I organize a board game meetup once or twice a month as we're free.
