Welcome to my blog, Board Gamer Dad, a board and card games blog written by a husband and father of two who’s right into modern board games. I used to run board games events in West Auckland, under the name Games@Westgate. However, my family and I have since moved to Morrinsville, NZ. As my kids grow they’re getting more into their table top games, especially my 5-year-old son. I love sharing my thoughts about games and how they can be an excellent activity for families, couples and friends to spend quality face-to-face time together.

If you’re interested in finding out more about modern board gaming in general, the following posts are great places to start:

Thanks for organising a great community event. Our family thoroughly enjoyed it and have since bought the board game ‘Othello’

Fantastic job Nick!
