About

scottstripThe Board Game Show is a blog and podcast about — wait for it — board games! I’m not an industry insider or an industry-insider-wannabe (man, there are a lot of those around). I’m just a guy who has been playing all manner of board games, wargames, and a few role-playing games since the mid-70’s and want to share my love for the hobby. I particularly love heavily thematic, story-driven games, but I’m generally up for playing anything.

I love miniatures games, and every now and then I like to paint them. For some reason this desire to paint hits me in the middle of deep Wisconsin winters, when I find myself creating toxic clouds of spray paint in my not-so-well-ventilated basement. Why I can’t do that in the summer is beyond me. If I sound a bit loony on some of the podcasts, this may explain a few things.

I plan to hit the podcasting a bit harder within the next few weeks, so if you’ve been anticipating another episode, the wait is almost over! The frequency of my new short-format podcast will shock and awe you. Maybe. I hope.

I also love to play wargames, which I started playing in the early 80’s with games such as Panzer Blitz and Flat Top. Today I dabble in everything from Memoir ’44 to Conflict of Heroes.

I also enjoy seeking out the perfect solitaire game, mixing cocktails, and dreaming about attending GenCon Indy year after year.

Thanks for stopping by, and hope you enjoy the board gaming goodness I’ve prepared for you. Let’s begin now, shall we?

  1. Hi Scott: we would like for you to review our new game – Paddy O’Shea’s Golf Card Game. Where should we send you the game?
    Thank you. David Medansky

  2. Hi, David! Thanks for getting in touch. You can contact me directly at scott@theboardgameshow.com where I will send you my address. Sounds interesting!

  3. I notice that you use an image of A STUDY IN EMERALD in your banner but you haven’t written about it. I’d love to hear what you think of it.

    • Thanks for getting in touch. I actually have a review of A Study In Emerald that I haven’t yet posted. I’ve been picking away at it from time to time. Keep an eye out, and I’ll try to have it up in the next week.
