Our purpose

 

After years of heartfelt involvement in the tabletop scene, we felt there was something missing in the vast realm of tabletop culture. So, we created a space where we could open discussions about board games in a more academic light.

Whether it be analysing how mechanics affect player behaviours, comparing the aesthetics or moral standpoint of certain games, or simply gushing about how our favourite games capture players imaginations, we endeavour to provide useful titbits for your own game design exploits.

So kick back and have a browse, maybe you'll learn something, maybe you'll be able to enlighten us. Either way, don't be afraid to get involved in discussions.

Lets talk Tabletop.
