My name is Alex and I am a 24 year-old gamer living in northern California. I love games. Board games, card games, video games, you name it. I started this blog as an outlet to talk about games; how they’re designed, how they’re played, why they’re fun, etc.
I have been playing Magic: the Gathering for 5+ years now, and I have to say that it is hands down my favorite game. I play Legacy, Modern, Standard, Draft, Cube Draft, EDH, Judge’s Tower – basically any opportunity that I have to play magic, I do so. I have been maintaining a 540 card unpowered cube for a little over a year now, and that is usually how I spend my time when I don’t have anyone to play magic with.
Aside from my MTG exploits, I play a good amount of video games and board games. I had a brief foray into the world of game design with a small start up among some friends. There I was lead designer on a few games and took on the responsibility of rules testing many of the games and covering most of our market research and brand management. I was forced to bow out due to time constraints, but I still have a few independent projects that I am pursuing in my free time.
