Writer at Board Game Quest. Brian’s gaming addiction started when he was twelve when a close friend introduced him to Dungeons and Dragons. Years later, his DM wanted a break from RPGs and introduced the group to one of the first Milton Bradley Gamemaster series: Axis and Allies. Well, after playing just one game; let’s just say Brian now had two loves to balance. The board gaming floodgates really opened for him when his group added other games to their rotation like Risk, Conquest of the Empire, Fortress America, Shogun, and of course Dark Tower (those damn Brigands). Before high school and after college, Brian continued to collect and play various types of board games. He has never been able to shake his need for a board game “fix” or his connection to like-minded gamers (hence how he ended up at Board Game Quest). Brian would thank his wife for putting up with his two hobbies for all these years but long before they married he came out of the “gamer closet” to her and she has accepted his other loves ever since (or at least puts up a good front).
