Hello! My name is Alex and I write board game reviews on my blog, Meepleandthemoose.com!

I'm Canadian, a father and husband, an avid gamer, and a voracious reader. I also love to cook and spent a few years working in kitchens across the Canadian Prairies. Now I do IT (Systems Administrator)

I mainly lurk on social media, but I'm an open book. If you ever have a question for me, just ask!

I don't have a dog of my own. So I'm always very happy to visit someone else who does have a dog. :)

Played Ark Nova last night for the first time since April. I enjoyed it more than the first time, but it still doesn't light my world on fire.

I had a conservation card from the start of the game that needed a herbivore and a partner zoo of the same continent. It took me more than half the game to find a single playable herbivore.

That huge deck combined with nearly a dozen different tags that may or may not be necessary or present on cards is exhausting.

Self Promotion: New Blog Post 

Last weekend, my game group and I rented a cabin and played all weekend. Part 1 of my recap is now live!

Board game acquisition 

My partner bought me Burgle Bros 2 for my birthday! We both love the first one, I'm looking forward to seeing what sets #2 apart.

But first, stickers must be applied! Luckily I had The Nerd Shelves live stream to keep me company.

Puzzle progress 

I quite regularly forget that puzzles exist, but when I do pull one out, I'm reminded of how relaxing and enjoyable they are!

Verdant has arrived! I've been eagerly awaiting this one and can't wait to get it to the table!

The crossposting from your #Twitter feed to Mastodon feels clunky and disruptive. It also indicates you are treating this community just as your broadcast platform for your takes and your brand. It's not a great look.
