Meeple and the Moose

About Me

Hello! My name is Alex McKenzie and welcome to my blog! This is where I express my thoughts and feelings about board games! Board gaming has become my favourite activity over the last few years, to the point where if I’m not actively playing a board game, I’m likely consuming media related to this hobby, or planning my next game night.

My profile as a board gamer slants heavily towards discovery and cooperation. It’s the reason why I tend to prefer to play 30 games once rather than three games 10 times each (I tried doing a 10×10 challenge once, it failed horribly). While I don’t often find myself choosing games with a lot of combat or direct attacking, I do have a competitive streak. I don’t need to win to have fun, but it feels good when I come out on top.

Part of my enjoyment of playing a wide variety of games comes from seeing different systems and rule sets and how different designs iterate on each other. I love seeing a game take a tried mechanic and folding it into a new experience. I do recognize that many games require more than one play to explore and I aim to be upfront about my experiences with a game, including any biases I bring to the table with me.

All of the content on this site are my opinion. Posts are edited by my ‘Meticulous Moose’ (my wife).

Beyond cardboard, I also play video games, read voraciously, and enjoy cooking.

Currently I live in Canada with my wife and daughter.
