Welcome to the Pub!

At its core, Pub Meeple is a gaming community. We’re just a handful of dads that want to play games, design games, make games, play your games, sleep occasionally, then play some more games. Obviously, we enjoy all things gaming, but game design has always been at the forefront of our projects and collaborations. We are also strong supporters of our local gaming community and the board game hobby in general.

There are lots of different ways to connect with Pub Meeple. Contact us here or use the social media of your choice.

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than gathering around a table with people to make new shared memories through the interactions board games create. I have been playing board games my whole life, but I have been focused on them as a hobby for the past 10+ years. Board games offer a unique medium for social interaction and fun. I really look forward to playing these games with my kids as a way to interact and stay connected with them. In the last several years, I have delved into board game design and found something that really satisfies my need to create in a way nothing else has.

Favorite Games: Star Wars Rebellion, Carcassonne, 4X games, Legacy games

My grandfather was a gamer and spent hours introducing me to great games at a young age. Through the years of LARPing and role playing, my love for the boards, cards, and minis never dwindled. Now I spend my free time filming videos and finding excuses to play the next game.

Favorite Games: Pente, Survive, Descent

I grew up playing video games and dabbled in a few CCGs and the BattleTech board game in high school. I had otherwise lived peacefully without any knowledge of the hobby board games industry until Shuck lured me into a game of Lords of Waterdeep at our local game store in 2013. It was at that game night that I met Bryan as well. I was hooked. I started building a game collection of my own so I could share my love of board games with friends and family. In particular, I enjoy playing games with my four young children and introducing them to the hobby.

Favorite Games: Small World, Agricola, Suburbia, Viticulture, Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game

As a child I grew up on consoles and card games. Many, many hours were logged playing the NES but my family also taught me quality board games like Trumpet and Survive. As a teenager, I mostly played Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, or Chess. It was around this time, though, that I began dabbling in web design and Photoshop. My first experience in the modern board gaming hobby was after I played Carcassonne in college and went crazy finding ultra-rare pieces in German magazines. Now I enjoy developing games by observing the world around us and combining it with aesthetically pleasing graphic design.

Favorite Games: Deus, Takenoko, Agricola

My love for board gaming is tied to my need to develop deeper connections with people. My collection keeps growing into the 100’s of games so that I can always have the perfect game to play with a particular group. I hope to be influential in progressing the hobby in new and interesting ways.

Favorite Games: Julius Caesar, The Resistance, Pit

I’ve grown up playing and loving Chess then added Catan post-college until I was invited to my first board game conference. Now I eat, sleep, and breathe (though I’m asthmatic) the exact same as I had before but just with more board games and thoughts about creating them in the meantime.

Favorite Games: Expedition: Northwest Passage, The King is Dead, Honshu
