Elijah Longwell – Jack of All, Co-Owner

Recruiter by day, board game enthusiast by night. Despite controversy, I’m a firm believer that collecting can be just as fun as playing games. My favorite aspect of the board gaming hobby is its ability to bring people together in a meaningful way. You can reach me on twitter @elilong or by email elijah@meeplemountain.com

Jared Snyder – Cafe Operations, Co-Owner

I have 5 years of restaurant experience. I’ve been deep in the board gaming hobby for about 6ish years now. I love teaching and showing games to people as much as playing them. I also work have my real estate license. I live in Nashville with my wife, Anna, and my daughter, Faith. I’ve learned to fix a lot of “housing issues” (plumbing, drywall, some electrical, painting, tiling, etc.). I also enjoy serving people; I love hosting and taking care of people’s needs and showing them a good time.
