Recent Articles & Reviews by Andy Matthews

I'm the founder of Meeple Mountain, editor in chief of MeepleMountain.com, as well as a husband, father, board game lover, and software engineer. I am a published author with 4 books to my credit and almost 10 years worth of writing under my belt. I love board gaming of all sorts and in 2015 I created Meeple Mountain as a way to express my interest in board gaming. I play and review games of all genres, with an eye towards the lighter to medium end of the spectrum.

I do my best to play games, almost any sort of games, multiple times a week. I challenged myself to play at least one game every single day in 2016. My children end up being my primary gaming partners, especially my 11yo daughter.

I'm as equally at home playing games like No Thanks or Battle Sheep as I am with games like Yspahan or Castles of Burgundy and Stone Age.

I created and run Nashville Game Night which draws over 60 people each month. I'm also the creator and organizer of Nashville Tabletop Day.
