“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” -Plato, Greek philosopher
Hi there! My name is Kerrin Addis. I am based in Melbourne, Australia.
I loved playing board games and cards as a kid and as an adult was looking for something more than Monopoly and Scrabble. I discovered the wonderful world of Euro games, sometimes referred to as Designer games as the Designer’s name is on the box just like an author of a book.
There are 1000’s of Titles and Themes to choose from and 100’s of new ones coming out every year. They are always beautifully produced with great art work.
One of the nice things about these games is there is no elimination like in Monopoly. The game ends at the same time for everyone, so no one misses out on any fun.
When deciding which game to play there are a couple of questions to ask.
- How much time
- How many players?
On the box it will say how long the game usually plays for, how many players and suitable ages eg 8+. Games usually last 30mins to 3 hours and number of players from 2-6.
My mission is to promote playing board games. There is too much fun to be had for people not to know about this great hobby. Sitting around the table playing face-to-face with family, friends or even strangers is one of the most social activities left in this modern world.
The biggest stumbling block I have seen is that a lot of people are put off by trying to figure out the game from the rule book (including me). We prefer to be taught the game by someone who can show us. You can hire me with a big bag of games for your next game night, celebration or event. Our library contains many different titles to cater for all ages.
