We talk to Corey, Andrew’s best friend and one of the first writers for The Family Gamers. Check out his review of Downforce.

Thanks, Ryan from One Board Family!

We talk to Nick, one of our newer writers, about both board games and video games. We absolutely loved his review of Century: Spice Road.

Why We Love Board Games

Andrew’s early memories of board games: his favorite was Mille Bornes. Anitra played a lot of Monopoly, Rack-O, and Troke. She also loved “The Great Blizzard” game (it’s not good, folks).

We both transitioned towards playing more video games, and got back into board games in a big way around the time our daughter was 4.

Andrew has been in podcasting for a long time. He started with dabbling in video games journalism and especially loved Contrast (be aware, rated T). He eventually pivoted to board games (around the time our family became more interested in board games in general). Then he dragged Anitra in, and The Family Gamers was born.


We are so excited when we get an email from our listeners. Joseph R. sent us an email with another reason why Chick-Fil-A is awesome. Their new kid’s meal toy: a Rory’s Story Cube!


We’re giving away a ton of games to 3 lucky winners. Enter here to win! (I can’t believe we forgot to mention Toasted or Roasted when we read off the games. So sorry!)
