About Jack Baum
At the age of 45, I am not only an enthusiast of the age-old tradition of board games, but I’m also an advocate for quality family time. Growing up with memories of fierce Monopoly competitions and intense Scrabble showdowns, my love for these tabletop adventures began in the early days of my childhood.
Over the years, I’ve expanded my collection, delved into the history of board games, and frequently introduced contemporary finds that deserve a spot on our family game night roster. My passion for board games goes beyond just playing; I appreciate the strategy, the art, the narratives, and most importantly, the bonds they foster among players.
In a world filled with digital distractions, I firmly believe that board games are a beautiful antidote. They draw families and friends closer, instilling values of patience, strategy, and sometimes, just a dash of sheer luck!
Having a professional background that’s led me to various corners of the world, I’ve often seized these opportunities to discover and explore board games from diverse cultures. These travels haven’t only expanded my game collection but have also deepened my appreciation for the universality of board games and the tales they share.
On my blog, I am eager to recount my experiences, offer tips, and provide recommendations. Whether you’re a seasoned player or just venturing into the captivating world of board games, my insights are designed to guide, entertain, and perhaps reignite a passion for this cherished pastime.
In my personal sphere, I am a father, husband, and an unabashed champion of family game nights. My utmost joy is sitting across a board, dice in hand, with my loved ones, crafting memories one game at a time. So, journey with me as I navigate the enchanting realms of board games, interlaced with personal tales, critiques, and a hefty serving of amusement!
