Hello fellow gamer! My name is Paul and I am in love with all things gaming, particularly tabletop games. This website is dedicated to board games, card games, adventures, stories and the creative process. I will post reviews, instructional videos, ranked lists, updates on games I may be working on with friends, opinions and more. We have also released a podcast that discusses our stories from around the table and our thoughts about games called The Dicey Review Podcast, make sure to give it a listen wherever you get your podcasts!
The goal of this blog is to get people to the table. Tabletop and board games have an incredible ability to get people to look at each other, to interact, to talk and joke and develop social skills that are not nurtured by watching a screen. I’ve heard board games described as a social lubricant, a way for people to overcome social anxiety and interact while trying to achieve a common goal or trying to out think an opponent.
I know that for me tabletop games are a way for my wife and I to connect and have a fun evening when we can’t get out of the house. I’m also very excited to be able to connect to my kids through this wonderful hobby. My daughters are now playing with me and these interactions are so much more meaningful than time spent looking at a screen. I can’t get this experience from the latest Xbox shooter and that’s why I feel that it’s important to support this hobby. I want fathers to connect with daughters and mothers to connect with sons. I want families to create traditions and friends to be made around a map of a star field or the ocean. This is my goal and why I am so passionate about bringing people into this amazing hobby.
I hope you enjoy and are entertained by the discussions.
