My name is Alex. I have a website. This is my website! I work. I take pictures. Sometimes both at once. I also play an unhealthy amount of board games. 

I started playing board games about 8 years ago and that's about it. I haven't been to a convention. I haven't designed a game. I haven't been quoted on any box covers. I'm just a regular guy who loves to play games. What I do have is opinions and hopefully you find them helpful!

My goal with Bottom Shelf Board Games is to provide insight into how a game makes you feel, rather than just explain how to play the game. There are plenty of places do that much better than I ever could. But I hope to bring a bit more insight to my reviews and present them to you on in an attractive manner.

If you are so inclined, you can check me out on Board Game Geek. And here are some the games I've been playing.
