About Us

Welcome to The Budget Board Gamer.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help you, the New, the Casual, and the Budget Gamer, find excellent games that fit your experience, lifestyle, and budget. If you are a player looking for information about gaming mechanics, terms, starting a gaming group, or anything else, you’ve come to the right place.

About Me

I’m Josh, and I love gaming. I am married to a wonderful woman, and we are parents to a precious little troublemaker. Seriously, this kid is trouble and knows it. I have been gaming for years, but budgetary constraints have limited my library. Ask me if you have any questions. If I don’t know the answer, I will do my best to find it for you.

About Our Group(s)

We actually have four groups.

  • One for social, and party games.
  • Another group is for games that are aimed at teens and adults, either due to the rules, or the content.
  • The third group is for games that are more complicated, or confusing and so not a good fit for my other groups. This group has my most experienced players in it.
  • The last group is my family group. This is where I play the games that are geared for younger players and family nights.

There is a lot of overlap between our groups though, and we believe we have a good mix of personalities, play styles, interests, education levels, and lifestyles. Including one special needs player who is one of our most enthusiastic.
