About

This blog will concentrate mainly on my love for, and playing of, boardgames.

I was going to write that I can’t believe how many people think boardgames are purely those seen on the shelves of Toys’R’Us or Tesco, etc. You know, Monopoly, Cluedo, Scrabble, for example.
However, I know that I also held that opinion until a few years ago, when my wife and I first noticed a strange-looking game appearing halfway up the stairs of our local Borders bookshop….

It was still half a year before we took the plunge and bought the game in the blue box (It was still in the same location!). The game was called Carcassonne. There were no dice. There wasn’t a board to move from start to finish upon.

Little did we realise that this little game would lead us to railway clubs, people’s homes, scout huts and even to Essen, Germany! As well as introducing us to great friends along the way.

So, onto the name – BoxFart
Quite simply, it’s the term gamers use for the noise of air escaping when a box lid is placed on the bottom (of the box you filthy mongrels). Besides, all the other good names had gone!

Please enjoy the site and share any articles you liked!

I’m looking to contact Board Game Bloggers to help promote my new game
on Kickstarter. I’d really like you to take a look at
http://www.facebook.com/plaguelandofthedead … if you can help me with some
blogging, I’d like to send you a digital copy of the game for your
review. I’m going to start the kickstarter campaign in a week, so I’d
really like to get a buzz going.

Thanks

I heard that you sometime write about upcoming games on Kickstarter. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign for the tabletop game B.E.E.S. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/156924102/bees
The concept behind the game is that Spirits contain a renewable energy source called Quintessence, and it is your job to collect a quota of Spirits and Quintessence.
Please check it out and if this game interests you, I would appreciate any promotion you could give it.

Thank you,
Christopher Grabowski

I would only write on games I’ve played so wouldn’t be writing a speculative article on an unplayed kickstarter game. I am more than happy to play/review a prototype version should you wish to send one through; however I will always review impartially. Thank you.
