About Me: I know how to play a ridiculous number of card and board games, and I'm terrible at almost all of them. More recently, I've been spreading my incompetance to some RPG's. This upcoming year, I'll be running a Shadowrun 5e campaign. I'm also a judge for Magic: the Gathering, so if you have any rules queries, shoot them in my direction.

Random Factoid: Unpaid Wizzard Intern
My love for RPGs started with video games. Then some of my friends who enjoyed RPG video games and I got together to play D&D 3.5 . It escalated from there on and now I am secretary of a society dedicated to tabletop gaming. Some of my biggest interests include hidden role games, science fiction, comic books and animation.

Random Factoid: Probably the cheekiest member of GameSoc
I originaly joined GameSoc for RPGs, and before coming to gamesoc i had only ever DM'ed. Then I discovered that other board games are actually good and never looked back. Also i will be running some kind
of cyberpunky/post apocalyptic RPG this year (probably on D20 if you care about that kind of thing).

I have only recently gotten into boardgames in a serious way and my bank balance is the one to have suffered most. Currently I have mostly short cards games to offer but I’ve also recently gotten into Magic the Gathering and the tabletop game Malifaux. I’m also happy to help out RPG’s as I’ve been a DM in the past and shall be putting on a Judge Dredd RPG in the next academic year. If you ever need help with anything organisation or room booking related just let me know :)

Random Factoid: I find memes unironically funny.
Prior to GameSoc I owned 5 games and had never played an RPG, and now I own 50 games and am the offical RPG dude. I love boardgames and try to avoid doing anything else with my time, but when forced to, my other interests include MOBAs, games development and watching cartoons.

Right before i started at Surrey, i grew interest in board games from watching Polaris' Table Flip. I signed up for GameSoc instantly after discovering it and with the Society's large selection of games and events, my love of board games grew (and my bank account taking a few hits) as well as making loads of new friends to play, talk and hang out with, GameSoc has been one of my more enjoyable parts of first year (as lame as that sounds ;P )
