My favourite song at the moment:-------KICKSTARTER GIRL-------->
Hi, my name is Mandy. I'm a kickstarter addict. I think in my gaming group, you can call me the Kickstarter Girl I'm always introducing kickstarter games to my friends. I really enjoy supporting small/independent companies/designers with unique ideas to try help make their games/dreams come to fruition.
Helping designers & independent companies =
I grew up and found that I fell in love with playing Risk, D&D, building models, computers, collecting comics, playing MUDs and dabbled a bit in Warhammer 40k. All the normal stuff a girl does.
------BOARD GAMER ENABLER-------->
After moving to Japan, I joined up with 2 D&D groups. Then about 7 years later my friend Dan introduced me to a game of Bang in April 2011. Then it started my board gaming addiction. I bought over 50 games in one month once. Yes, I am now a BG addict.
It's now out of control. I buy multiple copies of games, and have started spreading the addiction by giving away games, to entice more people into the hobby. Yes, some call me the BG enabler.
In 2011 I started hosting game days, and we ended up playing once every weekend. I didn't expect it to be that popular. Now I organize a couple of public game days with different groups. I've made it my mission to help promote board gaming in Japan and to try get more people into the hobby. I've made a lot of amazingly, talented and fun friends, and gaming has made Japan feel like home to me.
-------WHAT I LIKE-------------??
I like to laugh. I like to make my friends laugh. I like to make my friends happy that's why I love introducing my friends to board gaming. I love sharing my games, and I buy games with my friend's interests in mind. If you come to a game day, you'll usually find me teaching a game. I LOVE gifting games. This hobby has been bringing us closer together and we get to meet more often. It can get lonely working abroad, and this is one way everyone can laugh, have fun, make friends, and enjoy their stay in Japan.
-------THE TYPE OF GAMER-----------??
I am the type of player who will play nearly any type of game and pretty much love it. I don't play to win. I've come to realize I'm not so good at attack-y games, but if people want to play them I'm in. I play mainly to have fun and enjoy everyone's company. But as a warning I have severe OCD heheh.
So without further ado, let's laugh, have fun and play games.
