I was interviewed this week for a Newshub report on the rise of boardgaming in New Zeland.

These few lines of mine came from about 30 to 45 minutes of footage and questions.

So cool, congrats!

Bit weird she says "board games are back again", since I don't feel they have ever been away, they just become more mainstream?

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

Under 500 qualifies as casual gamer...

Great news clip btw. Great to see the hobby hitting the mainstream.

I like the line about being able to stop at any time but I don't want to.

I'm in the same boat. I am trying to slow things down as I have been buying games faster than I can play them but there are just so many great releases.

I even went cold turkey and didn't buy a single game in 2015.

Oh well, who wants to die with money in the bank anyway...

<looks at all the upcoming Essen releases>

Several 1,000s of Games for 'moi' that YOU wouldn't even give these the slightest notice upon, whilst their 'uniqueness' MADE these "such"!
It is 9:00 pm there then, and had the 'Telly' underneath of your 'Penguin' atop of that A SPLODE?
