About Board Game Squad

Board Game Squad, founded by Paul Shapiro, is a blog and podcast dedicated to the vibrant world of board games.

We aim to provide high-quality reviews of the latest and greatest games, perspectives on old favorites, opinions and thought pieces about the hobby, industry news, game previews, strategy discussions, and so much more.

Board gaming is very much about the people who play them and the experiences that they create. So, join the Squad and we’ll forge memories at the table together.

Game Knight

Game Knight symbolized those of us who can’t stop thinking about his next Game Night. He’s always reading about strategy games and as a friend, is a great resource for figuring out which game you should play next.

Mr. Dice Guy

Mr. Dice Guy is your resident Mr. Nice Guy. He wants to ensure that everyone around the table is having fun, above all else. He’s fine with a hint of randomness.
