Tabletop Tales



These ten fantastic short stories all share the common theme of tabletop gaming, and they are all written by talented writers, who also happen to be gamers. The stories are, however, all very different in subject, style, and tone. Some will make you laugh out loud, others will have you nervously turning the page to find out what happens next.

Available in paperback from Amazon.


Ticket to Carcassonne


“Full of good humor and lots of interesting comments and strategy. Probably the best book about games ever.”

~ Alan R Moon (designer of Ticket to Ride)

This is an entertaining history of modern board games, told by an enthusiastic gamer who just loves talking about his hobby. Ticket to Carcassonne focuses on five gateway games in particular, but also includes many more recommendations, and tips for getting the most out of game nights. It is aimed at people fairly new to board gaming.

Also available in paperback from Amazon.
