Ryan Newell
Ryan loves board games for many reasons: the strategy and decision-making; the emerging stories; the laughs; and most importantly, they're a great way to enjoy time with family and friends. Ryan has lived in Regina and now Saskatoon, and has made lasting friendships through his love of games in both places.

Jen Rediger
Jen has been a board game lover since she was a young kid, often spending an entire day playing games with her younger brother.  She jumped into the modern world of board gaming in 2018, with Lords of Waterdeep as her gateway game, and hasn't looked back since! Her favourite game as a kid was Careers, and while she still loves to play it, there so many other new faves that she can't name just one as her top game choice! Top Three will have to suffice; Terraforming Mars, Wingspan & Castles of Burgundy.

In the warmer months I love traveling with family, to visit family, all around Canada & occasionally beyond & enjoying being in nature & absorbing as much of it as I can.

Outside of board games, Kristy enjoys camping and pretty much anything... as long as the time is spent with the people she loves and enjoys.

Shane Hadland
Shane has been a dedicated board game fan since he played his first game of Cosmic Encounter back in 2011.  From then on its all about gathering great groups of friends together to share laughs, great beer, friendly trash talk, and immersing into the reality of a different world. When Shane is not thinking about cardboard and wooden pieces, he's juggling his time around enjoying vinyl records, live music, home brewing, camping, fishing, hunting, video gaming, and traveling. Shane is always down to try something new and teach his favorite games.

He likes play a variety of games, from light party games to heavy euros, abstract and thematic, cooperative and competitive. Mick's non-gaming interests include science and science education, cycling, movies/TV, cooking, camping, and spending time with his family.

Jon Hoffman
Jon fell down the board game rabbit hole in 2020 when the blokes at Shut Up & Sit Down talked him into buying Concordia. Since then, his life has been a fever dream of rulebooks and meeples from which he hopes to never wake. Outside of board games, Jon's 10 favourite things are stand-up comedy, Tom Waits, cereal, plotless novels, Judd Apatow, the rain, coffee, Europe, cats, and top 10 lists.
