Contributor: Chaz Marler

Video Reviewer, Segment Contributor

Chaz Marler has had a passion for playing and creating board games for as long as he can remember. He created his first board game in second grade, which was a simple dinosaur themed roll-and-move game. It didn't win the Spiel des Jahres that year, but still, he was hooked on playing and tinkering with board games from that moment on.

Chaz has been running his own YouTube channel, Pair Of Dice Paradise, since 2013. In 2016, he joined The Dice Tower as a contributor, bringing his unique blend of board game reviews, critique and commentary with him.

His videos often center on discussing different aspects of the board game hobby, his favorite component upgrades, and his latest thrift store finds.

Chaz can also be contacted on Twitter @DiceParadise. His tweets may contain the occasional pun.
