Hey now! My name is Nick Meenachan. While I’m originally from Youngstown, OH, currently I reside in Delray Beach, FL. I still miss the snow, no matter how many times people tell me Florida’s weather is the best (aside from the occasional apocalyptic hurricane). I’ve worked in printing almost my entire adult life. I currently work at a printing/marketing firm in Deerfield Beach, where I do sales and production.
I’ve been reviewing games over on YouTube under the moniker Board Game Brawl for almost two years now. In that relatively short amount of time, the response I’ve gotten has been huge, and the channel has grown tremendously. And I don’t just do reviews; there’s top ten lists, unboxings, previews, live plays and Q&A sessions, and even a new series about my other geeky hobbies. Check out Board Game Brawl for all of this scintillating content and more!
I review cuz games are fun. Oh, but also, I’ve played quite a lot of them, and I feel that I can analyze them pretty well. And really, I just love talking about them at length. I want to express my passion for gaming, and hope that it draws more people to the hobby.
I make my reviews very informal and casual. I’ll give a brief overview of how the game works, then talk about the things that I like and dislike about each part of the game (theme, components, and mechanics). While I will go into great detail about some aspects of the game, others I will just briefly touch on. The whole idea is to get across my feelings on the game and who it might appeal to aside from myself.
I play games with my main gaming group (also called Board Game Brawl). I will play a game several times, until I feel that I have a good handle on how the game plays and I’ve explored all major facets of it. Before I shoot my review, I’ll go over the rules one more time, and make mental notes of everything I want to touch on.
