All About GamerChris


Welcome to!

Blog_Picture_1I’m Chris Norwood, and this blog is all about my gaming life.

More specifically, I’m into “unplugged” games, such as boardgames and role-playing games. And by boardgames, I’m not talking about Monopoly or Scrabble, but instead about what I’ll be calling “modern” boardgames.

I’ve been a hobby gamer for over 25 years now, and my main focus over the last several years has been in the area of these modern boardgames. I organize a gaming group (the Hypermind BoardGamers) that meets weekly at our local game store, and I spend a lot of time playing, reading, listening to podcasts, writing and talking about games. Since April 2007, I’ve been giving reports about games that I play, writing reviews, making recommendations, and discussing theory and strategy here at, I started the Exploring Games podcast over 2 years ago, and I don’t have any plans of stopping any time soon!

I do have a personal life, of course, even though I don’t discuss it all that much here. I’ve been married for over 18 years now to Gwen, and we have two beautiful little girls, Samantha (age 6) and Corinne (age 3). I’m also a strong Christian and am active in my local church.

But I love games, and I hope that my passion and knowledge about them helps you to rekindle and/or fan the flames of your own love for them as well. Feel free to read and comment about anything that you find here, or contact me directly via email at

Happy Gaming!

  1. Good Morning,

    I’m running a charity event for our local community hospital and came across your board game Acute Care. I’d like to get a hold of a few copies to play as a tournament. We are a small gaming store so I’d also like to get set up with your distributor to keep copies on our shelves. Can you send me more information about where to get a hold of this game?
