Regina & Rhonda

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.

  1. I've actually been working on a new weekly series on my blog that features ideas for games to Gift or to get your yourself. I've recently done a post on my Top 10 Favorite Board Games of all time. This list has a ton of great gamer-friendly style tabletop board games including some hard to find out of print games too. I've also done articles on my favorite card games too. Seems like we may have slightly similar tastes, so be sure to check out the ones that I love as well. Great show!

  2. What a great collection of games in your list! It was funny – I was going to mention diplomacy in this episode and didn't because I wasn't sure how many people had played it. Talk about a ruthless game! Love it!

    Thanks for checking out the show and sharing a link! I will be checking your site for more recommendations. 🙂

    PS I totally own Hero's Quest.
