Board games have exploded in popularity in the last few years, and they’re more popular than many people think (did you know that board games outsell video games in the US?)
That popularity has created a new generation of board game enthusiasts, and DiceGlory is here to help. Our mission is to be the best source of independent information about board games, so that any board game player — no matter how new to the hobby — can feel like they’re part of a growing community.
About Mike Parsley
I’m Mike Parsley, an aspiring game designer, and board game reviewer. I love playing board games, and I love talking about them. This is where I’ll share my opinions on games I love, games I hate, or occasionally even games I just don’t understand.
I was a late bloomer with board games. I’ve been a fan for just over a year now, but I’ve been a gamer my whole life. In fact, I didn’t discover the joy of board games until I was in college. I was a pretty isolated kid, and my social skills weren’t all that developed. I had a few friends from school and a few more through the church youth group, but I was pretty lonely. In my youth, I was into all those typical things that teenage boys are into, but I really had no idea who I was. My mother kept trying to get me into the family business, and I really had no interest in that. Board games become my way of venting my frustrations about the work my mother was trying to get me to do. Board games still a place where I could be myself and just do things I liked doing.
There are numerous websites and blogs dedicated to the topic, but I believe there is a need for a professional community that can provide both entertainment and content for the games enthusiast who is not sure how to start as well as for the hardened veteran who wants to share some of their hard-earned experience.
