The Genesis of a Board GAMER

Hello, budding board gamers! I am Víctor M. Martínez Valero, the fervent enthusiast behind Board Game Newbie. My voyage into the captivating world of board gaming commenced during the challenging times of the Covid-19 pandemic. As countries closed their borders and the world retreated indoors, my insatiable desire for exploration and connecting with others needed a new outlet. It was amidst this global pause that I discovered the boundless universe of board games, which not only bridged social distances but also provided a stimulating playground for the mind.

A New Avenue of Exploration
No longer could I traverse through the picturesque landscapes of Europe, a journey many of you followed on my Spanish travel blog, Vivir Europa. However, the strategic landscapes of board games opened up a new domain of exploration. Each game became a venture into unknown territories, fostering social interaction, creative thinking, and mental agility—all from the safety and comfort of home.

Community: The Heartbeat of Gaming
Board gaming swiftly turned into more than just a pastime. It emerged as a robust medium to foster a sense of community, camaraderie, and shared joy amidst a period of physical isolation. It was a realm where strategic minds could meet, interact, and celebrate victories, big or small.
