My name is Jason Paterson. I am an IT professional with a formal education in journalism, and art and design.

I’ve been played boardgames all my life but I began the more specific journey of wargaming in the mid-2010’s, which appeals both to my love of history and minutiae. My aim with this website is to write about the games I feel strongly about, and to explore the history they draw from through other forms of media. By doing this, I hope to obtain a deeper understanding of the subject matter and maybe introduce them to a few people in the process.

This is my home on the web, but you can also find me on Bluesky, Mastodon, Reddit, or Boardgamegeek. I’m always interested in doing game reviews so if you are a publisher and you think your game would work well for me, I would love to hear about it and perhaps feature it here. Head over to the Contact page and let me know all about it.

If you’re a reader and you just enjoy what I do, consider Donating to the cause!
