I’m Rowdy van Lieshout, a board gaming Dutchman, living in Huis ter Heide (Utrecht) with my son, Esben, and my girlfriend, Sélène.

I play board and card games almost daily. Just to relax and have fun. With my girlfriend, my friends, on game days at the community centre and once in while I play a solo game as well.

Board games are fun!

On this website I’ll write about the games I’ve played and hopefully explain why I do or do not like them.

Have fun reading my reviews and let me know if you like them (or not).


My name is Sélène, girlfriend of Rowdy, mother of Esben. Living in Huis ter Heide, The Netherlands.

As a board gamer’s girlfriend, it is impossible for me to avoid playing games multiple times a week. And you know what? I wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.

So most games I play together with Rowdy. Occasionally I play with friends or at Utrecht Game Day.

I hope you enjoy my contributions to asaboardgamer.com!


Do you want to contact As a Board Gamer? Do you have something to tell me about my reviews? Positive or negative. No cursing please.

Do you have a game you’d like to send me to review? I’d probably love to play and review your (new) game! Some board game related news you’d like me to know about?

Or something else entirely, please use the Contact Form or comment below the articles. Many thanks!

You can also find me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+, BoardGameGeek and you can contact me at asaboardgamer@gmail.com.

  1. Hello Rowdy,

    Hope you’re having a good friday!

    Is there a way (an e-mail address) to send you a press release and some materials about a game I have designed? That is, if you are at all interested in receiving e-mails of that kind.

    Best regards,

  2. Hi Rowdy,

    I really enjoy reading your articles! Keep up the good work!
    Work hard, play hard….
