Hello, curious!

Hi, I’m Emily!

I’ve been playing tabletop games since 2008 when a friend introduced me to Dungeons & Dragons and Munchkin!

I started My Kind of Meeple as a place to nerd out about tabletop games.

But the website quickly became more than that.

Now I focus on creating helpful articles for tabletop nerds like me and for people new to the hobby.

I talk about games to anyone who will listen, attend gaming conventions, playtest prototypes, host regular gaming sessions, and design games in my free time.

The tabletop community is wonderful and I’m so proud to be a part of it!


I’m currently rolling a Wizard called Molly in D&D 5e.

Board games

I play what I’m in the mood for! Everything from Gloomhaven to Dixit.


Painting minis is relaxing! I enjoy Warhammer 40k and Gorkamorka!

Game design

I love to design games! I’m always working on something!

Radio Appearances

I’ve spoken about board games on several radio stations!

BBC Radio Berkshire

BBC Radio Sheffield

BBC Radio Three Counties

Fun & Games!

How You Can Support

I spend a lot of time and care creating the most helpful articles.

Each Gloomhaven Build Guide is around 9k words and takes the equivalent of 5 days full-time work to write, photo and format!

The website has some costs like hosting, domain name and software to keep it fast, secure and user friendly.

If my articles help you, I’d be honoured if you’d say, “Thanks!” with a £3 coffee on Ko-fi.
