Board games are not just fun, but are amazing collections of ideas that you can interact with like no other form of entertainment. Board games have the power to bring people together, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or ability. In other words, they are the bee’s knees. We host private and public games nights in Toronto. We care about inclusive, accessible and fun gaming experience for all!

Board Games With Scott
Dr. Scott Nicholson was the host of Board Games with Scott, the first YouTube series about board games.
After hosting Board Games with Scott from 2005-2010, he was able to combine his love of games with his job as a library school professor at Syracuse University, and began to study games in libraries. He designed Tulipmania 1637 and Going, Going, Gone! and wrote the book Everyone Plays at the Library. Because of his work with Board Games with Scott, he was invited to give a seminar at MIT, which then led to a visiting professorship, which led to him leaving Syracuse and the US to start a new game design program in Wilfrild Laurier University in Brantford, Ontario, Canada.

R&D Games was formed in 1989 by hobbyist Richard Breese, in order to publish largely his own designs. Richard is an accountant, and designs in his 'spare' time. Richard's sister Juliet was the illustrator on most of the R&D titles until 2016, with Vicki Dalton taking over from then. In recent years R&D Games have released a new title each year at the Essen Spiel, with wider distribution afterwards through co-publishers.

He lives in a house with his partner, his two children, his dog, and his best friend.

In these he collects books, music, games, and the bric-a-brac necessary to make sense of (and protect himself from) life.
