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.

As a keen board gamer from an early age, Elliott Grimes grew up playing board games with his family. As a teenager a friend introduced him to some more modern games and his love them grew from there – and so did his collection. He likes to play board games whenever he has free time and has begun designing some of his own.
Combining his enjoyment of board games with my interest in art and graphic design seemed like the way to go. He is keen to create more interesting and fun designs that appeal to fellow board game fans.
Elliott is happily married to his wife and gaming companion, Jasmine and lives in Jersey, Channel Islands. Follow him on Instagram @
