Man Vs Meeple

Man Vs Meeple Video Review Series by Drakkenstrike

My initial introduction into the world of gaming began at a very early age for me, primarily with digital entertainment in the late 70's, early 80's (Atari 2600, Commodore 64, Colecovision, etc). I have been predominantly a video gamer my entire life, and have only dabbled in table top RPG's and Board Games throughout my years. I still remember my first meaningful Board Game being Dungeon!, and it was captivating to say the least.

As I grew older and went to college, my interests gradually shifted to CCG's and TCG's. Like most people, Magic was my first real venture into that style of analog gaming, but that soon gave way to others like Middle-Earth, Shadowrun, Guardians, and Netrunner to name a few.

Then came the big two for me, the Star Wars CCG by Deciper, and it's replacement, The Lord of the Rings TCG. They were both all consuming and left an undeniable impression on me that remains today.

Now, I try to balance my time between Electronic Entertainment and my love for Cardboard. I am still searching for my perfect 10 rated game in the analog world. I don't think that day will ever come until I find a suitable replacement for The Lord of the Rings TCG which I miss to this day.

I am also what I would consider to be an overly protective Consumer and Collector of games, one who strives to keep all of his Boxes, Inserts, and Components in the best possible conditions as I can. For that, I often find myself utilizing several sources of outside materials, including Plano Boxes, Card Sleeves, Laminated Player Aids and Battle Foam to name just a few.

My current project revolves around my deep-seated interests in Game Components and how they affect the purchasing decisions of gamers everywhere. The continuing need to find the coolest games and brightest ideas in the marketplace and then share those discoveries with the community in High Definition is how I try to differentiate myself from the crowd. Through my ongoing Components Breakdown Videos, I hope to provide invaluable visual information and stimulation to gamers who enjoy all the sum of a games parts.
