She is a dabbler of many things, with her greatest passion being board games, especially teaching board games; thus her motto “reading the rules, so you don’t have to”. She loves the little things in life, like punching the cardboard pieces in the game box, because well, she LOVES components. Bagpiper, ex-stone mason, and fantasy book lover, she is looking to take the board gaming world by storm.

Stéphane Lebeau, The Games Teacher, is a life-long gamer. In his day job working for a large multi-national company, some of his favorite work is done in the class room, where he loves every aspect of being a “trainer”. It’s not surprising that in the world of board games, he derives as much or even more, enjoyment from showing people how to play a game, as he does playing games himself.
