We play lots of games.
Bock’s Game Reviews is focused on providing high-quality content: from written reviews, to live unboxing videos, to high-end preview videos. We never charge for our reviews, only our reviews — so you know it’s content you can trust. As full-time professional graphic designers, we’re most critical of art and design. And, as a couple, we’re always looking to see how well a game plays with two players. We hope you enjoy our reviews — and if you’re a publisher, we’d love to hear from you!
Favorite Games: Lisboa. Orleans. Race for the Galaxy. Terraforming Mars. Quacks.
David works full-time in the board game industry with his wife as Creative Director and Graphic Designer at The Game Bocks (www.thegamebocks.com). He also works at Red Raven Games as Graphic Designer and Web Developer. David went to Purdue University where he got degrees in Visual Communications Design and Creative Writing. He’s worked on games with Cephalofair, Pandasaurus, and more.
He got his start in gaming playing historical miniatures and Battletech, even hosting some games as a teenager at HMGS Little Wars. This faded out of his life as he fell in love with film and video games until he decided to try a board game night and make some new friends. After playing Splendor and Castles of Burgundy, he was obsessed and is now the host of the game night he first came to, happily driving 45 minutes every Tuesday.
David has worked previously at Japanime Games as Marketing and Communications Manager, at Arcane Wonders as Social Media Wizard, and at Grandpa Beck’s Games as Art Director and Graphic Designer. He occasionally works with his dad at Normal Warfare Publications.
Favorite Games: Lisboa. Scythe. Trickerion. Heaven and Ale. Arboretum. The Gallerist.
