Hi! We’re Game Box Monthly, a group of gamers and geeks of all different stripes, but all working to bring the best possible tabletop game experience directly to our subscribers’ doorsteps. Brian started Game Box Monthly in the summer of 2014 with a couple of Reddit posts and an ugly logo. From there we’ve grown to thousands of subscribers, tens of thousands of shipments, and deliveries to every state and every continent. It’s been a crazy ride but we’re still just getting started.
Our mission is to introduce people to their next favorite game and help them connect with each other the good old fashioned way – around the table, laughing and talking, and rediscovering the original social network. To do that, we’re going to find and champion the best tabletop games and content the hobby has to offer. And make sure people have the best possible experience when they gather around the table. Join us?
Brian started Game Box in 2014 with no money and no experience in starting a business. Miraculously, we’re still here on the far side of three years. When Brian isn’t spinning a hundred different plates at once, he’s….well he doesn’t really do anything besides Game Box stuff. But sometimes you can find him walking around the neighborhood playing PokemonGo and someday he’s going to get back to his own board game designs.
Jake is a talented graphic designer and illustrator. He’s designed the logos and branding for dozens of companies and was very polite to not laugh at Brian’s initial Game Box logo when he asked Jake to create a better one. When he’s not creating material for Game Box, you can find him playing Telltale’s Walking Dead on his Playstation, watching professional wrestling, or managing his podcast network.
Sam spearheads the effort to find the best tabletop games out there, as well as staying in regular contact with the many publishers and distributors that we work with. When she’s not play testing games for Game Box, you can find her playing Dungeons and Dragons as a high functioning alcoholic tiefling bard. Or working on cosplay and planning her annual “Feast of Thrones” party for each season of “Game of Thrones.”
Chief Financial Officer
Paul is a Wharton MBA and teaches finance at Pepperdine University. He was formerly the CFO for Giant Studios, the company that pioneered the motion capture technology behind games like Halo and Call of Duty (oh yeah and movies like Lord of the Rings and Avatar). These days, when he’s not teaching or guarding the bank account, he explores the AR/VR scene and develops his own financial projections software, EZ Numbers, which has helped startups raise over $1 billion.
Katie handles all of Game Box’s operational p’s and q’s. She processes orders, maintains inventory records, and generally gets all the little nuts and bolts from here to there. When she’s not meticulously picking her way through endless spreadsheets, you can find her in the pool or hiking through…okay you got us! Katie’s actually the outdoorsy type. But she’s super nerdy about organization and spreadsheets. And hell, none of the rest of us want to deal with them.
Analisa is our indefatigable one-woman customer service department. She mans the email trenches and answers the questions and solves the problems that come flying in daily. If you ever need to reach out to us with a question or issue, Analisa is the one you’ll be talking to. And you couldn’t be in better hands. When she’s not behind the keyboard, you can find her in her Hogwarts robes (Gryffindor) or on stage at Disneyland teaching Jedi younglings how to fight the Dark Side.
