Peter H. Møller
The big lovable teddybear behind Tabletop Together. He’s the “big bad” editor, but also does reviews. While he’s actually very bad a most games, he still enjoys getting beaten by his friends. He’s mostly into euro games, but he thinks theme and visual presentation plays a big role in games. He lives in Aarhus (Denmark) with his wife and dachshund Spock (yes he’s a Trekkie).

The reviewer with the largest Japanese and Asian games collection. Always on the lookout for a new original and/or quirky game idea or theme. He likes low luck games with a high level of interaction. If the game can be finished in 90 minutes it’s a big plus. He lives in Copenhagen, Denmark with his wife and two children who aren’t named after Star Trek characters, but he still loves trek.

Peter van der Helm
A boardgamer from the Netherlands, mostly into playing euro games. But has broadened his vision lately. Picked up a starter deck from Decipher’s Star Trek Customizable Card Game in 1995. That got him hooked on non-computer gaming. The game Princes of Florence was a great hit in his game group around the turn of the millennium and he played it almost every Wednesday for the good part of a year. After he got married he plays lots of games with his wife Tineke. Who likes games too! They play Ticket to Ride, Roma, San Juan, Stone Age and Patchwork regularly.

A fervent instagrammer that took on the challenge to capture the beauty of boardgames in words too. Adding a feminine touch to the Tabletop Together crew. Though rather a bad boy at heart instead of a polished princess. Always up for games that offer dice placement and -manipulation. Undeterred to practice the latter on players too ;)! She lives in Antwerp – Belgium, sharing her everyday life and cardboard adventures with the best boyfriend. Allergic to cats and dogs, might get a goldfish.
Favourite mechanism(s): Dice placement, Real time, Cooperative
Favourite theme(s): Space exploration, Industry / Manufacturing, Asian
Favourite game(s): Alien Frontiers, Manhattan Project (Energy Empire), Ghost Stories
A native American, he moved to Germany in 2013 and his love for boardgames has been on the rise ever since. A teacher by trade, he loses most games as soon as he plays it a second time with people he has taught. He loves playing new games as often as possible, so he actually has a chance to win.
