newtwittertempprofilepicThanks for visiting!  My name is Ed Marriott.  Boards & Barley is my blog for all the things I do related to board gaming and beer.  I am a game designer.  I am a home brewer.  I like to drink beer when I play board games.  These two things go hand in hand for me.

I designed a game that is published by Tasty Minstrel Games called Scoville.

Here at Boards & Barley I try to post content regularly. Usually on Mondays I post the Monday Brews where I recap the beer and board games I enjoyed the previous week. Sometimes I write Brewology 101 articles that can help rookie brewers (like myself) know a little bit more about brewing. More often I write articles about game design that are hopefully helpful to aspiring designers.

If there’s something you want me to write about, just let me know!

You can check me out on Twitter (@EdPMarriott) or BoardGameGeek.com (username: ralphthesquirrel).  Let me know if you have any questions.
