Hi! I'm Ellie, I'm from Portland, Oregon in the US. I have loved board games since I was a kid, and worked weekends at a game shop when I was just out of high school.

My husband doesn't like to play as much as I do, so I have been looking into online platforms and Happy Meeple was mentioned in one of my Facebook groups. I have two kids who do love to play games with me, thankfully!

My favorite games tend to be gateway and filler games, which is all I have time for these days. Some of my favorites are Carcasonne, Lost Cities, Quarto, Kingdomino, Patchwork, and Sushi Go.

I'm new to Happy Meeple and loving it! I do have to agree about the gender-specific pronoun. Often board gaming can feel unwelcoming to women and something as simple as using gender-neutral "they/their" would go a long way in showing inclusivity, especially when it comes up regularly in the tutorials. I see more and more instruction books that come with board games using non gender-specific pronouns, even in complicated games.

Worth looking into, if you're not able to change existing tutorials, you might consider it for future games.
