Welcome to the Herd!

We are Kendra and Bryan, a traveling duo that first bonded over our love of board games. We met in Oxford, UK (literally) during a group game of Avalon. From there, we built an incredible collection of games that are fun, challenging, collaborative, and exciting.

We’ve tried tons of board games out there and have had endless hours of fun together. Gaming brought us together and helped us make friends all over the world. We’re so glad you’re here and that you’ve decided to play some games with us.

Why Game Cows?

Cows are social creatures and love to be around and interact with others. A happy cow will frolic and play with anyone. Plus, Kendra just really likes cows for some reason. They’re also super cute.

Game Cows was dreamed up by our favorite pastime, board games. We love the social interaction, critical thinking, and competitiveness of board games, but without the family-destroying dynamics of a “friendly” game of Monopoly.

Both of us grew up playing a ton of board games with our families when we were kids, and that continued well after we were adults. Whenever we go out we always have a game hidden away in case the fancy takes us.

Our favorite things include: traveling, trying craft beer, playing games, and making friends along the way.

Our Philosophy

We believe that social gaming is an important aspect of our lives and we wanted to share it with you. Playing games is a great way to make friends, spend quality time, and to challenge yourself. Board games are the original social media that we grew up with and we want to spread the love.

What We Offer

Here at Game Cows we provide in-depth content on new, classic, and yet-to-be-released board games and tabletop games of all kinds. Our content is meant to be informative and is based on our own personal opinions and experience.
