If you're here, you're our kind of Meeple.
Boardgamergifts.com was founded by Michele Prandi and Andrew Ressler (hi, that’s me) in November of 2020. We’re long time partners who over the years have developed a passion for the board gaming hobby. We are the creators behind the social media / YouTube channel Board Game Crawler and the South Florida based meetup group Crawl: Board Game Meetups.
How it all started
When the Pandemic brought our meetups to a screeching halt, we knew we had to keep our momentum going somehow. So we started our 100 days of board games video campaign. Yes, 100 videos over 100 days. It was rough. After the campaign we started planning our next creative project and thought naturally “Hey, we should get some cool board game shirts to wear in our next videos!” After scouring the web and ordering some pretty awesome shirts we realized something. There weren't a lot of options out there and half of them just weren’t our style. That's when the light bulbs went off. So we started designing, researching, and designing some more, and now you're here!
Every design is created by my wife Michele or myself and has a connection or story behind it for us. They are created with the same passion and care that you’ve come to expect from the tabletop hobby. Our promise is this. We only create things we love, with love, for the love of board gaming. Our products are for board game enthusiasts by board game enthusiasts and whether you're buying a shirt for yourself, or a mug for a friend, we know it's something you can show off with pride.
The future of Boardgamergifts.com
Our goal is to never stop expanding. Whether it's new product options or hiring new artists we don’t ever want to stop growing our brand. New designs will be added monthly (contact us if you have any requests) so consider bookmarking our website to check back regularly. This isn't your average e-commerce store with the same 3 shirts listed for a year. This is a part of the dream Michele and I have to become full time in the board game industry and you can bet we’ll get there. Even if it's one t-shirt at a time.
