About Travel Buddy Games
Hello new friend. Thanks for coming to check out Travel Buddy Games! I’m Joshua Lobkowicz and Travel Buddy Games is the merging of two of my greatest passions: Travel and Gaming.
From my earliest years I loved traveling. Road trips and vacations with my family always got me excited to see new places, try new foods, and have new experiences. I love travelling still and that youthful excitement over discovering a new place has never left me.
I have also always had a love of gaming. As a child it was Monopoly, Chess, Heroquest, Omega Virus, and Clue. As a teen it was Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons. These days it’s designer games like Catan, Innovation, or myriad other titles you can find at boardgamegeek.com.
For the past five years, I have worked as a professional board game developer for Grey Fox Games – a medium sized board game publisher. I love finding great new designs and helping them shine before bringing them to eager players worldwide!
Travel Buddy Games is my way of bringing the world of travel to gamers and introduce the world of games to travelers.
Every Travel Buddy Games title will fit 3 basic criteria: small enough to travel with easily, simple enough to play with new friends you meet while traveling, and thematically tied to an interesting or exotic travel destination.
Travel and Gaming are both, for me, inherently social. And some of my fondest memories consist of staying at a hostel and sitting down in the common area with a deck of cards, making new friends, and chatting about the corners of the world we come from and the destinations we seek to go to.
I want Travel Buddy Games to give you those kinds of experiences. I want my games to show you parts of the world you haven’t seen, and make you want to see them in person.
And when you go, I would love for you to take your Travel Buddy Games with you. Bring them to your hostel. Play with the new friends you make on your travels and share the joys of socializing with fellow travelers over a game.
Most importantly, I hope to see you out there in the great, wide world. We can tell each other about the places we love and inspire one another to go and see them ourselves.
