MEET THE TEAM BEHIND THE GAMES
Our Amazing Customers!
Thank you so much to all of our amazing customers.
Because of your support we are able to do what we do.
-Thank you so much for everything!
Honestly, we’re not sure if John is even human. He might be a cyborg. Not only does he manage our accounts and payments, keeping on top of everything, he’s also a tooth fairy (aka dentist)!
Given how busy he is, we’re suspicious he might have a secret time machine. When he’s not time travelling to appointments, he’s training for the incredibly intense Ironman Triathlon. (Yep, the cyborg theory stands.)
FAVOURITE BOARD GAME: DEFINITELY NOT SECRET HITLER
A manager of many talents, Bao not only works purchasing, he also takes care of staff wellbeing and makes the executive calls (he's like, always on the phone).
He's a real sassmaster behind the scenes but always makes sure staff are safe and stocked up on spicy noodles.
Has been known to offer shots of hot sauce.
FAVOURITE GAME - POWER GRID
If you've come into our retail store or seen our weekly livestreams, you've probably seen Jon and his beard.
With his inexorably captivating sales pitches that snag even the staff member's attention, Jon has mastered recommending games. When he's not sitting in our retail play space playing Magic on a Friday night or chatting with you about his latest favourite board game, he's guarding his secret Magic cupboard to which only he has the key.
FAVOURITE GAME - WELCOME TO...
Matthew is the mind behind the newsletters, the website and Gameology's social media platforms (yes, all of them).
You might have seen his lovely face in our weekly livestreams, but if you've ever been on literally anything Gameology-related, you've seen the fruits of his labour in the slick graphics and snappy sales posts.
He once wore a Charmander onsesie for a Pokemon Video(now that's dedication).
FAVOURITE GAME - AFTERMATH
The Pirate Queen of the Gameology Support Squad, Lauren looks through her spyglass into the future for potential pre-order delays, sweeping the seas for solutions to skyrocket your shopping satisfaction and bring you the best customer experience.
Her weakness? She can't pass up a game with pretty artwork and wooden pieces. Case in point below.
FAVOURITE GAME - EVERDELL
As part of the Support Squad and social media team, Alli is one of the lovely voices you'll hear on the phone, over email and on our social media posts!
A skilled Dungeon Master and member of Gameology’s Magic Community, you can find her in the Gameology retail store on Friday Nights playing Commander.
She lives off a diet of Red Bull and always looks tired. Definitely not a weeb.
FAVOURITE GAME - RED DRAGON INN
A member of the Support Squad, Amanda responds to your emails and calls (she also wrote these bios)! You know she’s in the office when you can hear her nails flying across the keyboard! She is too short to reach the top shelves of the warehouse, has more keychains than keys and eats way too many noodles.
FAVOURITE GAME - DOMINION
Managing thousands of square metres of board games, TCG, sleeves and accessories isn’t easy, but Shaun does it all with a smile on his face.
Keeping track of stock levels, overseeing all the products that enter or leave these grand roller doors, the warehouse is Shaun’s domain over which he rules.
In his spare time you can find him at the footy or admiring his collection of dragons.
FAVOURITE GAME - SMASH UP
The quiet mastermind, Benny is the one who ensures your board games, your TCG, your gaming accoutrement, are all packed perfectly and shipped swiftly! When he’s not overseeing the packing of the literal thousands of parcels we ship out every day, he’s driving the forklift up and down the warehouse occasionally playing fun tunes on the horn. In his spare time, he enjoys playing DOTA, FIFA and NBA 2k.
FAVOURITE GAME - MONOPOLY
When the thousands of products we receive each week come rolling through the roller doors, Gene is one of the people who ensures these products get stocked safely into their new homes. He likes working in Receiving so he gets to hold all the latest games before anyone else. Loves painting monsters and games with lots of minis.
FAVOURITE GAME - SCYTHE
We have the largest and broadest selection of games in Australia that meet almost every want and need! Want a game we don’t currently stock? Get in touch and let us know! Some of our best-sellers have originated from our community recommendations!
