Hello, I’m Moe Tousignant, the Tabletop Bellhop, your Cardboard Concierge. You can find me at tabletopbellhop.com

What is the Tabletop Bellhop?

The Tabletop Bellhop is my effort to put my gaming experience to use for the benefit of the gaming community.

The core concept is a question and answers session. A Dear Abby for tabletop gaming. I want to use what I know to help make your game night better.

I want to put my years of gaming experience to use improving that community. I want to help people find new games to play. I want to help people make informed decisions about their game collections. I want to help organize game nights for maximum fun and entertainment. I want to inform people about new and hot titles. I want to save people money. I want to help you and your game group have more fun doing that thing we all love: gaming.

How can the Cardboard Concierge help you and your game group?

I’m here to answer questions and offer gaming advice. I get questions from the gaming community and then answer those questions publicly.

First on the Tabletop Bellhop Blog, then we will discuss the topic on the Tabletop Bellhop Live stream on Twtich. The next Tuesday an edited version of that video is released on Youtube. Finally, an even more edited and streamlined version is released as a podcast. In this way no matter how you like to consume your tabletop gaming media we have you covered.

If you have a gaming related question, you bet there are others out there that have wondered the same thing. In addition, there are a ton of things that you just never think of until they come up. I want to get your questions, give you my best answer (including doing the research needed if I don’t know the answer off hand) and then share the answer with the community for the benefit of all of our gaming groups.

What do I get out of it?

Number one is growing and improving the gaming hobby. Getting more people out gaming and having people have more fun when doing it.

I also admit that I’m trying to make a living out of this. Pay the bills, buy groceries, and provide for my family. I lost my longtime job in the automotive industry in July of 2018, this gave me a chance to think about my life and what I’m doing with it. My wife and I discussed it and thought now may be a great chance to see if I can turn my love of gaming into an actual career.

Lastly: I’m hoping to learn something too. I’ve been gaming for a long time, but that doesn’t mean I know everything. Heck, I’ll never know everything.

My qualifications?

I’ve been involved in gaming as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting on my dad’s lap while he painted miniatures for Dungeons & Dragons. Every new year was rung in playing Coup D’etat and Mah Jong with friends of the family. Gaming was part of everyday life in the Tousignant household.

Over the years I’ve accumulated a huge number of games and game plays. I’ve played thousands of games of all types and genres. I’ve also had the opportunity to review, playtest, edit and help design games. I can honestly say that I’m an award-winning published RPG designer. I am also an accredited RPG playtester. As for board game design, I’m not sure if my name is printed anywhere but I have had my hand in that pot as well.

Gaming and promoting the hobby is what I do. It’s part of who I am. It’s always been a part of me and that’s something that will never change. I am a gamer. I am a game ambassador. I am your Tabletop Bellhop. Now, how can I help improve your game night?
