Jacob Coon, Page 2

Jacob has been playing games on and off for most of his life, but it wasn’t until he moved to Germany from the US in 2013 that he really started getting into the hobby. Now he plays games whenever he gets the chance and researches games to add to his collection.
Jacob writes articles and reviews, some of which have been featured on IndieCardboard.com. He enjoys playing all types of games, but finds solitaire games hitting the table more than most. Outside of the hobby Jacob is an instructional designer and former teacher.
