About the Author Maurice Fitzgerald

Maurice is a Jersey boy who moved to Texas more than a decade ago where he resides with his wife and two four legged kids, er um dogs in the Dallas area. Gaming has always been a big part of his life. In the late 90’s and early 2000’s, Maurice was an editor for the old Xtreme Network covering video games for the now defunct Mplayer Network. Prior to that, he was a video game reviewer at where first person shooters, real-time strategy and armor simulations were his specialty, great fits for a United States Marine Corps veteran. Along the way, he dabbled with some board and miniatures games but the bulk of his entertainment continued to be video games until Maurice found the mech heavy combat miniatures game CAV by Reaper Miniatures in the mid 2000’s and that quickly supplanted Battletech as his mecha game of choice. After spending time as a Black Lightning demo team member for the CAV line, Maurice went on to co-author one of the games supplements, War For Sale before the line ended its run. Known as either Maurice or Moe, you can find him lurking the halls of Board Game Geek, Google+ and Kickstarter always with an eye out for new games and interesting projects to review and back. Maurice loves solitaire games with a military or sci-fi theme and of course, zombies! He enjoys coop games with his wife because he likes to win together rather than getting beat by his casual gamer wife repeatedly. He’s even convinced her to play an occasional Pathfinder adventure along with board games at his local FLGS as often as he can. When not playing board games, Maurice continues to be involved with his first gaming love, hockey, as a color commentator for a minor professional hockey team.
