Open Seat Gaming was the brainchild of Marti Wormuth and Scott Bowen. Their idea was to make a blog that focused on ensuring everyone that wants to join the board gaming hobby knows they have a seat at the table, no matter their experience, their background, their race, their beliefs, their orientation, or their gender. This has become a board gaming blog that focuses on all sorts of gaming, from solo to party games, dry Euros to thematic Ameritrash games, and everything in between.
