We are a group of board game enthusiasts from Indonesia. Our group is professional-wise considerably diverse. You can find a designer, an architect, a food technologist, and many more.

Because of this, we believe that everyone can love board games. Although the continents part us, we have been channelling our passion for board games through this platform since 2018.



During the Spiel Essen 2018, we held our website's premiere. Initiated by the founder trio back then, now we're growing and improving. Thanks to the contributors and the unwavering support from the two retired co-founders, Meeple Eksyen is now standing firmer than ever.



Since the number of board games is steadily growing every year, Meeple Eksyen needs to adapt.

There are other people who share our cause! They take part in this journey and give their best efforts to help this website grows! Of course, we keep accepting people who have the same vision and mission to join us.

Let’s meet our precious creative minds.

Stephan Celebesario Sonny

FOUNDER (since 2018)

I started board games as a form of distraction after losing my Dad. It has levelled up and become an integral part of my life. Writing about board games has been becoming my Zen moment since then.

Angrod Vardamir

REVIEWER (since 2021)

I am a father who plays like there's no tomorrow. People see me as an omni-gamer, I like generally everything and personally dislike some. My role in the community is versatile from collector to rulebook editor, but my position in Ketchup Games as Co-Founder and game designer is absolute.

Filbert Benedictus


(since 2022)

Filbert is, let's say, a rising Sultan in our Indonesian community. His collection is growing, and we are grateful (and happy, too) because more games mean more content to write. — temporary biography by Stephan, LOL

Geoffrey Benawar

REVIEWER (since 2019)

My background in food technology is similar to Stephan's. My reasons to contribute is that I like board games and also own a board game store in Indonesia. You are welcome to visit when you're in town. Currently, I am very interested in Dungeon & Dragons.

REVIEWER (since 2021)

I treat my game as a medium to raise my interest and awareness into certain aspect of life. Hopefully, writing about board games helps to convey what I've learnt to other people — letting them find their joy in this hobby.

Eddy S. Tandya

REVIEWER (since 2019)

Even before making an acquaintance with board games, I've been a gamer for my whole life. Other gamers introduced me to modern board games in 2019. Since then, I am in love with unboxing those boxes and punching the tokens. I manage a board game gallery on Instagram!

Adhitya Mulyono

REVIEWER (since 2021)

With thousands of board games get released annually, I want to provide information to allow others to make informed decisions. To buy or not to buy? That is the question. I hope my writing can help fellow board gamers.

Marcel Leonardo

REVIEWER (since 2021)

I want to spread my board game passion to everyone — that's a reason enough to join this band. Moreover, I want people to know how great KeyForge is. When you are around Depok, Indonesia, visit my board game café!

Nugroho Haryoputro

TRANSLATOR (since 2021)

I’ve only started getting into board games in 2019 when I discovered solo board gaming and PNP (print and play). I play mostly euro games now, but I’m probably as competitive as a quokka (they’re pretty chill).
