About us

You really want to find out more about us. Ahhh, that's so sweet. Wait a minute, you're not a stalker, are you?

Casual Girl Gamer is Tasha, a London-based American who is so addicted to casual games (Qbeez, World of Goo, Loops of Zen, Braid, the list is endless) that her husband threatened to book her into The Priory. But the prospect of being separated from her Xbox and laptop traumatized her so much that hubbie took pity, and instead built her a blog in the hope that a worldwide audience would shame her into doing something other than playing games. Well, it has worked. Sort of. As well as playing games, Tasha now writes about them.

Tasha plans to turn Casual Girl Gamer into a popular forum for fans of casual games, and over coming months intends to share with readers her favourite games, review the latest casual games to come on the market, interview casual game developers and bring to reader's attentions the odd gaming jewel that might have passed them by.

She is being helped in this endeavour by her husband Alex, who will be writing a regular column. Tasha also welcomes contributions from readers, so if you have anything interesting to say about casual gaming, email Tasha your thoughts (casualgirlgamer@gmail.com), and you could end up getting published on this site.
