Stephen was born in Bradford, Pennsylvania but spent most of his childhood in a small town in Upstate New York. After graduating high school he traveled around the United States as part of a theater company. Upon completing his adventures there he joined the United States Army where he spent the next 23 years. After retiring, he decided to pursue a bucket list dream of opening a gaming store. He and his wife Stacey moved to Republic, MO in 2015 and established the store (Cards 'n Stripes) in March 2016. Since that time they have grown the business into one of very few places you can actually rent board games and take them home to play in the comfort of your own living room. Various other events can be pursued at their shop to include board game nights, organized trading card game tournaments, miniatures painting as well as role-playing games and rental space. While relatively new to quizzing, Steve finds it an enjoyable past-time and is thrilled at the chance to provide you with a fun-filled evening of trivia. Without further ado, let us begin.
