Short bios for the people running the joint.


Vic Briseno
Fearless Leader and Game Guru

Vic’s love for pizza and games both started at home. Games of Monopoly vs his dad would adorn the dining room table for days (despite his mother wanting it cleared). He was raised in the family pizzeria in Grants, NM which has been making killer pizza for 15 years. In college he arrived to the world of the hobby board game with his gateway being the classic, Settlers of Catan. After completing school and some years in manufacturing he is bringing his passions of pizza, games, and good times to Albuquerque.

Best Pizza: Pepperoni and Mushrooms
Favorite Game: The Manhattan Project or Pandemic(s)
Beer of Choice: Black and Blue Sour from Boxing Bear

Rain Beer

Mercedes Donio
Beer Champion

Mercedes’ love for craft beer was groomed from enjoying beer with her dad and eventually making some of their own. Her love for games also comes from family whose favorites include Rummy, Backgammon, and a family heirloom called “Spite or Malice.” As a native to Albuquerque she has a special spot in her heart for New Mexico breweries and will be curating a selection of the best beers the state has to offer.

Best Pizza: Pepperoni and Cheese with Ranch to dip in!
Favorite Game: “Spite or Malice” or Imperial Settlers
Beer of Choice: Currently hoping for the Fifth Value Black IPA from Bosque to make a triumphant return.
