My objects of desire: Brenda Romero, Bafta-winning game designer on travel, typewriters and beloved local haunts
Romero is also the studio director at Galway-based Romero Games
I collect a lot of things, including old typewriters. I winnowed my collection down to move from the US to Ireland, but I’ve kept the more eccentric, quirky ones. I love their tactile nature.
Whenever I’m making a board game that is intended to be an art piece (as well as a fully functioning game) I will find a typewriter for it and type up the ruleset on it. They’re beautiful machines.
