Meet Jon, Creator of Pyramology

A keen gamer himself, Jon works as a nurse in Nottinghamshire. Diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy around 2003 and following a fall he is still working but is now in a wheelchair.

During the COVID pandemic Jon was identified as at high risk, so like many people found himself spending most of his life living and working at home. It was during lockdown, Jon decided that he needed a hobby. He'd seen 3D printers about and decided to get one. Starting out printing simple 3D pyramid shapes his my mind got to thinking about colouring the faces and stacking them together.

Over two-years later and his game has finally become a reality. Jon invested his savings into turning a lockdown hobby into a brand-new board game reality.
