Hello, all!!

My name is Monica, and I come from Norway. My gaming career started, I guess, in my childhood. I was a member of a chess club while in lower secondary. Other than that I played various games growing up. When I got into the real gaming community, it was through Magic, the Gathering. That turned out to be just about empty for women! I was often alone during tournaments. Having jumped over to board games, I met a bigger female community of game playing women. That I find very nice, though I didn`t really mind being the only girl, either. I tend to have various not exactly female oriented hobbies!laugh

I hope we all can stay in touch, get to know each other better. It`s always nice to share experiences with other female gamers!

Thank you very much!!

I love it here, fun to get to talk with BGG all over the world.

So, what kind of games do you all go for?

I have some very strong favourites; Colosseum, Thebes, Vikings, Pompeij, Around the world...
I generally love the exploration games out there on the market

Mold the chaos into something beautiful
mbmbmbmbmb
Hi, I'm Mindy in Portland, OR. We (the bf and I) got into games a couple months ago when a friend had us play Last Night on Earth and we fell in love with it. We then got Invasion from Outer Space, and Battlestar Galactica, which is our current favorite. (I love it so much!!) I am a bit of an introvert and am trying to figure out how to meet more people to play games with, because I just really love it. We currently play with another couple, and separately with some other friends. I recently joined a Womens Gaming group on meetup.com but haven't gotten to one of their game nights yet. I hope to do that soon. I'm also thinking about going to the Munchkin game day today at a local game store. I'm scared. but I really want to play!

Welcome Mindy!

As you are discovering, there are many different gaming groups in Portland. We are lucky to live in an area with so many wonderful choices.

Below is a link to the Portland area open meet-ups:

http://boardgamegeek.com/guild/60

I hope to see you at some of these events. Please feel free to gm me with any questions or if I can assist in anyway.

Hi, my name is Meredith. I live outside Chicago, IL. I'm new to BGG! I've played tons of different boardgames but just recently started my own collection. I've been playing video games and RPGs for a long time. I'm a nursing student working towards being a PA, which sadly means little time to game. But I hope to discover some great games and meet some cool people.

I just copied this from my post on the "who are you" thread but I figured it was fitting here too


Hi there!!

My name's Meshell (unusual spelling I know - my mother always likes to be different) and I'm a 24 year old gamer from the UK. I was born in the south of the UK but moved North when I was young so the North is pretty much my home.


I'm new to both BBG and "gamer" boardgames - both were introduced to me by my new partner

and although I (as yet) do not have the same level of interest as he does I'm always keen to learn. When we first got together I had no idea about the amount of different boardgames that are out there - I'm more of a WoW/SWTOR/DC Universe kinda person, but gaming of any type interests me and I'm keen to not only play more but learn more too.


I'm very interested in finding ways to interact with the BBG community, and was lucky to spot the 5th Annual Christmas Card Exchange which allowed me to interact with other people. I noticed that some people had micro-badges for the FTL Christmas card exchange so I went on a mission to find out more about this FTL thread and well here I am .



I am a trained Social Worker which I worked very hard to obtain but unfortunately recently lost my job due to a persistent injury, which I am hoping will be sorted out early this year in order for me to go back to work. Mainly in my downtime (which is quite a lot now-a-days) I like to read, do cross stitch, watch films and see friends.


Oh and one last thing - my username comes from comics. Oa is the headquarters of the Green Lantern Corps. The Green Lantern is my favorite comic, closely followed by The Flash.
