Hello, my name is Michele, spelled the almost-regular way laugh I live in Virginia with my husband and three dogs: Phoenix (Retired Greyhound), Lucy (Pitbull mix) and Honey (Beagle mix). We have been involved in animal rescue for about 10 years and all of our dogs are adopted, loved to pieces and completely spoiled kiss

I am pretty new to BGG and have recently become addicted to this site! My husband and I own about 20 games and I add more to my wish list every day. We play different games, but lately, are reaching for Pandemic a lot - both of us and our group of friends really like it. Unfortunately, while my husband likes to play board games, he's not up for my preferred level of frequency (every evening would be ideal) so I tend to surf through BGG while he's playing video games shake

Welcome Michele, there's quite a few of us ladies sporting pics of our pets through our avatars. I don't know what an avatar runs these days but I'm thinking maybe 30GG. Here's some gold so we can see your pups in an avatar soon!

Hey,

I'm Ali, I started playing the 'proper games' a couple of years ago and I've found myself become more and more of a gamer.
I've always liked board games but growing up I was stuck with Monopoly, Scrabble and Game of life. It was only when I met my other half that I discovered the amazing world of board games and I've become hooked in playing and collecting the board games. We play together and also meet up with a group of people to play too. I find it to be very sociable and the people who play tend to be a great bunch. Though I do usually find that I am the only woman there most of the time.
I've decided to join BGG after my partner getting sick of me using his profile all the time. haha

Happy gaming

Ali

That is funny, my husband was using my profile for a long time before he finally created his own. :)

The first 'proper' game that I played was Survive: Escape from Atlantis! and it made me realise that there was a whole world of board games I hadn't seen before. I quickly got into the Eurogames like Catan and Carcassonne and a trip to the Essen games convention confirmed my status as a fully fledged board game geek

Nice to meet the ladies of the BGG community.

Welcome Ali!

Haha yes Essen can be very addicting (as my SO also found out , the first time he said it was way too crowded and he wasn't sure he would ever want to go again.... Of course he went again the next year and he found a whole new range of games that he likes very much)

Hi, I'm Kristen from Atlanta, Georgia.

I found the Geek in 2008 when I started dating my now husband. He was really into board gaming and I just hadn't been introduced before. I loved gaming though and easily and quickly feel in love with it.

Growing up I was always the one with the games. My favorite then was Risk and Mall Madness. Now, I love Vlaada Chvátil games, tile-laying and trading/market games.

I don't know how I am just finding the Women and Gaming forum, but I'm really glad I did!

Hello All, my name is Kristin Crane and I've been a lurker on BGG for the past two years. I've decided to start contributing more to the forums so I felt it was a good time to introduce myself.

I'm an American, born and raised in Germany, and now living in Canada. I like to joke that every 10 years or so I need to switch my country of residence to keep things interesting. We live in beautiful Nova Scotia and are lucky enough to live in Truro, a small town with an incredibly awesome FLGS.

My account was originally created by my husband as a way to get me more excited about his favorite hobby. The avatar was a gift from him after we vacationed in Newfoundland. I desperately wanted to see a real, live moose and was unable to fulfill that dream. cry

Boardgaming is quickly becoming my favorite activity to share with my friends. My wish list is usually stuffed with more games than I can afford, but I consider that half the fun.

This thread is a real refreshment. The why my wife reacts to me playing games you'd think I'm listed on one of those people search sites or something. She really can't stand it. That's why I have to come here

I did not know that this page existed, or I would have introduced myself earlier - although I am playing games on Yucata with so many on the ladies who frequent this forum that it feels like we have known each other a while.

My name is Stasia and I will be 50(!)next month. I am work a full-time job (graveyard shift) and go to school full-time too, so right now, gaming is my pressure-reliever. I have been a lifelong gamer, but got sidetracked from the hobby for a long while in raising my children. My husband is not a gamer at all and does not share my enthusiasm unfortunately. I have been a member of BGG since 2005 or so, but have never really participated on the site until this year.

Hi, I'm Theodora, from South East Asia, Singapore.

I started collecting M:tG in 2005 (polytechnic). I started a new in July 2011, and encountered a group of board gamers in the same division within my department. I joined in for team building, and was referred to the Geek, as a one-stop reference for all our board gaming needs. I signed up (eventually) after a considerable period of procrastinating.
