The youngest of five, I played pretty much whatever everyone else wanted to play. Luckily, we all enjoy a variety of games, and there isn't a sore looser among us! We rode the first wave of D&D enthusiastically, but EPs were not easy to earn in our group, so we played hardscrabble, cooperative campaigns full of fun and misadventure. This in contrast to the egotistical god-clashes I found when I tried to play with other groups, where my characters were barely suitable as cannon fodder and my character names were too pronounceable. Today, I live an hour away from my nearest family and I only get to play with them occasionally.

Here, on BGG, I have discovered new games to try, plus old games that I missed when they were new. We live in rural East Texas, where the primary source of games for most people is Walmart, and they are almost exclusively crapyuk. About three years ago I enlisted my wife and we started the "Lake Area Boardgaming Society." We meet every Monday night at our local Dairy Queen and have a regular group of about 20 people. If you can't find gamers, you just have to recruit and grow them. I provide the library by carrying most of my games around in a Dodge Grand Caravan, affectionately referred to as the "Funmobile." We have even had some of them join us in attending BGG.con, and even more have accumulated libraries of good games that they are playing with their friends and families.

I am very lazy about maintaining my game list, it is really patheticzombie. However, my wife has cataloged them in her profile.
