I've been playing games as long as I can remember. As a young child I played card games and classic board games with my family. As a teen, I got into role playing games, particularly Dungeons & Dragons and Villains & Vigilantes among many others. In college, I met some guys who played wargames with miniatures and that became a major hobby.
I had a small collection of board games that I had very slowly accumulated as an adult, but I really got bitten by the modern board game habit after buying a copy of Battle Cry back in 2001.
A few years back, when my kids were still a little young to play many of the games I enjoyed, I discovered the Vassal Engine for playing online. Eventually, I found myself designing modules for games I liked. I created a Yahoo group where I organized tournaments for people who play C&C Ancients on Vassal.Top Ten Games:
