I'm a middle-aged boardgamer, enjoying the vast variety of boardgames currently on offer.

From humble beginnings as a child, playing Travel Scrabble (the game played most often in our holiday caravan during typical British summer rainy weather), as well as the staples Monopoly and Cluedo, I moved on to play a number of more thematic Parker and Waddington's boardgames, the highlights being:
Movie Maker, Totopoly, Formula 1, Subbuteo Angling (yes, really!), Campaign, Dover Patrol, Ulcers, Blast-Off, North Sea Oil, Waddingtons Table Soccer, Escape from Colditz, and numerous others. Most of these were sold off in my teenage years so that I had money to spend on more teenage-related pursuits.

My twenties and thirties saw an interest developing in Dungeons and Dragons and then board wargames, including Bull Run (unplayed and sold on), Cry Havoc and Great Battles of Alexander the Great. Then I discovered Games Workshop during their golden age of boardgames, and I bought Dungeonquest and its expansions, Mighty Empires, Advanced Heroquest (for solo play!), and Warhammer Quest.

I found BGG in 2009, and looked up all my old games in the database, and noticed all these other amazing games!. Commands and Colors: Ancients, and Battlelore were the ones that took my eye initially, but as with most BGG addicts, I started to spend a whole lot of money on a diverse array of new great games.

With a daughter and a non-playing wife, gaming time is limited, but I have recently found the Ross-on-Wye games group and played a whole lot of games there that I probably would never have tried otherwise. As far as buying games to play at home, provided the game can be played solo, then I am interested!

Now I have passed my half-century, I am looking forward to playing games as much as I can, and hoping I can encourage my daughter to play some of them with me.
