I've been playing boardgames since the late 60s when I was presented with Monopoly
by my parents one Christmas, my first "big" game as it was described to me. This was later followed by Cluedo
When I moved up to secondary school, I met up with a few like minded friends and we started to meet on Saturday afternoons, playing various games initially still the family oriented stuff produced by Waddingtons and Parker, but as the years went by, we discovered more involved fare of which Kingmaker
come to mind.
After school we got into role playing and board games tended to take second place, although that did not stop us from discovering and liking some games most notably Civilization
, but as the 80s and 90s went on we were unable to continue the Saturday afternoon sessions and this died out. We got back into board games, discovering German titles Schoko & Co.
and Die Macher
with evening sessions mostly board games, but also a brief flirtation with CCGs, mostly MTG.
Sometime in the late 90's we started renting a room at the local Conservative club and so Halesowen Boardgamers
I started logging all my face to face games and some solo games in early 2007, I have been able to back track some earlier games, but these are not complete.
My Top 10 is based on my ratings, my Hot 10 is the Top 10 in order of most recent play.
In 2009 I got involved in some of the Play By Forum games here on the geek starting with Battlestar Galactica (thanks ColtsFan76). My games so farBattlestar GalacticaBattlestar Galactica - Online BGG game session - GAME OVER
