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, Diplomacy and 1829 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 was born. We moved to the Stag & Three Horseshoes in November 2013 due to a need for more space and late in 2014, I finally gave in to social media and created @halesowenBG as the club's twitter account.

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), although more recently I've given up on this as I find I don't enjoy them in the same way as I do a face to face game and I also find the ability to track so much information that would otherwise have to be carried in the head to detract from the game being played. I may give PbF another try at some point, but not at the moment.
