My hobby board gaming all started in 1989 with HeroQuest. I had all 4 North American expansions. Unfortunately, it was my only hobby boardgame until 2010. I also played some D&D throughout middle/high school. I played plenty of other games throughout my life, party/trivia games with friends and families, and typical board games with college friends like Clue, Monopoly, Risk, etc. But I was mostly a video gamer, specifically a Nintendo gamer. NES, SNES, GB, N64, GC, and the Wii. Hundreds of games across all systems. But lately, I have been getting burnt out from video games.

In 2009 some friends of mine wanted to get back into HeroQuest. I dug up the dusty old boxes, and we got back into it. For a few months anyway, until our schedules wouldn't mesh well and eventually one of our group moved away. So that ended, and as we headed into 2010, I still had the board gaming itch.

In 2010, I had found what I was looking for to replace HeroQuest. It had weapons, magic, and monsters. No GM was needed, I could finally be one of the heroes! And there were dozens of heroes to choose from, all with different stats and abilities. The game outcome was determined in a single session, so we didn't have to meet at the same time every week to continue our adventure. In fact, with 1-8 players, we could play anytime with anyone whenever we wanted. There was plenty of exploration, and the game was never the same, unlike the pre-set quests I had known. Sure the setting and theme was a little bit different then I was used to, but I loved it anyway. I had found Arkham Horror! Shortly afterwards, I had gotten all the expansions. But most importantly, it led me here, to Boardgamegeek!

I am playing Arkham Horror all the time, and am looking into other games. I am mostly into fantasy/action/exploration (Top 10 shows what games of mine I would like to play next, Hot 10 shows my most played games of the past 3 months, updated twice monthly), but will play anything anybody wants to set in front of me.

Videogames don't get played with friends as much anymore, but I still like playing through the older classics when I have time to myself. Mostly I like going through all the past RPGs, platformers, and adventure games that I played in my childhood, and discovering the ones I missed. You can look through the videogames I want to play to see what I still want to get to. I will be reviewing and rating the games I've already gone through over the past couple of years.

I am Video Game Geek of the Week #84!
