I first started playing games in middle school, when some friends introduced me to Magic: The Gathering card game. I played that through high school and enjoyed it, but eventually lost interest due to the constant need to buy new cards.
In college, I joined a gaming group that played some light games like Settlers and Werewolf.
After graduating college, I moved down to Maryland and found some new groups of euro-gamers to play with. I have been addicted to euro games ever since, and I will probably be playing games for the rest of my life
