I played Dungeons and Dragons for the first time in December of 1983. I have been a gamer ever since. I got into board games in the mid to late 80's when I discovered Games Workshop's boardgames. When they went out of the boardgame business, I didn't really get back into it until around 2000 when I started to play Eurogames and Fantasy Flight Games at a local store.
Currently, I would say I play mostly Ameritrash games. There are some exceptions, of course. I love MArtin Wallace, and he is hard to categorize. I try to make it to the local board game marathons when I can. There are a lot of cool events around the Twin Cities Metro area in Minnesota.
I married the love of my life in September of 2011. She was not keen on gaming in the beginning. After she watched me play a roleplaying game for 5 minutes, she spent the next three months asking me if there was going to be a role playing games played before she would agree to attend anything involving my friends, including going out to eat. She has since mellowed out a little bit. She is very supportive of me "de-stressing" and playing my games as long as she does not have to participate. She was been willing to try a handful of boardgames. It seems like theme is important to her in a game.
