Middle-aged gamer with four kids.
Son-in-law and daughter
And one grandchild
I've been gaming since the 70's I guess. Back then I played the standard family games (Monopoly, Life, etc.) plus games in the American Heritage series.
I discovered role-playing in the late 70s but didn't play much. My first gaming obsession was Star Fleet Battles which I probably played over 300 times.
I first played Settlers of Catan in the mid 90s but didn't start playing Euros a lot until the past five years. These days I game with friends nearly every week where we play Euros and American style games.
I play games with my family: Dominion, Ticket to Ride, and Roll Through the Ages.
Though I don't get much chance to play them my true gaming love is still space ship combat games.Secret Santa Gifts
