I'm a 36-year old gamer and live in Brussels with my gaming husband (known as "Stormparkiet
" on BGG) who introduced me to gaming and to BGG.
I used to play the classic family games (Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial etc.) with my younger sister now and then, but apart from that I was not into gaming.
I have to say this rapidly changed after I met my now husband at university and became the happiest woman on earth.
As he was already really into gaming - playing Magic the Gathering, Warhammer etc. - I became quickly interested. It didn't take long before I asked him to teach me how to play Magic, then followed Warhammer, board games, blood bowl etc.
The last couple of years we replenished our game assortment mainly with games that (also) play well with two players as we often play one(or more) games in the evening after coming home from work.
In 2009 our beautiful daughter was born, so now I am a happy gaming mum.

As from last weekend (beginning of May 2012) I'm going to try to record my plays with my daughter (my husband already records our plays) to see how much she requests a certain game.10 Random games from my collection:
