When I was growing up my family played the classic family board games (Monopoly, Clue, Life, Battleship, Chess, Stratego, Connect Four, Yatzee, Topple, Cribbage, 120s, 500s, and Spades), and some not so classic ones like E.T. , and Quicksand.

In 1995, my third year of University I got hooked on the CCG Magic: The Gathering. So while some students spent their money on beer, I spent my money on Magic, and eventually other CCGs like Shawdowfist. I eventually said enough and stopped buying CCGs do to my insane number of Magic cards, and switched to computer gaming.

Eventually I left university with my B.Eng Chemical and started working. Once or twice in 1999 I found a few people to play Advanced Civilization with but I was not yet involved with a real board gaming group and I was content playing PC RPGs like the Might and Magic series or the Baldur's Gate Series. I did love those long sessions of Advanced Civilization though. In 2001 I stumbled upon a group from work that played board games monthly and so I got to try Junta, Illuminati, Hacker, Tikal, A Game of Thrones and various other games. I still did not buy board games myself.

The PC games eventually became annoyingly frustrating, as it seemed you needed a new system every year to keep up with the latest and greatest games, I believe the last series I played was Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic. This is about the time I started buying my own board games.

In 2005 I had my first child and was starting my own family so I started gradually playing family and kids games again, now in 2011 with 3 kids I find myself playing all sorts of board games from Go Away Monster to Twilight Imperium. I find myself wanting to play as much as I can of whatever I can.

I attended FallCon 24 on Friday, October 14, 2011. My highlights were making it to the finals in Alien Frontiers.

In October 2011 I supported a game on Kickstarter for the first time. It was Empires of the Void.

In the last weekend of September, 2012 I attended FallCon 25. Highlights were playing one of my favorite games, Defenders of the Realm, and playing a team game of Ticket to Ride: Team Asia. The final highlight was teaching and playing one of my new favorites, Empires of the Void, to three new players.

In the last weekend of September, 2013 I attended FallCon 26. Highlights were playing one of my favorite games, Clash of Cultures, and playing Kemet and Tzolk'in. As well as picking up
Merchants & Marauders
at the FallCon auction.

In February 2014 I supported my 2nd game on Kickstarter, it was Tiny Epic Kingdoms.

In the first weekend of October, 2014 I attended FallCon 27. Highlights were playing Caverna, Nations, and Dominant Species.
