I'm a half American, half Norwegian, boardgamegeek living in Norway
I've grown up with two brothers who gamers in several arenas, and I have always had a soft spot for such hobbies myself.
I'm not the main boardgamer in my family, as my husband
is the obsessed one
He discovered BGG and a local gaming club
a few years ago, and has gradually built up an immense collection of boardgames. And I have since built up a decent collection myself.
We've been to several boardgame events the last few years now, our last event was OMGESSEN 2014
. This was my second time helping out Aldie, Beth and the rest of the BGG crew, and I had a fantastic time doing it
In 2010 we also managed to get in a trip to Boardgamegeek.CON
in Dallas. We had an incredible time there, meeting a whole bunch of fantastic people! Some of which we've been able to meet up with in Essen the last few years. I really hope we manage a trip back soon!(Some of the local events we've attended include MidWinter 3, 4, 5 & 6, Spillorama2008, Spillorama2009 & Spillorama2010, 2011 & 2012, Arcon 2007, 2008 & 2009, & Atlanticon)
We've also attended OMGESSEN! 2008
I really enjoy getting to meet new people and trying new games, which is probably why I enjoy these events so much
