Ever since I was a kid I have loved playing all games (including sports which are really just active games). As an only child I would often play board games by myself, either playing both (or several) sides or by making up my own rules for solo play. Mostly I played the popular games with a few war games thrown in (Axis & Allies, Fortress America, etc).

In 2009 I finally had some friends that were into games and I started playing a lot more board games. I got involved with a couple of gaming groups and now consider myself a true "gamer". I find that I pretty much like every game I play to some extent, and one of my favorite things to do is to learn/play new games. I tend to stick to shorter games (under 3 hours) since I'm always trying to find something my wife will play with me, and she doesn't like long games.
