I started board gaming around 1978 when I received Dungeon!
for Christmas from the Big Red Guy with the sack. I took that game with me everywhere as if it were my magical tome of all things awesome. I would want to stay in my dad's truck while my parents shopped so that I could re-read the rules and play to see how much loot I could acquire before my parents got back. I was hooked.
In high school I found a group of friends that liked to play Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (2nd Edition)
. A few board games would find their way into my closet during this time (Combots
), but my friends preferred roleplaying over board games. Eventually I wound up selling both for extra gas money.
Over the years board games faded into the noise of reality, and around 2005 I found my way back to board games after spending some time playing Rolemaster
with a group that was also into board games. I believe RoboRally
and The Settlers of Catan
were the first board games I had played in many years. That reignited the gaming flame and eventually I found the almighty 'geek. That, in turn, led to an explosion of cash leaving my wallet.
Within a year I picked up two Heroscape
sets with some expansions, Dungeon Twister
, Runebound 2nd Edition
, Blue Moon
with all the expansions up to that point, Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers
, and Tsuro
Now I'm always on the look out for new games, and there's never enough on my shelves.
Thank you BoardGameGeek!
