November 2010
A lifechanging month...the discovery of modern boardgames for me meeple

Though I was raised a gamer by my parents, all I knew of were traditional card games, familiar abstracts, & mass marketed board & party games - until November of 2010, when I decided to look for a new game for my family to play that Christmas. A quick search on Amazon opened my eyes - I had NO CLUE there were so many "new" games out there! Blokus, For Sale, & Incan Gold were some of the first purchases. Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride & Dominion soon followed. I was blown away by the artwork & quality of components. Fascinated, I read review after review on Amazon. Somewhere, in some review, someone mentioned BGG. Curious, I clicked on the site and...was completely blown away by what I saw. Life has not been the same since!
