Gaming history:
As a kid, I played the standard mass-market boardgames (Clue, Monopoly, Operation). As a teen and young adult, I enjoyed card games (Spades, Rummy, Canasta). When our daughter was young, my husband and I played the old games with her. After she left home, we started getting interested in games again. Since we didn't know about the existence of anything except the mass-market stuff that held no interest for us, we played card games. In 2009, we discovered Carcassone, and it was the most fun we had ever had with a game. In looking for Carcassone info, I found BGG and an exciting new way to drain my bank account.

Gaming situation:
Approximately 85% of my game plays are 2-player (with my husband), 10% are solo, and the remaining 5% are with family members (who all live a long way away, so opportunities for play are few). My game collection expanded rapidly after I joined BGG, and it is still growing. At the moment, I have more than 160 unplayed games. My goal is to play them all, rate them, and delete the ones that I don't like.

Other interests:
I have been a voracious reader of science fiction and fantasy from my earliest years. I have a lifelong love of rock music, mostly the harder modern stuff but also some alternative and classic rock. (My husband was a guitarist in a rock band when we met--he still plays and composes--and I freely admit that I married him for his music.) My favorite movie genres are martial arts, classic comedies, costume dramas, science fiction and fantasy, and westerns. I am also interested in nature, modern homesteading, Permaculture, and alternative homebuilding.

My current avatar is the album cover for Melissa Auf Der Maur's record "Auf Der Maur," with an edit to change the background from orange to blue. I do not look anything like MADM.
