I have been boardgaming most of my life, for as long as I can remember. I became serious about it in the 4th or 5th grade when a friend introduced me to Avalon Hill's Luftwaffe and Third Reich. My first real wargame purchse was Panzer Blitz.

Throughout high school and college I found it difficult to find anyone to play war games with. We mostly played party type games. Trvial Pursuit became huge while I was in college. A roommate of mine would play the Games Workshop games like Talisman and Chainsaw Warrior. I continued to mostly just play all my war games solo. In graduate school my gaming life took a serious turn for the better. I met a group of guys at a local board game meet up and began a friendship that has lasted to today with some of them. We played The Longest Day pretty much non-stop. When we weren't playing TLD we played all sorts of other war and non-war games including, Modern Naval Battles, Supremacy, Highway to the Reich, The Korean War, World in Flames, The Civil War, Merchants of Venus, Rail Baron, Euro and British Rails, Empire Builder, and so on.

As my children grew I introduced them to Risk themed games. They also cut their teeth on Catan, Munchkin and Sid Meiers Civilazation. My war game and overall game collection has grown to over 200 games. Many I've played and many more I have not.

Conventions I have attended include Origins when it was held in Ft Worth back in the early 90's, Texicon in FtWorth, Heat of Battle in New Orleans, Owlcon here in Houston and the most awesome of cons, BGGcon.

BGG has been a tremendous resource for me, not only in terms of acquiring games and information, but also in getting to know people from all over the world. Thanks BGG.
