Greetings Geek of the Week #313 - h00sha.

I enjoyed playing Snakes and Ladders and Monopoly as a youngster and played a few other games growing up - never really enjoyed the other major mass market games though (risk, clue, etc.) I remember Survive and a space game that I only have a vague recollection of. Played some D&D in junior high, really not much. Became aware of CCGs in the 90's but never played - wished I had someone to play with, but had other priorities.

Fast forward to about 2005/2006 and I was looking for a game that my daughter would like. Started with Cranium for kids. Then my employer at the time was running a team building event that was based on monopoly. I figured that she was ready start learning about money, so we got monopoly. Really loved it again! But it got boring fast so I started surfing the internet for board games... something called me, told me there was more.

Found some positive reviews and references to Settlers of Catan and vaguely remembered seeing it for sale at the mall. Bought it. Loved it! Bought 2 more copies for friends at Christmas that year (2007).

Life went on and we played games occasionally. Started looking for something more again. Near the end of 2009 I stumbled upon BGG. I decided that this site was for geeks - "that's not me" (denial) - But I planned on using it as a reference for my next game purchase... decided on Ticket to Ride, with no intent to go further into the hobby.

Everything snowballed in 2010 and a gamer was born. Started logging plays 01/01/2011. At some point, stopped logging expansion plays separately and just included them in base game plays.I think that consideration for how strongly one would recommend a game to others is missing from the BGG personal rating scale.

I enjoy very basic miniatures painting:
