My name is Leslie and I am a board gamer! I love to play board games and I love to teach board games.
My husband - not so much. He bought me an iPad so he wouldn't have to play games with me. Oh well. I've given up on trying to convert him. He doesn't care that I hang out with mostly guys so I am cool with him not playing.
Currently, I am the Advisor to the Board Game and Table Top Society at East Carolina University. This has been a great adventure and I am glad to be a part of it. We have held weekly gaming meetings on Tuesdays since September 2013 and have had 3 very successful all day long gaming days. They are a lot of work but I love it.
I also teach a class in ECU's LLP (Lifelong Learning Program) called "Board Games - Not Just for Kids!" This program is for persons older than 65 and can range from arts and crafts to American History to religion. This has been a challenge for me because teaching somebody who already knows how to play some games is completely different than teaching somebody who didn't even know Modern Board Games exsisted. It is getting a little easier every time I teach it though.
In my household, I have a husband - wonderful man, 2 dogs - an 84 pound Boxer/Pit mix and a 60 pound black long haired dog, (we are not sure what she is) a 12 pound cat - who beats the dogs up and 4 chickens. Our goal is to become a small farm one day but are not sure how many more animals we are going to be allowed to hold on our land. All of my animals are rescues and they are all sweet as can be (most of the time).
When I am not board gaming, I am usually reading or crafting. I craft a little bit of everything based on what has inspired me that month. I also like to cook and love to try new recepies.
So that is about it. If you want to know more about my group, class or my babies just geekmail me. I get really excited when I get geekmail.
