I'm a stay-at-home, farm mom of 2 boys, aged 8 and 5. So with Dad, the 2 boys, a male chocolate lab, 4 male horses, and 3 male cats, I'm somewhat outnumbered. Luckily, we've also got 2 female labs and 1 female horse too, so I'm not completely overwhelmed by the testosterone. I consider myself "Boss Mare" around here but luckily I enjoy being outside, gardening, riding, camping, hunting, fishing, scouting, playing board games and video games, and other "boy things" rather than makeup, fashion, and playing with dolls...
As for gaming, since finding BGG I have added a very small selection of games to the collection from my youth. Mostly I have gotten games to play with the boys - several of which I think we've outgrown now. I'd love to trade for gateway or family type games for 2-4 players. It would be really great to find another 'geek who's ready to trade several games for kid games.
I'm absolutely open to offers. So, when I look for games I look for FUN, high on theme, medium and lower weight, not too complicated rules, time under an hour, and a maximum minimum age range starting at 10.
Looking forward to meeting you,
Update: Recently moved to New Mexico - still figuring things out here.
