Sometime in 2000, I picked up a copy of Catan. Not knowing anything about the game, my wife and I managed to convince another couple to try it with us. There was a moment that evening when I realized something special was happening. For the first hour, I was simply reading the rules to the others at the table (I still haven't shaken that responsibility). By the time we actually started playing, I'm sure that the others were simply humoring me. They were probably hoping to get the game over with so that we could move on to something else. I don't remember exactly what happened, or even who won the game. I just know that at some point, a few turns into the game, someone yelled, "Yes! Sheep! Whoo Hoo!" I knew then that I'd discovered something that would have a tremendous impact on my life.

Though I always enjoyed playing games as a child, we didn't really play many games as a family. I do remember watching my parents play Backgammon, Dominoes, and Scrabble. In 7th or 8th grade, a friend came home from a vacation where he'd discovered "an incredible game that was played mostly in your imagination." We spent most of the next three years playing Dungeons and Dragons every free moment that we had. I stopped playing games in college and never thought I'd get into it again. Little did I know that there was an entire world of great games just waiting to be discovered.

After the Catan revelation, we moved on to Citadels, Samurai, The Princes of Florence, and Tigris & Euphrates. I picked up Apples to Apples sometime later and was pleased to discover the evolution of party games. We played the same 5-8 games for several years before I discovered BGG. Since then, I've started researching and purchasing boardgames fairly regularly. I've also started a local gaming group and become addicted to boardgaming podcasts.
