I have been gaming since I was no age (you'd think I'd be good at it by now, but no), and started out playing Risk and Campaign on the boardgame side, and Ancients, Napoleonics and WW2 on the figures side. The big event of the 70's for me was the arrival of Dungeons and Dragons from America, which I played loads with the other members of the Ulster Military Modelling Society. This was interspersed with SPI games such as Sinai, Fulda Gap and Wacht am Rhein. I was too lazy to paint many figures at that time, so the figure gaming fell by the wayside.

I started a Wargames Society when I got to university, and the Students Union even gave us some money to buy games with, the most memorable being Squad Leader and Kingmaker. When I left Uni and moved to England for work, I lost touch with wargaming (apart from the odd trip to Salute in London) for almost 20 years, until my son cajoled me into buying and painting some Warhammer figures in 2000, and I haven't looked back since.

My gaming falls into 3 main areas - figure gaming as a member of the Tunbridge Wells Wargames Society (http://www.twws.org.uk); board & figure wargaming with my son, and Euro (for want of a better word) gaming with my wife and son. The fact that there are only 3 of us means that games that work best with 3 are our favourites, so I always appreciate reviews and podcasts which discuss this aspect!
