I get started playing Boardgames on a vacation in 2009 with a purchase of Catan
(and and New World: A Carcassonne Game
) which I had heard about on Hanselminutes
podcast episode Board Gaming for Programmers. The podcast had discussed Euro games and boardgaming, a few gateway games like Ticket to Ride, Incan Gold, Robo Rally and Settlers of Catan which they said was really what started the whole genre in the US. It had always been in the back of my mind to try one cause my exposure to Monopoly, Risk and Scrabble was long, drawn out, boring rainy afternoons with my siblings.
But, after playing SoC I was hooked. As they say the rest is history.
I am a father with 3 kids, 2 boys and a girl. One son is in graduate school, the other 2 kids in college.Recently Played Games:
