I live in a state that some people haven't even heard of...it's frustrating to explain that Vermont is not part of New York!
I was bitten by the board game bug early on in life. I used to play Clue like it was my job, and I would never say no to a game. As I grew older, I drifted away from gaming a bit, more from lack of interested friends than anything else.
In 2006, a couple that I am very good friends with purchased me a Christmas gift: Carcassonne. They had heard that it was supposed to be good and thought maybe I would like to give it a shot. One thing led to another, and thanks to the wonders of the internet, I wound up here on BGG. I had no idea that a whole world of games was out there, and I immersed myself in them.
I enjoy at least one weekly gaming session, with the aforementioned couple and some other friends. My collection is quickly outgrowing...well...everything, and I have never had more fun!
