The highlight of most family gatherings when I was a kid in the 70s was seeing what my game-collecting uncle had brought for all of his nieces and nephews to play. Without him, holidays would have been a lot duller. Although none of the games we played became lasting favorites into adulthood, he did introduce me to a lot of great games, most of which I remember only in fragments.

In college and afterwords I remember lots of riotous games of Supremacy, Buck Rogers, War of the Roses (poor Percy!), and my all-time favorite Up Front. Back in the 90s I played that game with my best friend every chance we had and I remember that time fondly.

Now I try to game every week with the 7th Street Irregulars which has been perfect to get more gaming time in with a great group of people. I also game as often as schedules allow with older friends. We have enjoyed so many great games and epic sessions through the years. These nights are long and we often only get a single game in while we catch up on each other's lives.

Starting in 2007, our group in various numbers went down to Origins. Going down to Columbus with good friends for days and days of unfettered gaming was a real highlight of the year for me. We missed it in 2012 because of the date change and went to Gen Con instead. Wow, what a fun trip that was. In 2014, we were back to Origins, but I'll miss both in 2015 because of a new job. I can't wait to get back!

(Started keeping track of plays again in 2015--for some unknown reason.)
