I'm fairly new to the geek and board gaming in general. Got my start with chess, monopoly, etc at a young age. Learned Magic: The Gathering and the Yu-Gi-Oh CCG in high school (more here). It wasn't until I found BGG that I learned just how vast and wonderful board gaming can be and have since started to grow my collection and convert my family and friends to the hobby as well.
My very first project as a gamer was to create Nightfall. The old forum thread I used for developing the game here on BGG as well as my own designer notes are all available online. See also Drakkenstrike's video reviews below as well as the rulebook PDF.
Also started keeping a blog of game ideas ( mostly to help me keep track of my thoughts, terrible memory ). Feel free to follow along / comment: S3rvant.com.
