I don't know about you, but I tend to mark time not by events but by the games I play. The following is all about me... as told by games.

The first board game I ever remember playing - I must have been about three. It sparked a live-time love of games, ghosts and things that glow-in-the-dark. I recently played this again and just like memories, things seemed brighter back then.

My love of all things creepy (and treasure hunting) continued through my youth. In retrospect, I'm not so surprised I would later marry an archeologist.

Star Wars, like everyone in my generation, blew my little mind. It managed to take everything I loved in my childhood and combine it into one exciting mix. And yet, there were surprisingly few good games based on it.

Another turning point for me. While not a board game, D&D propelled my interest in games of all types into overdrive.

A summer job in a gamestore introduced me to the world British games. I bought them all... and then sold them all in college.

Ironically, not a statement on my wife. When I learned that it was her family's tradition to hand-make their own Aggravation board, I knew I had met the right girl.

Since I was a child I loved the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland - even though it took me a year to work up the nerve to go into it. I decided it was the perfect place to propose to my wife.

Warhammer 40K came at a time when work was miserable - Crafting and painting armies and blowing things up came as a welcome relief. It also re-sparked my love for miniature-based games.

I am convinced the folks at Wizkids thought "what can we create to suck all the money out of my wallet?" My life-long love of comics, miniatures, games and collecting collided headlong. At current count, I have over 11 fishing tackle boxes full of the little buggers and counting. I even have a fan-site (www.whoclixguide.com)

Working long hours can make you feel like one of these. But in my book, this game is the near-perfect combination of tile-laying, RPG and miniatures.

Having children means that you meet a different class of people. One of those good friends has an impressive game collection. This is my current favorite (though I get annoyed everytime my wife sends a sea monster after my boat)

And with age, come an appreciation for more mature things. (though it still has tile-laying and little meep...er people) Is it a coincidence that just as my gaming tastes start to mature I discovered BGG? Or is it just two things that happened at the same time? Either way I'm glad to be here!
