1. Board Game: Power Grid [Average Rating:7.89 Overall Rank:36]
Right after Power Grid came out I was living in Rhode Island and would go to my friend Stableyr's house every week to do laundry and play board games with a bunch of other friends. He first introduced me to Rio Grande games and got me in the habit of a weekly board game night.

Thanks Bro!

2. Board Game: Agricola [Average Rating:7.99 Overall Rank:25]
When I moved back to California a few years ago, my coworker hosted a regular game night at his house for 7-10 people. He introduced me to BoardGameGeek.com.

Thanks artisresistance8!

(Ironically, Agricola is his favorite game and we never got around to playing it before I moved again )

and the people behind and in front of TableTop for introducing me to the hobby - I bought Pandemic after seeing it played there, which led me to BGG, and then a great FLGS.

My brother got this for me for Christmas when I was 9 because I was a big Heinlein fan.

I toiled with it...

And loved it...

A chap called Rob France taught a few of us this in about the year 2000. I'm not sure if he still boardgames any more.

But he's got me into a habit that's cost me a pound or two over the years!
