I decided to create a little list of how I went from owning only games like monopoly, risk, and trivial pursuit to being the primary game provider of my gaming group.

Over the past 5 years I have lived 2 states away from "home". While there I played some D&D with people from work. Occasionally we would be missing a person and we would play a board game instead. Things like Arkham Horror, Red November, We Didn't Playtest This At All, Munchkin, and Cards Against Humanity. Only one person had these games and they were fun, but none of us really understood the hobby. We just played whatever he brought as a backup game for the week.

On occasion when visiting my parents I would hang out with old college friends. Frequently we would end up playing Cards Against Humanity after a good few drinks. This was the first game that caught on back home. Previous attempts were Pass the Pigs and Beer Money. Never really thought these people would turn into a gaming group. We were always the Beer, Liqueur, and a standard 52 card deck types.

So, in Dec 2012 I got a new job back home. I was very glad to be back home, but sad to leave my old friends behind. I enjoyed the D&D and board game group. When I got home I quickly found that my old friends had upgraded to full blown Ascension addicts. My best friend had also gotten Legendary and Dark Tower (a game from his childhood). Hmm... these were board game people. I was instantly excited to have a board game group with all my old friends. And that's where it all began...

25DEC2012 - This was a fun filler game we would play back in PA while waiting for the D&D group to show up. I put it on my Amazon wishlist. One of my relatives managed to learn how to use her computer and got it for me. Hurray! My first "non mainstream" game. This came with the expansion as well.

26JAN2013 - We had played zombie fluxx in PA and really enjoyed it. I decided to get my own version to introduce to my gaming group. We rarely ever play this anymore unless it is a group of non gamers or we are waiting for a bigger game to get done.

1FEB2013 - Looking for game reviews online I discovered a man I've come to respect a great deal. Mr. Tom Vassel. He and his cohost Eric spoke very highly about this game Forbidden Island. I figured it was worth checking out. I had a Barnes and Nobles gift card from Christmas so I decided to swing by after work. Sure enough they had a copy so I picked it up. This game is still a staple in our group. I also have Pandemic which has taken over a bit. We still enjoy this one though because of the random map aspect. Lots of fun! Only downside is that I quickly discovered I was an Alpha Gamer. I've worked on that problem since then, but I still digress sometimes.

7FEB2013 - My friends introduced me to the board gaming heroin that is Kickstarter. I'd missed out on some really cool games (like zombicide and the anticipated Ogre), but gladly my other friends had caught them. I found Zogar's Gaze and pledged for it. Turned out to be pretty unplayable the first 2 times we tried. Hating to think I pledged into something I didn't enjoy, I helped develop a variant that has turned this into a game that my group really enjoys.

15FEB2013 - After the raving success of Forbidden Island and Legendary in our group, I started hunting for other co-op games. I snatched up this game because Amazon only had 1 in stock so I panicked thinking I'd never see it again. Ok so maybe I didn't need to panic but it turned out ok. The game was hard to learn at first, but we've had great fun with it. With the expansion of our gaming group, this has been a staple for nights in which we have lots of people show up. More often then not, the traitor wins, but we still have a great time.

20FEB2013 - After watching way too many Tom Vassel reviews I had an itch I had to scratch. Conveniently someone who owed me money payed me back. The next 4 games were the result of that.

This one we had played as a filler in PA. Fun simple game that my family could enjoy. Was an easy buy and we still play it frequently.

20FEB2013 - This is game 2 of that 4pac.

This game was a huge hit. I played it at a game night at a friend of a friends place. The guy who had it I knew I'd never see again and I just had to have this game. It is now my wife's favorite game. We played every night for 2 weeks straight after she played it the first time. Definitely a gaming group favorite.

Had played munchkin with others in the past. Decided to get a version nobody else had. We all have to have on in our collection, that's just how it is. We still play on occasion. Still fun. Star Munchkin, Star Fluxx...I like space stuff.

20FEB2013 - Game 4 of 4pac

This was a Tom Vassel recommendation. I love theme decks and this one seemed like an obvious buy. We've had vast arguments of "what combo is broken" and then we proceed to destroy that faction. That's how we usually end up playing. It is crazy amounts of fun. Doesn't get as much play time as I would like. I think it will make a comeback once we're done playing the current "cult of the new" game.

19MAR2013 - My wife and I bought a house at the end of February. The people moving out had some damage from the movers. We took a $200 settlement over having them repair it (it did not take $200 to repair it on our own, more like $15). So, my wife and I split the money as "non judgemental do whatever you want with it" money. So I bought the next 3 games.

This was an obvious grab. I was too that point where I had a gaming collection and TTR seems to be a game that is in everyone's collection. Nobody in my gaming group had it so I gave it the nod. We still play this frequently. Not crazy enough about it to start getting expansions yet though. We'll see after the gaming group buying bonanza slows down.

19MAR2013 - Game 2 of settlement money buy

All of my friends were crazy about deck builders so I wanted my own. I was hoping that Tom Vassel would do a review of it before I got it. Ryan Metzler did a review and made it sound "ok". So I pulled the trigger on it. This game has gotten the least amount of play time out of any. It's like munchkin, but with deck building to slow it down, not in a good way. Not to mention, I've cooled down from the excitement of deck builders as well. Only a couple do I really enjoy anymore.

22MAR2013 - I had been buying a bunch of stuff from Amazon and my regular bank credit card upset me so I got an Amazon card. They gave me free moneyz and I had a gift card left from something. So with this burning a hole in my pocket I got the next 3 games.

I had played this once in PA. It was fun. This was more of an impulse buy. Turns out my gaming group loved it and I also very much still enjoy it. I think this game had more tokens to punch out then anything else.

22MAR2013 - Game 2 of 3 in amazon credit buy

This was another impulse buy. We played it once in PA. This was less of a hit then Small World. It gets played about once every other month. Prolly only 3 or 4 plays total since I got it. It scales well to any amount of players so I may try to push it a couple times if we have an "odd man out" problem and a few of us are looking for a game to play while a big game is going on. I like it, but for some reason people find it hard to get a hang on.

This was an easy add in. Forbidden Island was awesome and everyone said this was the next step. Well they were right. My gaming group loves this game. We are still discussing if we want to upgrade and get one or both of the expansions. We have a pretty dynamic gaming group so people aren't veterans on any game yet. There's always someone who doesn't know what they're doing. That's why we rarely get expansions. We'll see what the future brings.

25MAR2013 - Another kickstarter project I jumped on. The gameplay looks fun and simple. The artwork is incredible. I realize it won't be a gaming group favorite since it's "just a card game" but I've very excited for this to arrive (est. Nov/Dec this year).

13APR2013 - Got a facebook message one day from my gaming group... "Found 6 of these at Goodwill for $2 each. Who wants one?" Yeah that was an easy grab. At my current state of gaming fanaticism this was a steal to put another game on the shelf. Turned out to be a fun euro game. We don't play often since euros aren't our bread and butter. But when the right people are looking for something to play, it's always a winner. I could see it being replaced by another euro like Lords of Waterdeep or Francis Drake once we start looking for something more in depth.

23MAY2013 - I head so much buzz over this game that I just had to pick it up. I actually found it on ebay with the Power Up expansion for pretty cheap. This has turned into one of our favorite games. Our group even participated in a local tournament. We had almost half of all the people int he tournament from our group. 2 of us made it to the final table, but Forrest Bower (of Bower's Gaming Corner) took first place and scored the Space Penguin. Forrest!!!!! We did get a few sets of the promo cards though.

23MAY2013 - Quarriors was starting to dull for me. Quartifacts gave it that extra spice I needed to bring it back to a top 3 game. The quests are a very refreshing twist to the game, and makes it faster IMO. Definitely an expansion to pick up if you have the game.

1JUL2013 - Around this date I got a call from a friend. He and his girlfriend broke up and he needed a place to crash for a month or two while he figured out his next step. He insisted on paying rent so I said "buy me a board game each week and you're good." This turned out to be awesome!!! He was a big gamer and we had a blast with this arrangement.

We swung down to the FLGS to check out what was in stock. They had a copy of Cosmic Encounter which was crazy hard to find at the time. Tom Vassel raved about it, so we picked it up. This game has a bit more complication then some people like and it doesn't hit the table as often as I'd like, but it's picking up steam. We've only started using yellow powers. I think it will have a lot of longevity. Very glad I picked it up. Not bad for first week's rent.

There is no reason to have two A's at the beginning of aardvark. I simply won't do it.

This was another game that the FLGS had that was hard to find at the time. Still crazy expensive on Amazon at the moment. We snatched it up with little to go on other then online reviews and a game of "Beer and Board Games" we watched. This game is awesome!!! Probably one of the most popular games we have right now given how easy it is to learn. And who doesn't like drinking and pointing a gun at people? o_O

This was a game on my amazon wishlist just to keep an eye on it. My pal picked it up on a whim. I really enjoy it. That could be considering the 4 times I've played I've never lost. Others enjoy it, but I think they'd like to play without me. As an engineer I find this game pretty easy to do well. I would play this game anytime! Bring it on!
