Hello there, thanks for stopping by .

Want to hear a story?
For the last few years (about 4-5) I started to get interested in boardgaming.
I was hooked by a boardgame sale from a website I can`t remember and bought the game "Conquest of the Empire" really cheaply. It was great. It had tons of pieces, a giant map und really really cool looking plastic coins. Problem was; I didn`t play it. I fiddled around with the cards and set the game up, but actually I hadn`t anyone to play it with me.

But my interest didn`t stop. I was hooked. After that game I bought another game and another. I started watching "Boardgames with Scott" (loved it!) and after that I found the "Dice Tower". I started listening to the Podcast, watch the video-reviews, bought more games and fiddled around with them. But, as you may have guessed, I didn`t had anyone to play the games I bought or talk to about the new games...

At the end of the last year (2014) I decided to make a change. I invited two old friends from school to my house and played games with them and know what? They liked it!

So as a (kind of) new years resolution I decided to get my gaming act together!

I created this geeklist to set myself some goals to accomplish over the next 12 months!

Please thumb to get my moral up as I try to reach my goals!

Get a bi-monthly gaming group started.

50%/ 100%

Me and my friends met four times on a monthly basis. I'm counting that as 50% done...

UPDATE 1: After some back and forth we now settled down on every first and third thursday in a month.

UPDATE 2: It has settled on a monthly basis. Hope I can change that in the future!

Get at least 5 people in that group.

75% / 100%

I have two playing with me. I'm working on a co-workers husband to join.

UPDATE 1: One of my friends brought his neightbour/long time friend last time and he said that he had fun and was interested in coming again. I'll add 5% and we'll see how this works out.
UPDATE 2: The neightbour is now a regular member.
UPDATE 3: The son of a friends friend showed some interest in playing games. I invited him to come by some time. We'll see if he's interested once he has played with us.
UPDATE 4: A friend of my wife has another friend who likes boardgames. We`ll meet this week and maybe he is interested in joining.

Get a Descent 2.0 campaign played.
0% / 100%

UPDATE 1: Started the "Shadowrune"-campaign. Played "First blood" and "A fat goblin".
UPDATE 2: It`s been a long while since we played Descent, so I think we have to start over, if we play again.

Play a privat Android:Netrunner tournament!

One of my friends liked playing Netrunner a lot, he even bought a startet set! Maybe, of we can get some of the other people interested, we can have a little tournament

UPDATE 0: One of my other gaming friends was very interested after playing a few rounds. I'll teach him the game in a week. Maybe he will buy a starter-set too.
