It's extremely helpful (but not mandatory) to include some and describing the pros and cons of the game you played. They're great visual aids to summarize your post!

I live about an hour south of Boston, Massachusetts and have lived in this area most of my life. I used to work in television and documentary development and production for over 20 years before switching to work in higher education supporting technology in classrooms and meeting spaces as well as handling event logistics both on and off campus. I have been working at Suffolk University on Beacon Hill for over 12 years and now that I have finished up my Bachelor’s in History, I am currently studying for my Master's in Higher Education.

I became interested in board games and solitaire games when I became a widower shortly after I started working at Suffolk and my daughter, then three years old, wasn’t quite ready to play games just yet. I got into some co-op games that I could play solo and, after that, found out that I could print my own copies of games from the likes of Todd Sanders. Eventually, I got pretty hooked on the hobby and joined several gaming groups while my collection exploded to a number of games that was far too many for my small apartment.
As my daughter got older, we started playing other games. It was then I thought, “Why not create a YouTube channel and show folks all these cool kids games?” Well, that morphed into recording reviews of other games as well. I had to take a hiatus from shooting videos once real life got in the way: family, friends, work, school, and trying to have something resembling a dating life. Plus, I had told myself from the beginning that once it became too much work and wasn’t fun anymore, I would stop. Now, two years later, I’m thinking about attempting to pick up the mantle from where I left off and give it another go. But for now, some written reviews and commentary over on my blog at http://completelyboard.com and http://www.gamenitemagazine.com.

I have been participating in the SGOYT geeklists for many years now and there are some members I am frankly in awe of; their knowledge of games, their in-depth analysis of gameplay, and others for their spectacular photography. Such an incredible group of people here!!
So here I am hosting for the very first time!! I am excited and have some things planned out below. Check them out! And please, please, please, introduce yourself if we don’t know each other already. It’s always wonderful to meet other gamers from all over the world.
