Hi there! This is my first geeklist describing my way into the board gaming world that only started about 3 months ago. I hope you enjoy it and I'll update when I try something new or buy anything.

Feel free to suggest games to play if any spring to mind!

As many people in this world, my only experience of board gaming was Monopoly and Risk (maybe a bit of Pit thrown in). This was all good and worked nicely when family came to stay but it was never worthy of any more time.

Then out of the blue, my parents thought that they should buy this. They also got the Friends and Foes expansion but that's rarely used. It was really good fun and is now played fairly regularly in this house and with friends.

One day my older brother came home, telling wondrous tales of D&D and all it could behold. I was fascinated by the idea and eventually saved to buy what I thought was the game he was talking about.

It wasn't the same game but it gets played sometimes on a rainy day.

Up until a few months ago, the games I have already listed were my only exposure to what was lurking in the world of cardboard and plastic. About 2 or 3 months ago, a friend of mine told me about Magic, the card game he'd played a demo of on Xbox-Live or something, so we both bought a starter deck and got playing.

And it was solid playing. We'd play it where ever there was space. Bus stations, College tables, ping-pong tables. With the addiction building, we found more players and got around to build new decks with themes and things, which somehow led me to BGG.

And within the few days I had been on here after I found it, I had fallen in love with the Idea of BSG and tried everything I could to find a copy, which was proving harder than it should have been, looking back.

Eventually, I struck a deal with one of my Magic buddies and we both paid for a copy of BSG and might I say, as a former computer game nerd, I don't see any point in going back to the virtual world. The atmosphere, the interaction and requirement for people to by around to play makes board games like this so much more interesting.

I was in love.

And here we are today. Plans to expand my tiny collection with more FFG games and a euro or two, When I have the money. I have a full day nerd-out planned for tomorrow with my fellow BGG's and would like to thank this wonderful site for getting me here!
