Hello fellow board game aficionados.

I am a long time lurker and first time poster.
My change of heart to reveal myself stems one half from boredom and
the other half from a newly found motivation to share my love for board games with other people.
Starting with the new year I will have more time on my hands which in return means more time for one of my passions.

Board games are fun, for sure, but they provide for me - and in my world - much more. It is a small escape from my everyday routine, one of many activities I can enjoy with my spouse and even a social statement about the human relationship with technology for me.

I am 26 years old and live in the countryside of Germany. It is very peaceful around here.

Looking back to the early days, my introduction into the world of gaming was a rocky one, filled with a love-hate relationship for many different games.
Until this year I only scratched the surface of this hobby.
While settlers of catan, monopoly, phase 10, ticket to ride, risk and many other basic and gateway games were well known to me, it was reading up on this website what ultimately lead me to dig deeper.

I know I am committing to a whole new world and that my way will be a very long one but as soon as I find my own preferences and what kind of style suits me best it's already worth it.
I am looking forward to many many hours of fun.
Hopefully with my old and new board games as well as with this community.

After writing this message I will head over to the recommendations thread and elaborate a little bit more.

I am glad to finally be here,
P

Howdy Peter, Welcome to being active. Have fun and perhaps we will run into each other again on the site.

Hello Peter,

You might want to subscribe to the Hot Deals Europe forum: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/1177627/boardgamegeek/hot...

We post deals from online sellers or shops, some gone in a few minutes, others last longer. There's a focus on UK and German sellers, especially Amazon. So if you want to save a few Pfennigs, and expand your collection, it's a good place to start.

Cheers,
Jon.
