I'm pretty sure this will have been done before, but seeing as I'm too lazy to do an in-depth search I'll start one here too.
Do we have an introduce yourself thread? Something saying who you are, where you are from and anything we think makes up the fuller picture of who we are.

I'll start shall I?

I'm 42, Male and live in North Wales.
Though in the grand scheme of things this life is relatively new, we only moved here 4 years ago after living in the center of the UK (Mansfield, Notts) for 37 years. One day we took a punt and decided to have a lifestyle change and started looking for somewhere pretty. From putting our house on the market to moving it took 60 days, so we firmly believe fate was guiding us in some way.
It's only in the last year and a half I've really got into board gaming and I attribute some of that to the move. In Mansfield it was very easy not to be progressively social and get involved because I'd grown up there and knew enough people I didn't need to expand my social circle. When we moved however one of the things we said, for the children and the family, was we needed to make more of an effort. Nothing really seem to fit for the first two years although we did start fostering and that bought it's own social circle of local carers. Then I happened upon a Wil Wheaton's tabletop and bought Ticket to Ride,
After that it all seemed to click. Not only was it a great excuse for getting out and meeting new people, but some of these games were great to pull out with the children who probably never got that one to one interactions at their own homes and it has been great at improving all of their social skills, thinking skills and life skills (loosing, winning, debating, planning)

I love this site but still haven't got into the full swing of it, I'm pretty sure Rahdo was going to do a video on it. My wife does online forums really well and has made some really good friends who have come into the real life too. Over time I'd love that to be the case here so when people come travelling to Wales they can swing by and play more games.

I could go on, really I could.

What about you lot then? What do you think makes you you?

Yeah, I searched for it, but couldn't find it. I'm pretty sure I was the one that started the thread... but I could be wrong about that. It would definitely only have the OLD school folks in it, and probably a good majority of the people in it don't play any more.

ohh, so old it didn't get moved to the village square. which is fair, since I didn't ever finish going thru the ww thread to label the things Jmilum should move. Some days I just let my peeps down.

Hah, I knew it wouldn't have been an original idea. What makes it even funnier is I realise I stuck this in the wrong forum. I'll just copy it into the right one.

Which forum did you think you were introducing yourself to? Because if you wanted werewolf this was the right forum. If you didn't want werewolf, well it seems mean to say, but you were wrong, you did want werewolf.

no it's not mean at all, it's axiomatic, that's why I realised I'd stuck it in the wrong forum. Therefore, not werewolf.

In the off topic forum that most sites have. I guess I read down and saw The Village and must have thought that was the name of an off topic hangout, I didn't see it was a subset off anything else. I do now though.

Well come join a Werewolf game, and find a whole new sub-section of this gaming site. We are very friendly, and only bite if you look tasty.

Well, it is an off-topic hangout which branched out of the WW forum about two and a half years ago. I don't think there are any restrictions or exclusivities involved as to who may post here. (Despite what Val implied.) We don't claim souls as Chit-Chat does (probably what you were looking for), so we do have that going for us.
