My wife is pretty awesome. Not only did she reignite my long-dormant love for boardgames a couple of years ago by buying Ticket to Ride, she really likes Lords of Waterdeep, and for my birthday last year, she gave me Agricola plus insert organizers for Eclipse and Waterdeep/Scoundrels of Skullport. On top of all that, now that our boys (11 and 8) are interested in AD&D, she agreed to create a character and join in the adventuring with them.

All that's remaining is to get her to play Twilight Struggle with me....

Even though we don't always share gaming similarities...I always want to start a game and prefer games lasting at least 90 minutes, and she only plays when her head is clear and doesn't like games with 60+ min play time...my wife still puts up with my obsessions, can kick my but if I'm not at my best (see her last 70-35 PT dominance in Dominion), and can talk strategy and games with me. There's no one I'd rather sit across from exchanging passive aggressive threats than her.

She's pretty great at a lot of other things as well, but just sticking to the board game stuff.

On our third date she revealed that she play a Half Orc Paladin in a weekly gaming group. After that she couldn't get rid of me.

Every day that means me getting a gift of some sort she always buys me a game.

We play in a weekly DND group and play a game together at least one other night a week.

My husband indulges me in all my ridiculous hobbies, like finding tupperware in the woods and also paying far too much money for cardboard and bits of wood (and then letting all those bits take over the dining room table for long stretches of time). He is clearly the awesomest.

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.

We discovered gaming together, grew into the hobby together, and acquired our semi ridiculous collection together. Then she decided to take up painting our figures to make our games better. Then she got back into sewing to make bags n such. She took up camera work so we could start doing reviews. And perhaps most amazing of all she can get any game and expansions to fit in the box!

My wife helps me design games, plays deep games and beats me often, and lets me go to a game night, by taking the kids for the night one day each week.

Awesome enough that she didn't strangle me when I let her know last night that I've spent over $2K on games since the beginning of the year. gulp

Mines pretty cool. She will play anything from dominion to gallerist to terra Mystica. We play about 5 nights a week varying times per night. I really can't complain. She also gets me games as presents.

He's okay

He calls dibs on all of the dice bags I make for my auctions, but is a good sport at the fabric store. He'll try any game I buy. We go to farmers' markets, thrift stores, game stores, and book stores together. Even the little things are fun.

Awesome.

+ I have my own game room in her house.
+ There are plenty of games in every room... and more coming everyday.
+ We play games regularly.
+ On quiet holidays we play games everyday.
+ In most games I give her the 'pro-play' award - she engages and will often beat me.
+ She accepts that if her friends are round there will be board games and if I have folk round for games she wants to join us.
+ She shares my love for food and drink and theatre/art stuff.
+ She once let a dog tied to a tree loose so it could chase a butterfly. Which is longhand for: she shares my 'Chaotic Good' alinement.
+ She puts up with me and plays along.

- She doesn't like Dixit.
- She is a facist when it comes to (game) art. Alhambra is a big no.
- I tolerate Dolly Parton.
- I'm the 'Entertainment Manger', regardless of what I'm doing.
- She's never seen ET, swears and is misguided when it comes to mushrooms on toast.

All in all a keeper.

My missus used to play D and D with me. She dm a whole al qadim campaign. She plays board games with me and friends and although she prefers multilayer solitaire type euros with castles of burgundy and le havre her faves she will indulge me and play Arkham Horror and twilight struggle. In fact this week we tried out hannibal Rome vs carthage. Yep..she rocks.

My wife is awesome, but she hates games for the most part. I can get her to play every now and again, but usually a rare thing.

I'm single. Three cheers for bachelorhood! You can play unlimited games with your brother without having commitments to women. Ah the joys of being young and having overprotective parents.

You can't just throw this out there without context. Inquiring minds want to know.
