Hi all

A few years a go it seemed that the stereotypical board game player were unsociable males.

As it has become more popular the last few years it now seems that the public image is shifting.

To get an idea about the average person on here I wanted to ask you guys about yourselves.

I'm a 26 year old male, have my own home, live with my fiancé. I'm 6 foot 3 and weigh about 18 stone.

I work in an IT Department and on weekends I volunteer as a Police Officer (which is really enjoyable. You meet all kinds of people and deal with things you wouldn't normally even see as a regular person).

I'm not up to date with any consoles, but I do have a decent PC. I mostly play card games on that though. Hearthstone and Chronicle.

I don't have any board games, but i'm going to be getting some soon.

Sounds like an alternate universe to me.

26 and not a single board game?

I am a man and my name is Matt. I know what you're thinking, isn't Matt a girls name? Well, it isn't.

My eyes are hazel. I have a wife. We have 3 kids. I own a really nice picnic blanket.

I would like to hear more about this picnic blanket. I have a picnic basket that could use a partnering blanket.

I have shaved my head before.

Wait.

No.

That wasn't me.

I have run a dozen marathons, including London, Chicago, Boston, and New York.

My favorite author is Haruki Murakami.

I'll take a maple old-fashioned donut over a jelly donut any day.

I am 24. Married, no kids. I make my husband play board games with me sometimes. He doesn't enjoy it as much as I do.

The only annoying thing about that is that in order to get him to play I have to compromise with what games he wants to play, which are typically the same games over and over again because, due to his lack of interest, he doesn't want to learn a new game. I am trying my best to con him into learning a new game through any means necessary.

Don't you know who I am? I am Chocolate-Chip Charlie! My hands are registered with the mid-New Jersey police as lethal weapons, and I eat them guns for breakfast!


I like to use obscure quotes to communicate with others.

I am an unsociable male. It's not for lack of trying, I just have anxiety issues. You would think I would have an easier time on the internet than IRL, but for some reason I don't. Typically I lurk. I'm not just using board games for fun, I'm also trying to use them as a way to break out of my shell and socialize more. I plan on joining a local board gaming group, and i've been up to 1 game night so far at my FLGS. I haven't tried a ton of games yet, so I don't really have a favorite. I played pathfinder once and loved it, so we are about to give descent a try since it has a bit of the battle aspect of it. I used to play MTG but I stopped because it seemed like whoever had the most money to spend on exotic cards, was typically the person winning. That and my favorite part was crafting decks from what I had, where everyone I played with just stole ideas off the internet.

I'm 30 years old, and me and my girlfriend are in the process of buying our first house, so we can start having kids. She is convinced she will have twins.

I work for a company that sells laser cutters/engravers. I have an associates degree in electronics technology, and I feel like it would be better put to use elsewhere, but I don't do so well in interviews.

So far I am loving this site, and I hope I am able to contribute!

I'm the stereotype.

22 year old guy stuck in a rut, almost nothing to show for it, holds a low opinion of everything.

...I've also saved the Earth from multiple alien invasions.
