I bought my first game one year ago at a Barnes and Nobles. It was Above and Below. Don’t really know what inspired us. We were bored on a Wednesday.
Haven’t looked back.

And my collection is totally reasonably sized.

I don’t need a special occasion to play a game, but let’s say that game of Whitehall Mystery I just finished was for your anniversary.

Looking at Zach’s game comments, he’s done well on playing lots, and there are some weighty games in there as well.

Though not Case Blue weighty.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I don’t even know what Case Blue is

I’m very excited for the direction it’s going. It seems to be in the beginning of a revolution. I think the next decade is going to be a very exciting time for gamers.

Arcadia Quest was my first disappointment. It’s not a 2 player game!! Don’t lie to me CMON! Do I still have something mean written for that one? I tried to delete all those.

That's awesome! You should give The Campaign for North Africa by Richard Berg a quick try if you haven't already. It might work as a filler game.
Best of luck!

That was my gateway game. Did I say above and Below? I meant the campaign for North Africa. Honest mistake.

It's all good, I was just messin' with you. I went into your owned games and that was the first game I saw because of the rating and the lengthy comment. I've had a few let downs myself.

I’ve played every game I’ve ever bought at least once except two... not including the ones I just bought. Pandemic legacy season 1 is still unplayed because it’s such a huge commitment and I don’t even like pandemic (only tried the app though.)
The other is wartime battle for something vale. My wife refused to play this with me and usually I’d two hand a game to try it but since it’s real time I don’t think that would work too well.

Hey the years not over yet!!!
I’ve been trying to slow down a little bit. Not because I want to, but because we literally are running out of space.

There’s at least 2-7 more games. Probably 2 and me just dreaming about the other 5.

Congratz. Raises a glass to salute you. Enjoy the many years to come.
You are qualified to nitpik mechanisms and diss monopoly now.

Great first game to start the hobby too.
