So.....after recently talking w/ a friend one night about our youth, the subject of Board Games came up. After discussing all the great games we loved to play as a Kid, I had the urge to own one of them again. Stop Thief, I know it is a cheezy old game, But that is how it started. I had collected all the game master Series games as a Kid, and my parents had a whole closet full of old board games i used to bust out w/ my friends. Now I have found myself buying up all sorts of games on Ebay......with no end in sight. I have about 30 or so now......w/ many more on the way.

This site is soooooo perfect for me to investigate titles I find i have never heard of before........as well as getting in touch w/ other board gamers out there. So, I guess i am also saying THANKS!......this looks like a great community. Hope to become a contributing part of it.

Hi, and welcome, Aaron. And say goodbye to hundreds of dollars you will spend in great games laugh

This site is great for finding out about new and exciting games you would never know of by following just the mainstream shelves in your local toy store.

Just had my first "Pandemic" game yesterday.....loved it. Been hooked on Catan, as well as my friends. Have gotten lots of "newer" games added to my wish list......and cannot wait to try them out. Esp. the war game/dungeon crawler type games.

This hobby requires that you turn, er, um, lure, I mean, recruit several unsuspecting individuals into our ever burgeoning ranks.

Don't let your acquisition rate outstrip your ability to bring new games to the table! I am at the tipping point now with 3 recently acquired unplayed games and more in the mail.

I could be in trouble. Don't let this happen to you. whistle

Well, dont be like me...the "collection aspect" of this hobby can be extreme...one day I ordered so many games on my list that I couldn't remember for a moment if I had already ordered Struggle of Empires which was on the list.

Ebay makes it even worse...once you not only buy the games that you really want but also the games that "are a good deal" then it is all going downhill.

I (hope) managed to convince myself that I need to stick with a maximum of 4 new games per month...except for Christmas and October (Essen)...which are conveniently around the corner...so lets see how long this lasts! Darn addicts!

I loved Stop Thief back in the day also. It can even make for a good solitaire game.

I know there are those out there with hundreds of unplayed games and I hope I never get to that point. I am not a collector. My games are there to be played and I make it a point to play every game I own. If I do not see myself playing it again, I trade it away.

Hi Aaron! Welcome to BGG. You're right - it is a great community. And it sounds like you are starting off on a very popular boardgaming path, Catan>>Pandemic>>??? Certainly the way I started!

Have some to buy a microbadge, or save up toward an avatar!

In other news, the world needs a Stop Thief! iPhone app. It was a pretty sweet game, but I'm betting a lot of the old electronics are dying now. I'm sure it would make a solid 10-20 bucks....

Welcome to BGG. Please feel free to ask/post any questions you have about ANY game. I have found BGG'ers to be some of the most kind and helpful people on the internet. The ones that I have been fortuntate enough to meet in person have turned out to be great gaming buddies.

WARNING: it sounds like you have already drank the gaming serum but BGG itself is so ADDICTIVE that its not even funny:shake There has not been a day in the past few years that I got on the net and didnt check BGG. Lots of times I should be doing other things on the net and I find myself perusing BGG instead.

Wonderful site and wonderful community: NUFF SAID

A dozen UNplayed games ? What's the hold up ????

I hope I am not sliding down that slippery slope. Just acquired Space Hulkeath Angel and Last Night On Earth. But have learned and played both already. Of course I also have Chaos in the Old World and 7 Wonders and Citadels "on the way" (birthday wishlist). I may be putting alot of stress/demands on my innocent lil' game group in the coming weeks.

Anyhow , welcome aboard. I am fairly new myself and I just love this place !
