I found this place a few days/a week ago and since I had time today, I figured I'd go through it, and look at some stuff. About all I have to say at this point is wow. I am completely overwhelmed with the vast amount of information on here.

On top of all that, it makes me feel better about myself. I've loved games ever since I was a little kid. It's a secret dream of mine to become a game designer. I catch a lot of flack from my family and friends (most in jest) about my hobby. It's good to know that I'm not the only "grown up" (I'm only 18) that loves playing games. So thank you all, very much, for that.

I plan on coming back here very often, and becoming as active as my time will allow. This seems like a great place to be.

Welcome! I stumbled here almost 20 months ago, and I check it daily, if possible.

I just want to know how you became a grandpa at 18. Are you from Arkansas?

How did I become a grandpa. Well, that's a very interesting story. I spent a lot of time with my grandpa when I was little, and he really rubbed off on me, morally and fashionably. I was at a party about two years ago, sitting at the table, doing a crossword puzzle, smoking a pipe, wearing my blue ivy cap, horn rimmed glasses, and cardigan. A friend of mine comes up to me and sits on my lap talking about how I remind him of his grandpa. The rest, as they say, is history. Now, all my friends refer to me as Grandpa.

Well you'll never get on Jerry Springer with a story like that.

Welcome to BGG. If you had any disposable income before you registered, we'll take of that.

yes, a definite welcome. It's been about a year and a half or more since I stumbled upon this, and it's turned my life around. I was going to start up a group to play some games, and happened upon this. It's turned my life (and wallet) upside down.

I lurk a lot more than I post, but I've started becoming a lot more active. I'll never get the same publicity as a Tom Vasel, or even a Grog, but I'm doing my part.

Don't listen to them - where do you think game designers come from? Best of luck and welcome.

Oh yeah. I know. It's just joking around most of the time. I think that board games have the potential to become a major staple in popular entertainment once again, and it's my plan to be one of the people that makes that happen.

I thought game designers are from Mars, and game players are from Venus...

The first step to fixing the problem is admitting you have one.

Of course *I* don't have a problem, but everyone else here does!

...and the great thing is you can stop any time you like. It's not like it's an addiction, is it. It's just willpower. I could stop. I could. I could. You know - if I wanted to.

Divorce is just part of the circle of game life.

Game gets bought -> Game gets played -> Game gets played *alot* -> Divorce -> Game gets donated by vengeful Ex -> Game gets bought

See?
