Hi guys and gals, I have been lurking in the background for awhile but now I must come forward having never played many board games growing up, as a family of 6 (parents and 2 siblings) we were outside from mornign till night playing etc growing up in rural Ireland, although sounding like the best place to play a lot of board games laugh was all go go go....

Now that I am almost thirty have a grown up job, getting married next year to my beautiful Austrian fiancee, who grew up playing nearly every board game possible and has really encouraged my hew hobby in card/board games.

So far we play chess, scrabble with friends, Battle Line, Rivals for Catan and most recently Twilight Struggle. It is TS that made me tyoe this as I wanted to thank Randor a member here who i got it from )also immaculate packaging) who could not have been more helpful and even reserved it for me while I was on holidays, so if my time here is around people like this than I am really looking forward to it.

Cheers,

W

PS sorry for the wall of text whistle

Just don't make these kinds of mistakes while reading board game rules, and you should be good to go for this hobby.

So you have a black sheep in your family as well? Just joking if you take my comment seriously. I have a brother I don't want to claim as one but I'm sadly forced to for the parents sake

Well anyways, welcome to the board
