I’m a thirty five year old male who started playing Chess in my early twenties. It wasn’t long after, that I discovered Board Game Geek and made an impulse buy of Europe Engulfed. I’d never played a real board game before so at the time the rules were too complex for me. I also had no opponent to make it worth my while to learn the game. Subsequently it sat in my cupboard and was eventually sold to help fun-d a move to Australia.

It was in Australia that I discovered Go whilst watching the Russell Crowe film ‘A Beautiful Mind’. I headed to the local internet café and logged onto Board Game Geek to research this amazing new game. I ended up buying myself a nice Go set and to even things out, a Chess set too. As I was researching Go I couldn’t help but notice all the other games that I’d never heard of. Remembering my experience with Europe Engulfed I decided to start simple and ended up purchasing some gateway games such as Pentago XL and Ticket to Ride. They got me started and it has been a slippery slope since then.

I’ll gladly play any type of game but my personal favourites are low luck brain burners. I think at heart I’m an abstract player and always will be but I do enjoy a little theme occasionally. With a keen interest in history I’m also partial to a light war-game.

Since I've started playing board games I’ve come to realise, to have great games you need great opponents.

Finally, my gaming attitude can be summed up well with this quote from Sepp Herberger:

"Nach dem Spiel ist vor dem Spiel"
