Like many people, I started playing board games as a kid; the standard Monopoly and Risk garbage, along with things like Candyland, Life, and Pay Day. By the time I was 12 or 13, I had lost all interest in these bland games and thought I was done with board games forever. In 2008, one of the guys I worked with invited me to a board game night. With nothing better to do that evening, I went along, fully expecting the stuff I was already used to. Instead, I was exposed to Carcassonne, Power Grid, and Ticket to Ride; a style of games I had never seen before. And I was instantly hooked. I started with a fairly small collection.

When I moved from Winnipeg to Calgary, I lost my regular gaming group and access to a lot of games. I quickly built up my collection, hoping to find others to play with again. I introduced my now-wife to modern day board games through a couple of games and she was immediately hooked as well. Our collection has since exploded with new games being added on a regular (perhaps a little too frequent) basis. It should be no surprise then that our house has a dedicated games room which you can read about in my Evolution of a Games Room blog.

In most cases, I tend to rate expansions at the same value as their base game unless I feel they add something to the game or are just a really bad expansion. While I record every one of my plays, I record the plays for just the base game and never the expansions as I tend to always use them once they're mixed in. For games like Carcassonne, recording a single play for the base game and every single one of those expansions would be too time consuming for no additional value.

My FLGS: Sentry Box
Online stores of choice: BoardGameBliss, Great Boardgames, and Starlit Citadel
