I'm a long time gamer. I played standard american fare growing up, then some of the hobby games in the mid to late 70's. I spent a long time playing D&D, Champions and other RPGs in the late 70s to late 80's.
Then I took a break. College was over, I was away from all my buddies, I fell in love, had kids, bought a house. AD&D 3rd Edition came out.
I grabbed a few books for nostalgia's sake, found some players and started playing every other Friday. We did that for 3 years, and I got burned out. Its hard raising kids, working 40 or more, and running a D&D game. I wanted a hobby that didn't have so much overhead in time...
One day at a yard sale I saw Guillotine
for fifty cents. It had the WotC logo on it. Hmmmm...
It was fun, but a little light. Can't play that all night. Enter the dude at my FLGS. He hooked me up with Settlers, Carc, and a few card games. It was 2003. I found BGG in October. I stopped playing my D&D campaign in December.
Nine years later, and I could not be happier.
