I have been playing games as far back as I can remember. Always loved to and always will. In the mid to late 70's I stumbled upon war games, SPI and AH were the primary makers of the games that attracted me into the hobby. Thanks to them and a big thanks to BGG for assembling the most comprehensive games list.
In the winter of 2008 I made the decision to really put my enjoyment of the hobby to the test by reaching out and playing more. That decision was the best move (pun intended) I could have made. The gamers in the Eugene / Oregon area are wonderful and some really great friendships have been made over the past 7 years.
If you're in the Eugene/Springfield area please email me if you're interesting in gaming.
