Started playing hex wargames as a young teen in the early '70's...my first game was the Avalon Hill game France 1940. With my keen interest in history, and my love for games I was hooked rather quickly. Soon I was buying wargames regularly from the big two in those days, Avalon Hill and SPI.
I later moved on to RPG's of many various flavors and eventually computer games. I have found that I enjoy all sorts of games as my mental relaxation of choice. Card games, Eurogames, Beer & Pretzel lite games to rules-laden monster wargames; basically if it's a game of some kind I'll give it a whirl. However deep down, I still have a strong love for the games I first started out with...good old hex-style wargames!
