I'm Rick, a Bellevue, Nebraska native.
I have been a LEGO fan since infancy while my love for board games came a little later. My parents played simple board games with me while I was growing up including Monopoly, Checkers, Battleship, Clue, and many other childhood staples. I owe my current love of board gaming to Mage Knight, Magic the Gathering, and Agricola, each of which opened new doors and presented me with deeper levels of involvement in gaming. I have only been seriously collecting board games for the past few years, and I have BGG to thank for that. If it wasn't for this site I would have never experienced how truly amazing the board gaming community is, let alone discovering one actually existed in the first place! As you can see by my collection I am primarily a Fantasy-themed board game fan. I also enjoy a little sci-fi and historical as well. The 'type' of board game doesn't matter much to me. I will play Euro-games, Ameri-Trash games, CCGs, LCGs, miniatures, wargames, just about anything. My collection is ever-growing. I started by picking up games of the past that peaked my interest, but have recently come to join the 'cult of the new'. It is hard to be a collector of many different hobbies.
