I love games of all types (video, board, and card)!
Although I played board and card games as a kid, I didn't really start to get into the "board game scene" until a few years ago. I was heavy into LAN parties at the time and, after realizing at one that I'd spent 3 days in a room with 50 people and hadn't really talked to anyone, decided I wanted more human interaction in my life.
I'm now a fan of everything from Euro games to Cheapass and everything in between. I've made the pilgrimage to GenCon every year since 2004 and have built up a great collection of games. I have even managed to bring my wife into the hobby and we play games like Blokus, Ticket to Ride, and Carcassonne around the house.
I've also made a number of friends through our mutual love of gaming and hope to add many more in the future!
