My wife and I were inadvertently introduced to the world of "Eurogaming" christmas 2004, when we recieved Carcassonne as a christmas gift from some friends. We played three times in a row on our coffee table. Later that evening, a little googling for more information about the game brought us to the geek. And, with a list of expansion names in hand, we set out early the next day to buy a table to play games on, and as many Carcassonne expansions as we could find. And the rest,as they say, is history.
Since then our game collection has increased by leaps and bounds, we've enlarged our circle of friends, and generally, life has been good. Hooray for Eurogames!
We're now heading into out second year as board game geeks, and excitedly look forward to what the year will bring!
