I have always enjoyed playing games but never knew that there was this whole world of Euro and Ameritrash games out there until I stumbled across BGG about 3 years ago while I was trying to look up some info on Heroscape. I wish I had the time and friends to play every game listed in the top 100. This has become my favorite web site and I am always amazed at how friendly and helpful everyone is on BGG.
I do most of my gaming with about 5 friends and of course my family. My most common opponent is my 10 year old daughter. She loves to play about anything with her current favorites being Ticket to Ride and Dominion. I really enjoy games like Twilight Struggle, C+C:Ancients, Memoir 44, Battle Cry, and Heroscape. Although I could play game after game of Dominion and not get tired of it. I love learning and trying new games and will play anything once.
I also enjoy playing basketball, softball, tennis, volleyball, and biking. I love watching pro football and have recently got hooked on FIFA soccer. I'm always looking for new gaming buddies so if your ever in the Omaha, Nebraska area and want to play some games, send me a geekmail.
My favorite local game stores are The Game Shoppe and The Coliseum. Both of them have large open gaming rooms.
