In the beginning


there were card, dice and domino games.

Then came Monopoly, Cludo, and a whole slew of family board games.

I have a very small memory of seeing Escape from Colditzout on a table at a friend of my dad's... this might have been the seed?

I used to mess about with HO/OO scale soldier and tanks. But never got my act together to organise a war game using 'rules'.

Then in a military magazine (World at War?) I saw an advert for Panzer Leader. This looked amazing... HEXES?! Soon I had bought it along with Tactics II (not such a good buy!).

Then came Richthofen's War which at the time was very exciting but soon the game play dissolved into a sort of who could out turn the other.

Next stop University where to my delight I discovered Up Front, Squad Leader, Rise and Decline of the Third Reich, Sixth Fleet. From that point on I was sold.

Years later with family in tow i have played many wargames; the Euro classics and the American 'pretty' board games.

And now we have Combat Commander: Europe; Twilight Struggle; 7 Wonders amongst others.

In the late 1990's I was heavily into Babylon 5 Collectible Card Game... boy did I sink some cash into that!.

As a result I have a pile of paper and cards; and some of the best friends I have ever met
