About me,

I grew up playing board games. When I was 8, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics played an epic Eastern Conference final and my dad and I started playing Cribbage best of 7 Celtics v. Cavs every night. We did this for years, and it never got old. My dad died in October (2013) and I have his cribbage board sitting next to my desk. It is a constant reminder to me of him and his love of board gaming.

Euchre was a big game for me in high school and college, including time in Luxembourg. My game collection was so much more portable then! A deck of cards, a board with 2 tracks and 121 holes. Those were the days.

In law school, I picked up a cheap copy of diplomacy. As a show of our honesty (or naivety) we wrote and executed our own moves. That was my first tangle with a real strategy game. After law school, I spent a long weekend with friends in Ocean City, Maryland. We played Acquire and I was hooked. These are the days before eBay and the Internet, but I wanted a copy!

Thrift shops and mail order from Avalon Hill took me on my way to board game discovery.

In 2000, I had a group of friends from church that formed a game group. The first night, we played Axis and Allies. I knew there was better. I went out and found it.

What I found was Vino, then Pfeffersacke, then everything you find on this site today. That group became BOGA. The rest is history.
