My hammer listened to Amon Amarth and became Mjölnir
My men are dying and I am crying but maybe if we throw more bodies at the enemy they will drown in our blood.

Boardgame timeline

@7-15 : Heroquest, Space Quest, Key to the kingdom, Risk, Stratego, Chess, many other well known boardgames from Ravensburger and family of Monopoly, Hotel...

@15 year old I started playing Magic for a few years and picked up other ccg's : Vampire TES, Star Wars Decipher TCG .

@University i picked up playing Magic again. Played mostly with Mathijs.

I played Axis&Allies for the first time with Peter and Carcasonne with Ellen.
The point of no return started when I bought a copy of Settlers of Catan around 2004. I also replayed Heroquest with friends and tried a heavier game: Civilization the boardgame, but that one sucked.

@2005 i became bgg member.
Other better games followed in 2005 like Twilight Imperium , Arkham Horror , Age of Napoleon , Hannibal: rome vs carthage, Puerto Rico. Played mostly with Mathijs, Dries, Bram or Lawrence.
Dungeon Twister was a game we played frequently too.
Special mention goes to Twilight Struggle that I played many times with Dries.

@2006 I tried a new cardgame: Hecatomb but it didn't become popular and died. Also playing magic dwindled around 2006-2007/8.

At the end of 2007 I tried to pick up magic again with Heny but that dwindled too. I picked up some more heavy eurogames like Caylus and Agricola at that time. I played with Floris, Elisabeth, Bart, Bram, Mathijs, Dries.

@2008 Shadows over Camelot was really popular. I moved to a new appartment and so grew my collection too.
