I guess it's about time I wrote this. I've always loved games and, when I was younger, played whenever I could convince someone else to play. Board games, card games, strategy games (I remember playing Risk a few times, even), puzzle games... Really just about anything. As I got older, I had no gaming partners except for the odd card game.
I mostly play online these days, whether through an established interface or good old ingenuity (of friends, mostly). Online is definitely not preferred, but it works in the interim until gaming partners appear.
