I was pretty lucky to have a gaming childhood.
My dad worked nights and during the day my grandparents took care of me. Papa(granddaddy) was into standard games. We played: Don't break the ice
, dominoes, hungry hungry hippos, Crocodile Dentist
, Operation, I don't remember ever learning chess so I assume I was taught fairly young.
Played Chinese checkers. I remember Papa taking all the marbles and dumping them over my head. With my grandmother shaking her head in the back ground. We just picked them up. I remember it being great.
I actually had Loopin Louie back in the day before it was a novelty item here on the geek.
Little older: Crossfire
and nerf guns.
I remember being in a skating rink and seeing this card game called Magic. I asked this kid I didn't know if he could teach me and he said, 'No, It's too complicated.'
I'm probably thankful for dodging that one.
Played a lot of trick taking games with family and still do.
Hearts: My stepdad and mom had a accounting firm and we would play 1995/8 Windows hearts together on the server. (more face to face games but I remember the couple serve games)
Played Spades with my highschool buddies on wrestling trips and some weekends.
(Pitch and Skat are my favorite card games now)
Boardgames took a back seat for a while until I found this site in 05. I don't remember if I searched for board games or not. Anyways
I remember trying to makes sense of this site and finding Cash n Gun$. It was just coming out and I thought the idea of pointing guns at your friends in a game was so cool. (My dad loves guns)
Finally figured out that the top 100 doesn't mean that it's my kind of game and have been getting all types of games since.
I love this website... I just wish games were free.
