Be seeing you... -Alphonse
I'm a 39-year-old gamer who grew up in the Toronto area and is now living in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories. I've played board games all my life and RPGs since I was eleven years old. When it comes to board games, I started like most people -- with the Parker Bros., Hasbro and Mattel standards (although somehow I have never played Candyland). With RPGs, I cut my teeth on the mid-Eighties version of Red Box D&D.
I've almost always been the GM for my RPG group, and over the years, I've played a variety of the games available on the market, but I honestly have far more RPGs on my shelf than I'll ever get a chance to play in one lifetime.
With board games, I got into Supremacy and Axis & Allies as a teen, and then didn't really play board games much until I discovered Euros around 2002.
