I'm in my early mid forties, married with one daughter.

I grew up with boardgames as my parents encouraged my sister and me to play. We played all the classics such as Monopoly, Game of Life, Totopoly, connect 4 amongst many others.

Into my 20's I started playing Risk with two friends. As we became more proficient at playing, the games would often end in stalemate, even after several evenings of play. As soon as one player became powerful, the other two would knock them down.

In my late 20's came Catan. Introduced by a friend we played this week in week out for around 6-7 years, adding expansion after expansion and even making our own 'Super' Catan which consisted of basically every tile we could lay our hands on. I still play the base game on occasion but find it has major issues with runaway leader(s) and one player effectively eliminated early.

In January 2005 I ordered ticket to ride and Puerto Rico. Only owning 1 other 'Euro' at this point (Domaine) I decided to see what else was out there. Shortly afterwards, discovering the Geek, I finished 2005 with another 50+ games and the beginning of a major new hobby.

My collection now numbers around 250 games (inc. Expansions) and I am finding it increasingly difficult to control the collection size and find space for all these great games.

I've realised that I'm not a fan of co-operative, card only or 2-player games. I do like some card games with boards though such as as St.Petersburg, Speicherstadt and 7 Wonders! I prefer 3-5 player games, 4 being the sweet-spot, typically mid-weight Euros and centered around a board and particularly ones with beautifully designed components, artwork and of course a fantastic mechanism!

My pet hate is poor production quality, often produced in China, though more recently European manufacturers have dropped the 'weight' of components.

My Current favourites are:
