It seems like I have been playing games since the womb (solo games, then).
My first games were of the type that were available at the time eg: Ludo / Snakes and Ladders / Tiddly Winks / Blow Football / Happy Families / Old Maid etc.
As I grew older (in body only, some would say) I progressed to the popular games of the time, the (late)50's/(early)60s, (TV tie-ins mostly), Z Cars / Emergency Ward 10 / Muffin the Mule (apparently it's acceptable these days) / Four Feather Falls etc.
Then came the Swinging 60's and while many of my contempories were indulging themselves. I and a few close friends were getting high, playing such classics as, Risk / Scoop / Cluedo / Careers / Buccaneer / Formula 1 etc.
Yes ok, I admit it, M*@oly.
Since then I have not looked back (except to see if they were gaining on me) and my addiction / obsession has kept me happy and sane (what!).
These days I play an eclectic mix of game type, from Trivia and party type games to Euro style games and everything in between. Card games are a favourite. (check my Hot 10).
When it's time to meet the Great Game Designer (no, not you Reiner, sorry) I shall have my ashes put in the Planet Steam box and placed in the grounds of the Mansions of Madness. And I hope the Great Designer has a deck of cards to hand 'cause I 'aint gonna let the End Game stop me.
My 'HOT 10' is a list of my top 10 card / dice games.
.I'm sorry but I only trade within the EU.Unless something itches my scratch.
