Our family has always played a lot of games. My wife and I each grew up in families that played games. Our three children (a girl and two boys all born in the 80's) enjoy playing games with us and with their friends. I'm pretty sure my grandchildren will love playing Eurogames someday.
I was a teacher in Christian elementary schools for 16 years. Then I was a computer programmer (COBOL) for another 16. Now I'm a self-employed affiliate marketer, a church musician, proofreader, stamp collector, and very amateur photographer. I'm a Green Bay Packers fan the rest of the time. Well, Packers fan all of the time, but mostly on 16+ weekends each year.
We discovered Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne in 2006. I discovered BGG in 2006 too. My Top 10 includes my all-time favorites. My Hot 10 are normally my most-played games in the past month or so. My game ratings use the scale suggested by BGG.
