Anglo-Manx gamer. Began gaming with D&D/SPI/Chaosium games back in England in the 70's.
Long hiatus from the hobby during the 80's. University, beer, bands, girls, the usual story.
Dragged back into the gaming hobby by
who I contacted to try to find copies of the games I'd sold off or given away during my dissolute years.
After I dodged the bullet of something that he sent me called Magic The Gathering, I bought from him a variety of German boardgames in the early 90's - Hecht Im Karpfenteich, stuff like that, nothing too crazy. One day he announced: "I have this game you might like. It's called Settlers of Catan".
That was 1995. The rest is history...
