Greetings Geek of the Week #313 - h00sha.

I enjoyed playing Snakes and Ladders and Monopoly as a youngster and played a few other games growing up - never really enjoyed the other major mass market games though (risk, clue, etc.) I remember Survive and a space game that I only have a vague recollection of. Played some D&D in junior high, really not much. Became aware of CCGs in the 90's but never played - wished I had someone to play with, but had other priorities.

Fast forward to about 2005/2006 and I'm looking for a game that my daughter will like. Started with Cranium for kids. Then my employer at the time was running a team building event that was based on monopoly. I figured that she was ready start learning about money, so we get monopoly. Really loved it! But it gets boring fast so now I'm surfing the internet for board games... something calling me, telling me there is more.

Found some positive reviews and references to Settlers of Catan and vaguely remember seeing it for sale at the mall. Buy it. Love it! Buy 2 more copies for friends at Christmas that year (2007).

Life goes on and we play games occasionally. Looking for something more again. Now it's near the end of 2009 and I stumble upon BGG. I decide that this site is for geeks - "that's not me" (denial) - But I plan on using it as a reference for my next game purchase... decide on Ticket to Ride, with no intent to go further into the hobby.

Everything snowballs in 2010 and a gamer is born. Started logging plays 01/01/2011. At some point, stopped logging expansion plays seperately and just included them in base game plays.

I think that consideration for how strongly one would recommend a game to others is missing from the BGG personal rating scale.
