I've always enjoyed games. It started with Role Playing Games (RPGs) back in my teens: D&D, Star Frontiers, Marvel Superheroes, etc. As I entered college time was at a premium. So, I traded longer RPGs for shorter Collectible Card Games (CCGs). It was first Magic: The Gathering that grew on my game group, then Middle Earth CCG, Babylon 5, Netrunner and especially Legends of the Five Rings (L5R). In fact, I playtested for L5R in the early days and even entered many tournaments.

As time progressed, my time became even more precious and it was through one of my CCG magazines that I discovered The Settlers of Catan, a shorter game than CCGs that cost less money. This led to my purchase of Manhattan, Modern Art, Elfenland... you get the picture. Eurogames were for me and I've been playing them ever since. I led several groups in Champaign, Illinois and carried the tradition of leading game groups with me when my family moved to Vermont.

I currently lead a small group of Eurogamers (4-8 people) in our monthly gaming group called the Upper Valley Board Gamers. We intentionally keep the group small so we can all play / socialize together. Since 2003 we have played on the 2nd Fridays of the month from 6:30 PM until Midnight. When my better half is out of town for an annual get-together, then I hold Bermacon - a great gaming experience. Bermacon I was first held in 2012. I also attend a few local conventions every year to play new games, run events, meet other people and refresh my game supply. These conventions include Unity Games (Feb), Carnage (Nov) and LobsterTrap (Nov). I also attend a lot of Green Mountain Gamer events - ask me if you want to know more.
