You could say I grew up on board games, monster models, comic books and plastic army men. I started playing board games very early on in the 60's with my family and especially my brother
were always family favorites but it was the Milton Bradley American Heritage series with Dogfight
that left the biggest impression on me. Then in 1972 a junior high friend brought over PanzerBlitz
and I was introduced to the wonderful world of Avalon Hill games. Luftwaffe
soon followed as I continued playing through High School and then I added Starship Troopers
on into college where there were plenty of opponents in the dorms. Dungeon's and Dragons (Dungeons & Dragons Basic Rulebook (First Edition)
) was the big thing in college but I never took the time to get into it even though many of my friends were. Dating and playing bass in a couple different college rock bands took up much of my time from that point on but I never gave up my love of board games and those golden memories from my childhood in the 60's & 70's. Since then I would say that my brother
and I have become board game collectors as well as players, rebuilding our collections from our childhood and adding many more over the years.
