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. Pit and Rack-O were always family favorites but it was the Milton Bradley American Heritage series with Dogfight, Broadside and Battle-Cry 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.
