A long time has passed since I last updated this. Games are now overflowing out of my office/board game storage room. They are piled in both kids closets and the top of the hall closet and on top of the pantry. And I cant seem to get enough, I've even got a pile in my office of just games I've never played. I want to, because how can I get rid of a game if I haven't played it to know if it's fun or not.
My kids are now 8 (Girl) and 4 (Boy), both of them love playing games with mom and dad. We played Zooloretto
the other day, the 8 year old did well on her own and the 4 year old was on my wife's team. And as you may notice my looking at my collection/last 10 games played I own a fair amount of kids games. And try to play them frequently with my children.
My wife still enjoys gaming, though has asked I try to trim the collection which I try to do but it's so hard. She like more gateway style game such as Ticket to Ride
, Stone Age
, and Catan
. She is up for playing most games atleast once, but some like Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game
she barely got through.
A long time ago in a land far far away....
I played some board games as a kid. Then we didnt play any, I got a job went to high school and got married.
I was in a video game store because I love video games, and I saw on the shelf in the corner Carcassonne
it seems to catch my eye every time I went in there. Low and behold one day I decided to purchase it. Best decision I made in a long time. I am currently at about 400 games and expansions and the number grows all the time.
I have two little kids. I get to play a small variety of games with my 5 year old. She seems to like dice games; her current favorites seem to be "The Yellow Dice Game"
and "The Missionary Game"
. She also enjoys the classic little kid games; Pretty Pretty Princess
, Candy Land
, and Snakes and Ladders
. My 18 month old son's favorite things to do with games so far is to eat the pieces and throw them.
I usually only play games with my wife of 11 years or one other couple. And it's always after 8 (bedtime) when we start.
I like a variety of games. I like them to have a fun theme and feel like they are quality and im not just playing with junk. Even the one print and play I made I wanted it to be quality. Last year I made Zombie Plague
and feel like I did pretty good for my first print and play.
I love to thrift and have found many cool games that way. Also love to trade.
Some of my favorite games that I own in no particular order are:Zombies!!!CarcassonneKiller Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic CarrotMunchkinAgricolaZoolorettoBattleground: Crossbows & Catapults War Chest Starter SetFluxxThunder RoadStrategoPitchCarNiagara
I hope this tells you a little more about me and my gaming.
