I'm 51 years old, married and a father of two boys (ages 24 & 20).

I love board games. I'm playing games ever since I was a child.
I discovered the world of 'modern' games at 2005, and since then realy got into it.
I did a massive purchase to make up for all those lost years and came up to a nice collection.
I orgenize a games night once a month and attend similar meetings, with the same group, two more times a month. Apart from that I play games with my family and especially with my beloved wife. I play a game almost every day. I think that a day passing by without playing a game is a wasted one.
I run a blog in Hebrew about games called 'Gaming is a serious matter'.http://blog.tapuz.co.il/mishakim
I write about those monthly meetings, gaming session with my family and other thoughts I have about the subject.
You can learn from my microbadges that I am a theater fan, and not just by watching. I'm an amateur actor, participating in a drama workshop for several years and taking part in productions of the Rehovot Theater group.
I'm very proud about this microbadge I designed:
