Everything started around 1980,at my cousins Fotis birthday party.He took for gift,a boardgame from a Greek publisher called "to kalo paixnidi",that was it-the "bug" got me! The same night i grabed the inside booklet by Ravensburger.For a long time i was looking these photos imagining what was these games about (even creating my own paper versions)

A couple of years later (i was 14) came a gift for me this time by my aunt Niki...Grand Mastermind (chess you are not alone any more!)

My first purchase was Diplomacy by a new shop in the center of our town Lilipoupoli (20 years later owner's daughter and mine were schoolmates at Anemoscala .There,we had a good talk about the boardgame scene in Greece.I was so jealous when he told me that every year visits Nuremberg arrrh

1990 finds me shoping Robo Rally in KAISSA (regards to Thodoris),and then the "bug" takes a small break...you know,when you are 20-25 you have many interests...

1996 and internet came to my life.On ebay a guy was selling Grand Mastermind...The "bug" awake! I bought 2!!! copies asap.With a little more "googling" and funagain came up (my regards to Magma,too)... the rest are history.

Since then,big/medium/small gameboxes, travel from all over the world at my home.

2003 i met a greek gameguru,Kosmas(aka.teacher or friedrich).Me "collector",he guru,we(not wii) make a very good company,very good orders and (of course) friday night sessions!

My lovely wife,Rachel and my goddesses,Dimitra and Eleni are casual players -not geeks- but there is always hope cool

I dislike people who cheat in games,i cant stand "boardgames experts" and game snobs (whenever i "met" someone on forums or else i delete my posts and go away...)

2008 begins with a big decision: Two and only two game-orders per year (May and November)...lets see... sorry i cant do it blush

2010 was a sad year.My mother lost her final battle with cancer.Friday night sessions had stopped.One thing that i will never forget is the support that i had from my family and from people of this community (especially from GreekGuild)

2011 Friday night session are back with Eleni , Elina and Kostakis . Also with members of Greek Guild organize monthly sessions at Plahouse in Thessaloniki

2012 The Greek economic crisis is here to stay awhile...stay forever(?) Few visits at yiafka and monthly sessions at Hobby Games keeps me in touch with our hobby and the good friends I made through this.Τhe letters in the instructions became smaller whistle

2013 more crisis,less yiafka and the only thing that has remained constant is our meetings at Hobby Games
A target for 2014...a video/board game room

Monthly sessions now at eFantazy without me (family and job have priority).A summer lumbago crisis brought objective of last year (playroom) at 50% complete.I hope that 2015 will be a better year...

boardgames rehab,few sessions,fewer purchases and total absence from guild meetings thumbsdown
my only achievement : playrooms start up with Siromist guest!
target for 2016: relapse meeple

Still Gaming...
