I am an alumni of Penn State University.
I was first introduced to modern board games in college when my friend Sam taught a game of wits and wagers and who later taught me agricola. Unfortunately it was after my first purchase of Zombies!!! Comic Swap at Penn State carried a bunch of board games that i would research online. One of these was a game called Descent: Journeys in the Dark. I fell in love with this game and became hungry for more games. I was lucky that penn state had a board gaming club where i learned battlestar galactica, arkham horror, and others and i was lucky that my friends loved learning these new games too.
I love introducing my friends and new people to these games the resistance
is a great party game like Mafia that gets other people introduced to board gamesticket to ride
-easy to teach game that is great as a gateway game.lords of waterdeep
is the best way to introduce your friends to worker placement games and more complex games like agricola and euros.
I've met a lot of inspirational people on boardgamegeek who have gone above and beyond with their passion for gaming. This is a great community that I plan on sticking with for a long long time. Right now I'm working on learning to live for others and becoming selfless and willing to put other people's needs above my own each and every day.

Here is a copy of the message I sent:
WHAT IS THIS???
Im really at a loss for words....
and I can't imagine how much all of these games cost you
Is there a way I can thank you with a card? or visit you and shake your hand and give you a hug?
If you could care to explain why I got all these gifts let me know. All I know is i spent $200 for boardgamegeek secret santa and redditgifts and didnt get anything from redditgifts last xmas. But this is very very generous. I am still in shock..and so is my dad. Thank you so much and I will continue to work hard and serve others."
