I graduated from Penn State in May of 2008. It was there one of my roommates first turned me on to Euro games. Actually, that's not totally accurate. When Carcassonne was given away for free on the Xbox 360 Arcade (during November 2007) I immediately downloaded it. Who wouldn't? It's a free game. After my first play I was hooked. I proceeded to learn all about it and other designer board games.
Enter my roommate who had, in the past, mentioned playing Settlers, Bohnanza, Bang! and other games I never heard of. However, with my new found interest, I was more than willing to play. I enjoyed these games a lot more than the typical board games I was used to. That Christmas, Santa brought me several games. Upon returning to school for my final semester there was never a shortage of games or players.
Now that I've graduated, moved, and live with new people, it's my responsibility to make gamers out of them. I also have taken an interest in solitaire games as I know I'm always willing to play and my roommates may not be around. I'm constantly looking for games that I will enjoy to expand my game library.
