Looking back, I've always played board and card games. Careers, Life, Fat Chance, Dark Tower, in grade school; added Spades and Hearts in high school; and finally Euchre is grad school. But the revitalization of board games in my life happened in 1996 when I went into a boardgame shop in Bloomington, Indiana and walked out with a very bland looking game called The Settlers of Catan. The clerk at the store said it was the hottest game on the shelf and whether it's food, fashion or games I'm likely to take a chance when someone more knowledgeable gives advice. Now I have a good collection and a powerful nuerosis for games--thanks in a very large part to the BoardGameGeek.

My wife and I try to pull a group together game night once a month but inevitably we end up short on time after dinner and all the young children and babies are not willing to sleep in unfamiliar surroundings. There's almost a meta-game going on that involves proper timing, feeding and entertainment to placate the children and provide us a couple hours in the next room. Time will certain rectify this as well as provide new young gamers to our group but for now I am left to read rules, reviews and comments online about games I wish I could play.

[Edit] All my boys are old enough to play games! My oldest can play anything well; my youngest can't quite read yet but is willing to play. Life is good as long as we can squeeze a game in from time to time.
