My introduction to board games beyond games such as Monopoly was through a friend who introduced me to war games, Panzer Leader and the like. With our regular role playing friends we moved on to other games such as Civilisation, Cosmic Encounter, Titan, and Nuclear War. Once we started playing Settlers of Catan, my addiction had probably truly begun. After discovering board game geek - it exploded
Living in Adelaide Australia initially made it hard to feed my gaming addiction. We had a couple of role playing stores that stocked some board games but that was about it. Discovering Military Simulations in Melbourne helped feed the addiction. I was then fortunate to start a job involving travel so finding game stores in London only increased the habit. Currently my favourite store is the online Boards & Bits in America. I still envy the Germans though who have such ready and cheap access to so many great games. Now that I have run out of cupboard space at home I have had to curb my addiction however - at least until we move
I am in my thirties now, married, with our first born being a very recent addition to our family. Prior to our son's dramatic arrival my wife and I played a variety of games, which was expanded to involving some of our friends when time was available. Recently we have been using our spare time to catch up on sleep so I hope the gaming can start again now that our son has settled in. Of course I can't wait to start involving him with my addiction. I suppose he’ll be too young for a couple of years yet though
