I joined this site to research boardgames for my wife and I to play. I was tired of us sitting next to each other on the couch, as we both stared at computer screens. It was a slow process to ween ourselves off an old habit, but now we have a game/date night. We enjoy a nice dinner, turn on some music and play some games. It's helping us to talk more and I discovered my wife has a competitive side.
I love the social aspects of gaming. I am by nature a social being and we have invited plenty non-gamers over for some fun gaming sessions. I don't play to many heavy games but I am slowly working my way down to the deep end of the pool.
I am a carpenter by trade because I discovered a long time ago, I love to work with my hands. I build, destroy and rebuild again. Lately, I am enjoying the film incentive here in Michigan. I enjoy build sets and props for films.
I also have a blog on here called the Plucky Plank
and My Askew View
which has the same game reports as well as reviews or things that interest me.
