I grew up loving boardgames, but found myself away from the hobby for many years. Then, around 1995, some friends introduced me to Acquire (the original Avalon Hill version) and I once again became hooked. However, my introduction to Eurogames did not come until much later. Around 2004, I was introduced to Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne. The rest is history. The addiction began and now continues.
Currently, I am actively involved in the Springfield Area Game Enthusiasts (SAGEs) game group which began in May 2007. If you live in Central Illinois or are visiting the Springfield Area, feel free to drop in and join us anytime. We meet every other Tuesday evening. More information can be found at our group web site: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/BGSprfld/
If you join us, you'll find a great group of friendly gamers who make everyone feel welcome.
