Got started with the 3M Bookshelf games back in high school in the late sixties. A subscription to Games and Puzzles Magazine (British) in the 70s caused me to get ahold of some now obscure British games of the period. I had over 100 board games by the time I got a job at Mattel Electronics, programming for the Intellivision in 1981, where I worked on Space Spartans (my former avatar) and B-17 Bomber (another former avatar). I also did a port of Utopia to the Aquarius computer and was almost done with Masters of the Universe for Colecovision when we got shut down.
Kids cut into my budget for adult games, and my acquisition pattern shifted to garage sales for several years, only occaisionally picking up new games. After relocating to be closer to my next job, party games become the main theme, as the people at work who lived near me enjoyed those, as did my wife. But they all started having kids (just as mine were old enough to fend for themselves), and those get-togethers died out somewhat. Game playing was shifted to inside the family, with four-player games with wide appeal ruling the day. But then the kids moved out and we moved again, as I went back into video games/computer games as a profession.
The end of 2005, I found this site and a local game group and started to get back into games. I am sporadic as far as the game group, but we have found one or two other couples to play with fairly often.
