Hi! I'm originally from Ohio, but I've been in Texas since late 2007. I grew up playing with the classic board and card games like Monopoly, Scrabble, Pictionary, Risk, Trivial Pursuit, Uno, Euchre, Hearts, etc. I also played some Magic: The Gathering during undergrad, but didn't get deep into it. I've also played video games since I was little, but in 2007, I started playing MMORPG games like World of Warcraft because I love the interaction and social nature of them. My interest in board games was rekindled in 2008 when a couple of friends introduced me to more modern euro-style and strategic games. Now, I play board games every weekend and sometimes during the week.

As for board games, I am most interested in strategic, interactive games that can include: area control, worker placement, auction/trading/negotiation, cooperation, exploration, and some of the lighter tactical war games. Themes my husband and I like most are sci-fi and fantasy, and we also like some periods of American and European history. Sometimes I'm also in the mood for lighter gateway or filler games, and I'm always up for games that make me laugh though that's more dependent on the company. I'll typically try anything once, whereas my husband is a little pickier; the game has to have a theme of interest to him.

My Top 10 list is my current favorite board games. This is current as of January 2015.

In the fall of 2013, my friends and I started reading more about RPGs, and we purchased a few Pathfinder Roleplaying Gamebooks. Most of us had played either Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (2nd Edition), Dungeons & Dragons (3.5 Edition), or Vampire: The Masquerade while in high school or college, but overall, it had been about 15 years since any of us had played. I wish we could play more consistently. We want to get back into it, but we just haven't been able to because of family or work commitments.
