Hi, I’m Dave. I’m a game-aholic.
When I was younger I played a lot of games. It’s what we did when there was nothing on TV and it was too messy to go outside. Card games, board games, you name it. One of my memories of visiting my grandparents was playing “Seven Up” with pennies on the big dining room table.
When I got older I discovered Dungeons and Dragons. Wow, what a rush that was. I still have binders and boxes full of my world-building results.
Then life happened. I got a job, moved away from my college buddies, and games took a back seat for a while.
A few years ago I encountered Wil Wheaton’s YouTube channel called Table Top. On that channel he pulls out some of his celebrity (or semi-celebrity) friends and plays games. It’s actually a lot of of fun to watch, and I found out about a lot of new board games and even new board game styles.
Because of that channel my interest in gaming was rekindled, my board game library has expanded, my fun quotient has increased, and we even have monthly “Game Lunch” days at work. Stay tuned. If I can stop playing games long enough, I might even post a bit about the experience.
