A gamer from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, England.
I've played board games all my life but only really got into the hobby in 2013.
What changed? Well we (as in my friends) enjoyed playing card games such as Newmarket and Poker and we played a lot of Magic the Gathering and other CCG's such as Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, Buffy etc etc
We picked up the odd game like Munchkin, Fluxx, Doom the Boardgame, Frag, Zombies!!! etc etc and we thought they were OK.
In 2011 my friend bought Arkham Horror and I bought Penny Arcade: Gamers vs Evil. We played them A LOT so I started to look for other games on BGG and I got caught up in the hobby.
Now, I don't want a HUGE collection but I do want a collection of games that I enjoy playing over and over. This collection is now (pretty much) complete and from now on it'll be one in one out.
I'm a gaming media junkie too. I've culled the list of podcasts I listen to but I still keep up to date with around 5 podcasts and 4 video channels.
I run a blog at Jesta ThaRogue where I review games I own (in the order I got them) and I give a quick rundown of games I play for the first time at organised gaming events. I now have a Podcast at the same address that has a weekly 15ish minute episode every Tuesday.
So that's me. Feel free to say Hi and comment on my blog!
