Blogging Board Games

I've had an interest in board games for as long as I can remember. Perhaps my enthusiasm comes from the fact that I was a lot younger than my siblings, and they would never let me play with them when I was a child. In fact, until moving to Hawaii, I never found people who shared my passion for games that are heavily strategy oriented.

Last March, I joined the Oahu Board Gamers Meetup Group, and I've been playing regularly since then. Walking into the first meeting, I figured that, being a supposed aficionado, I would be familiar with most of what they played. After all, I liked Axis and Allies, and my wife had bought me Settlers of Catan for Christmas.

Boy, was I wrong! I had never even heard of these games. They had titles like Cosmic Encounter, Puerto Rico, and Power Grid. I swear that, playing at least three games a night, it took me three meetings before I played the same one twice. A whole new world of gaming has been opened up for me.

I thought that it might be interesting to start a blog to share my thoughts on this new world. My posts will most typically consist of game reports where I try to analyze what led me to win or lose, but I will also post reviews and links to other gaming sites. I hope that my humble writing helps improve your knowledge of tactics and strategy.

Game on!
