Why do you want to listen to my advice on games? That must be what you asked yourself when you stumbled upon this site. Well, first off, I want to emphasize that I am not an expert. I don't have a large board game collection, and I don't expect it to grow very quickly. I don't work in the industry, either, so I don't have any inside information.
What you will get from reading my blog is the opinion of a middle-aged wife and mom who enjoys playing card and board games. I am also a person on a budget, so you will get a lot of info on free card game rules that you can find on the internet and games that you can make yourself with a printer and some card stock. I may even cover some options for trying out online versions of board games before you buy them.
What style of games do I like to play? My group of friends is filled with beginners. They want to have quick fun and they don't want to learn a lot of rules. This means you won't find me reporting on any marathon wargaming sessions. We play what board game aficionados call "beer and pretzel" games.
Who do I play games with? Since the adults only get together every other month or so, my children are my main gaming partners and test subjects. This means that you will read a lot about how games work with kids.
Hopefully, I can provide you with a different perspective than other gaming blogs. More importantly, I hope I encourage you to turn off the TV and engage your family and friends in a game or two!
