I have been gaming for 25 years, most of which was spent playing Magic: the Gathering. As a father, the time that I could dedicate to Magic was insufficient to remain competitive. Board games have provided an opportunity to have a competitive atmosphere that doesn't require as great a time investment. While I have always played board games, they have become a huge part of my life over the last six years.
Some of my favorite games include Twilight Imperium IV, Yedo, Mage Knight, and Xia, Legends of a Drift System.
