Howdy all. Thanks to Jason I have a chance to blog about my gaming but I thought I’d introduce myself. My name is Allen and I live in Robinson, IL and I started gaming in the 70’s with D&D, SPI, and Avalon Hill wargames. I left gaming for years when I went to college (lack of money mostly) and only started picking it up again in early 2000’s. I lamented that I did not have a gaming group to play games but then I realized my 4 daughters constituted my very own gaming group. I started with Ticket to Ride and thanks to the now defunct podcast Game On!: With Cody and John, Battlestar Galactica. Not all of my girls love board games like I do but we enjoy playing them. Thanks to a chance noticing of a Nerd Day in Robinson I met Joe and Jason and the Legends crew. I’m now running over to Vincennes whenever I can to play games and enjoying Nerd Day when it comes around. I pondered what my first game post will be and I’ve decided that it will be about my first foray into miniatures wargaming. Thanks for reading.
Welcome aboard, Allen! Looking forward to your chronicle 🙂
Thanks Jason, I hope I can be interesting.
Allen, with your permission, I’d like to cross-post this to the Fort Sackville blog on BGG.
