I am a sore looser. I actually have flipped the board once, or banged my fists on the table, so all the components got messed up. But GOSHILOVEGAMES.
I haven’t played all my life. I played my first serious board game in 2014 and can’t stop since. By serious I mean it wasn’t Monopoly, but it also wasn’t Battlestar Galactica.
Ticket to Ride was my first game to play. Then Catan, then Escape from Atlantis… and then we bought Castles of Mad King Ludwig and lost count 🙂
Matt on the other hand is a winner. He barely loses a game. Although he managed to plan his little strategy, when he loses the first couple of times we play, and then suddenly starts winning… and he thinks I won’t get angry 😉
We both like co-op, and semi co-op games, like Mansions of Madness, Dead of Winter or Eldritch Horror. Matt is more of a brutal strategy person, like Blood Rage, Scythe or Evolution. I like fast paced games, like Escape the Curse of the Temple, Dice Forge or Steam Park. I roll, he drafts.
Our collection started growing quite recently, and we only JUST reached 50 games on our shelf.
There is, of course, the Pickle. Our cat, who loves games more than us. And Harry the Hedgehog, who doesn’t like anyone.
