Boardgaming for Life

Play to Win. Play to Learn.

Boardgaming – The Gateway to Opportunity

'Thurn and Taxis' (a board game)

Boardgaming. What a unique hobby! There are so many different styles of games out there. Each one presents us with different challenges and unique opportunities. They give us the opportunity to spend time with our friends and family. Boardgaming is also a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

Since you’re reading this, you probably already know about the great variety of board games out on the market. I personally prefer the German based board games and the strategy board game genres. I am drawn to the decisions that are presented in the games. How much to bid? Where to place my pieces? When should I pass? I like developing strategies and trying to respond effectively to what is happening on the board.

More intriguing than the decisions and the mechanics of the games themselves are the people that I play with. I enjoy having the benefit of a large boardgaming group. As a result, I get to play a large variety of games. I also have a sizable pool of gamers to draw from when making sure a game gets to the table.

So, why am I writing this blog?

Boardgaming has had a profound impact on my life. It has given me a wonderful group of people to spend time with. It has changed how I approach various life situations. I plan to keep the focus of the blog on boardgaming, but I also expect to discuss how I’ve applied the lessons learned while at the table to other areas of life. Hence the title, Boardgaming for Life.

I look forward to sharing in our gaming experiences. So, I would love to know – how has playing board games benefited your life?
