Welcome to my boardgaming blog, and my 1st post

28 10 2012

Welcome to my first blog!
This one will concentrate mainly on my love for, and playing of, boardgames.
I was going to say that I can’t believe how many people think boardgames are purely those seen on the shelves of Toys’R’Us or Tesco, etc. You know, Monopoly, Cluedo, Scrabble, for example.

However, I know that I also held that opinion until a few years ago, when my wife and I first noticed a strange-looking game appearing halfway up the stairs of our local Borders bookshop….

It was still half a year before we took the plunge and bought the game in the blue box (It was still in the same location!). The game was called Carcassonne. There were no dice. There wasn’t a board to move from start to finish upon.

Little did we realise that this little game would lead us to railway clubs, people’s homes, scout huts and even to Essen, Germany!
