Hello there, avid follower or chance passing-by peruser, my name is Nicholas Chilton and I play board and card games. Sounds like an opening statement you’d give at a Boardgames Anonymous support group.
I grew up playing boardgames like Monopoly, Risk, Escape from Alcatraz, and Dark Tower, and then in the 1990’s I discovered Diplomacy and the need to find larger groups of like minded players. I discovered ‘zines hosting play-by-post games and gaming conventions, I even ran my own ‘zine (The Gentle Art of Making Enemies), and through these I discovered a plethora of games produced in Germany; so began my love obsession with board games which has proved to be incurable. This blog is linked to my Twitter id, so you may find small updates on there I don’t post here!
