My Dad started taking my sister and I to gaming conventions when I was around 10, but in the beginning I was a D&D nerd. I dragged my friends along with me so that I would have other kids to play with. Interestingly, it was my sister that my parents encouraged to play board games, but over the years I realized that RPGs weren't really my thing. I saw my long time group go one way, when I went the other. I married a guy who had never played a euro-game before in his life, but loved playing generic games with his family, and I had a lot of fun introducing him to the wider world of board games, then we had kids and started cultivating the geek in them too. Now our big family vacation of the year is KublaCon! So no, no I am not new to board games :)
