I played lots of Stratego, Mah Jong and Monopoly with my family... sitting around my parents' dining table with their (randomly Dutch) Monopoly set, drawing from the "Algemeen Fonds" (community chest) and hoping not to "Ga direct naar gevangenis"!
I love Agricola, Tzolk'in, Dominion and more, but Magic: the Gathering is my favourite because it's thousands of games in one. Each time I build a new deck it's like getting an entire new board game. (From that point of view it's not so expensive...)
More playtesting is always good, right? The group has a lot of useful experience and it's always good to playtest with people outside my normal gaming circle.
I'm Alex! I'm a big fan of board games and Magic: the Gathering, and express my creative urges through many aspects of these hobbies such as designing my own board games, or proving Magic to be Turing complete :)
