Chess at primary school I think, I remember beating an older kid (completely by fluke), I've managed to forget several scarring experiences of family Monopoly games at a young age.
If it had to be one: Agricola, but Tigris & Euphrates, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne come close seconds.. and every now and then I yearn for an 8 hour game of Space 2038: Tycoons of the Asteroid Belt (an 18xx railway game, but in space).
Meeting like-minded gamers/designers, sharing opinions, gaining expertise and enjoying the rather good beer that the pub serves..
Stay at home Dad of two, keen gamer, keen cook. Will be developing and self-publishing (until someone snaps up all my great games ;-)) while the sproglings are at school.
It goes from strength to strength.
