-Wargamer for about 20 years.

-Wargames rock, especially ones that aren't about producing an "historical" result, but are about being good games.

-Then I discovered Euros.  Mostly "meh".

-Then I discovered the Card-Driven Wargames.  Whoa.

-First WTP, then HRC, then FTP, then SOR, then POG, then TS (!), then LAB, then WW and WW.  Hooked on TS, love POG with all my gamer heart, LAB, FTP, and HRC are always a good time.

-Played a ton on Wargameroom and ACTS and IRL.  Totally no-lifed CDWs for a while.

-Sorry wife, kids, and job.  I can't no-life these anymore.

-Ran into theory on BGG play-by-forum TS game.  What, this guy is big into Dominion?

-Okay, I guess I'll try Dominion... a Euro, eh?

-Whoa.  Now I'm no-lifeing Dominion, playing a ton online, rocking out on theory's dominionstrategy blog/forum.

(-Maybe now I should give Euros a chance?)

-Get my family into it, now my parents play more IRL than I ever have.  Crazy.  My mother hated games, didn't even play tic-tac-toe, but she's super addicted to Dominion now.

(-See the launch of twilightstrategy.com, go theory you rock.)

-Sorry wife, kids, and job.  I can't no-life Dominion anymore.

-twilightstrategy.com has forums now?  Whoa.

...

I've played about 50 IRL games of TS, and about 300 online games with wgr and ACTS (mostly wgr).  Also into quite a few other CDWs, as you can see above.  Been scared to get into HIS because of the obvious tendency to no-life instead of live a balanced life.  Time will tell.

Hello forum.

I share your tendency to no-life (never heard the term used that way before, but easier to say than "sink into monomaniacal frenzy").  What's your WGR ID?
