How did you get into gaming?
As a subscriber to GAMES magazine since I was nine, I've always been interested in puzzles and games. I bought my first pack of Magic cards in the Spring of 1995 and was immediately hooked. Three years and hundreds of packs later I was introduced to Settlers of Catan in college. Hooked again, I had finally found a hobby that I could truly immerse myself into!
