I started playing games with miniatures when a family friend gave his collection of D&D figures to my brothers and me. We invented a very simple dungeon crawling game using blocks to create our dungeon. Later, we moved on to Hero Quest and began to paint our miniatures. I have continued this hobby and still enjoy various board games, miniatures games, and painting.
I am based in Chicago, where I play various games with a group of friends. We prefer games that do not require a large number of miniatures or attempt to limit the brands of miniatures used. Recently, we have been played Song of Blades and Heores, Full Thurst, Wastelands and Mech Attack. Many of those old miniatures I recieved are still being used.
