How I got into gaming:

When I was about 10 years old, my dad brought my brother and me to our camp for a weekend. My dad’s friend had just given him Battle Cry, and we spent the next few days playing it. I loved all the strategy in Battle Cry, so I started asking for similar games for Christmas and my birthday. Soon I had many games to play with my family as well as teach to my friends. Now I am a gamer!
