I have been playing, and enjoying board games for well over 10 years now. My first taste of a proper gamers game was when my mum purchased Ticket to Ride. I have now introduced my husband to this amazing hobby (also through Ticket to Ride initially) and am lucky enough to be able to play board games almost every week!
