Crazy awesome hands

Thought it might be fun to talk about some of the best hands I’ve ever had while playing games over the years. These are all pretty rare so they were a lot of fun to catch and fun to remember later too.

When I was a kid…

My sister made a recent comment about playing games as a kid and that got me thinking about the big group games we used to play as an extended family. My family, my Mom’s brother and his family, and my grandparents were all pretty tight-knit and spent a lot of time together, getting together for all the birthdays, major holidays, or just a weekend dinner. Most of the time games started shortly after dinner and the dishes were done.

We tended to have games on a rotation: we’d get into a game, play it for a while (“a while” might be years…), eventually get onto some other game and play it for a while, bring back another one, and so on.

Welcome!

Howdy. I’m Dan and I’m apparently on games. Not that I’m sitting on a giant stack of them right now or anything. I don’t generally do that, sit on games, but I do play them a lot. And games is what this little blog is going to be about. And when I say “games” I mean games. Any kind of games: board games, dice games, video games, sports, pool, darts, Magic, and anything else I can get my hands on. This isn’t going to be about reviews and having fun with specific games (see the other blog I’m a part of http://gamechasers.net for that! /shameless plug), it’s going to be more about gaming in general; general strategies for playing games, my insights and experiences, just a general discussion of the topic. I’ve got a lot of ideas to share and I think it will be fun. Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading, and comments are always appreciated!
