The saga begins

A cheesy opening I know, but seems appropriate in some odd way.  Allow me to introduce myself.  I'm your average gamer I'd say.  I have a fondness for certain genres of games of all kinds and makes.  This blog is here mainly to write about various game mechanics, both past and present. This includes card games, table top games, board games, and of course my usual forte, video games of various genres.  The main goal of talking about the various game mechanics found around the gaming worlds is to hopefully introduce people to some new games, wether it be video or board or other.  hopefully this will also foster discussion about possible new mechanics or how to combine certain older mechanics into new ideas.

So you may ask, how am I qualified to talk about this?  Well, I've been gaming since I was around 2, so that would be 26 years or so.  I've played many different genres of games, from simple card games to complex board games and MMOs.  I've always had a fondness for game mechanics, and have spent hours (and my friends can attest to this) talking about, and coming up with new ideas for games and various implementations of them.  Hopefully by reading this, you'll think differently about some games you've played, or feel interested to try out a game you were on the fence about.
