Turn Your Girlfriend Into a Gamer with Aaron Bostian

Aaron Bostian shares the story on how he introduced tabletop gaming to his wife and how she became a gamer. His experiences can be helpful to those of us who wish that our significant other (boys and girls alike) could participate in a hobby that we love.

Do you have a success story to share? If so, don’t be shy. We’d love to hear about your experiences introducing this hobby to the special person in your life.
