Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

Okay, so here is a little gaming history on me.  I started as a traditional pen-and-paper D&D gamer way back in the 80s and I played the classic "Gold Box" games like Pools of Radiance.  But at some point, I grew up, got a job, got married and had kids.  With each transition came less and less time for games.  Now I find that I have no time for lengthy gaming endeavors such as D&D, World of Warcraft, or even Oblivion.

What I have found as a fun replacement are the transitional board games that have become more popular of late.  They take less prep time and can usually be finished in a single night.  Sort of a replacement for the traditional dinner and a movie evening.

I don't play computer games anymore because of the committment to both time and hardware costs.  But I do love my Xbox 360.  And it's good to finally see these transitional board games making the jump to the console.

First up, Settlers of Catan (screenshot below), due up soon on Xbox Live.  I hope this is a success, so we see more games make it to the console.  Personally, I would love to see Magic the Gathering and Descent ported.
