These are some of the good words about gaming moms that we received in the previous years. (They have been modified slightly for privacy reasons.)  

My wife is an obsessive gaming mom.... Our first child went straight from hospital to the roleplaying game at our local games club as she didn't want her halfling to miss any of the action. Her second labour was spent playing The Dungeon on a totally inadequate hospital table and telling the doctor she wouldn't feel the pain if she could just win the treasure.
 
This is a women who designed her own Scooby Doo roleplaying game so she could teach 6 year olds to pretend to be fantastical cartoon characters with funny speech impediments, then made the adults do the same adventures to great hilarity. There is no game she won't try and enjoy - from Risk to Munchkins to Warhammer Fantasy Battles to Zombies to Magic The Gathering. She has a passion for little guys (halflings) and mischief (rogues) and especially dead things (Vampires Zombies etc).

But the best thing? When I find a game I like, I can buy it, wrap it, and give it to her as a present and win twice before I even play the game.

My good friend Liz made a set of 10 dice for her little girl, as soon as the girl started teething. The set of 10 dice, d4 -d20, are of cloth & stuffing with the numbers drawn onto the surfaces. That's getting a child started early.

My mother is a gamer, and has been for several years. She started playing in one of my original groups, about 6+ years ago for a short time, and then drifted away.... When I started a new group, running modified AD&D 3.5 rule set, she came on board as a permanent member, and has made just about every game for the last 3+ years. This group is composed of older people, and is somewhat more to her liking.

She actually plays in two different games now (the same people but different GMs). In the game I run she plays a 6+ foot tall bald female Fire Elementalist with a broad sword and an attitude. In the other game a buddy of mine runs, she plays a male Thief type character.

It's been really nice to be able to share my passion for gaming with my mother, and that she can enjoy it with me.

My wife is a mother of 3 sons (soon to be 4, after we adopt another boy from China!). She likes certain board games when our families get together. Most notably, she likes Alhambra. She really likes the combination of the “luck of the draw” the tile-game offers, in addition to the strategy of placing the tiles and out-guessing her opponents tile purchases. But knowing she’s an avid gardener, you can always count on her to make the grab for the Gardens tiles, that’s for sure!

TTA, my wife is a gamer mom. We met back in college through mutual friends. Fascinated with the artwork in the Monster Manual, she quickly made a character for my DnD game. Years later, she's not only a gamer, but the best DM I've ever played under!

[Here’s an account from a different year, by the gamer mom mentioned in the above paragraph!]

My husband and I are avid gamers, and gaming is actually a big part of how we ended up married. He was the boyfriend of my college roommate, and at the time I thought he was a bit "weird." I was an avid fantasy reader, but coming from a very strict Christian upbringing, Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: the Gathering, Video Games were all Taboo (with a capital T). My future husband had brought all his gaming books to college, and since his dorm room was the most centrally located on campus, it became the default hangout for our group of friends. One day, he had his Monster Manual (2nd edition) out, and seeing the interesting fantasy artwork on the front, I picked it up... and the rest is kind of history. He started running a game for a few of us, and it wasn't long before my over-active imagination (the bane of all my boring Math and Chemistry classes) began plotting adventures of my own. My first DMing experience was running a small game for him and his roommate. Take one fresh-faced DM, and two very experienced players... add two evil PCs and it's a wonder that the experience didn't drive me from gaming all together. But I survived, and today (10 years later) I end up running 90% of the games for our weekly gaming group.
