In 1978 a man named Adi Golad was about to make his parents proud. He was in college and although he was not going to be the lawyer or physician his parents had hoped for, he was at least going to be a mechanical engineer. Well at least that was the plan before he discovered two things he loved. The most important was a Dutch woman named Margareeth and the second was the love of board games. To make a long story short, he ditched his career in mechanical engineering, followed his girlfriend to Holland and began to sell games out of the trunk of his car.
