Hello everyone! Words cannot express how very honored I am to accept this nomination to be Geek of the Week! I'm a geek of all three areas of this site, and a prolific FTLer.

I'm relatively new to boardgames. The first game I ever played was Fury of Dracula, but what really made me part of the boardgame world was Arkham Horror. My first owned game is Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation (Deluxe Edition), which was my birthday present, and the first game I actually bought was Battlestar Galactica. I was introduced both to RPG and videogaming by my husband, and it was a bit before boardgaming.

d10-5 Some random things about myself (from my profile actually)

Occupation: Linguist (almost PhD)
mbLanguages: Ukrainian / Russian bilingual (with primary Ukrainian), English, German, a bit of French, much into ancient languages due to education (Gothic, Old English, Latin)
mbReligion: Christian (Orthodox)
mbHobbies: boardgames, travelling, RPG, books and movies, linguistics, mythologies, archery
mbAuthors and Books: Tolkien, Tove Jansson, Pratchett, Harry Potter, Simak, "The Mists of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer-Bradley, etc
mbMusic: Schandmaul, In Extremo, Tanzwut, Sonata Arctica, partly Rammstein, Stratovarius, Korpiklaani and the like
mbMovies: Equilibrium, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Brothers Grimm, V for Vendetta, X-Men (all), How to Train Your Dragon and the whole load of other - I'm a super avid cinema-goer
mbActors: Christian Bale, Hugo Weaving, Alan Rickman, Hugh Jackman, Michael Rosenbaum, Eric Allan Kramer, Alan Cumming
mbTV Shows: Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Friends, Big Bang Theory, Lie to me, Torchwood, Heroes, Merlin, Smallville, Grey's Anatomy,
mbUltimate Obsessions: Tolkien, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, elephants, dwarves, dragons, dice

So that's the way the cookie crumbles!

-Nad

I just want to say, God, on behalf of all of us thank you for all of the good things we do in your name, like charity and forgiveness. That’s an idea we would never come up with. That’s for sure. You know that better than anybody.

1) What is your favorite board game? - at the moment - Trollhalla, more generally - Battlestar Galactica I guess.

2) What is your favorite board game mechanic? - hm, I like most mechanics involved in Ameritrash, and I love dice, but when luck is not the only thing in a game.

3) What is your favorite RPG? - currently D&D 4e, yes, blasphemous 4e However, I'm in The One Ring PbF now, so when I get familiar with the system it has all the chances to become number 1 for such a ME geek as I am

4) What is your favorite Race and Class? - Fighter Dwarf

5) What is your favorite video game? - Baldur, Fable, Diablo, Enclave...oh, and Heroes of course!

6) What is your favorite video game console? - hm, so far I only played on PC...

7) What is your favorite video game genre? - fantasy as setting for sure, Role-playing / Action Role-playing, turn based strategy, and hack-and-slash.


Thanks for your questions!

Now some questions for you:

d10-1 What are your favorite Board games, Video games and RPG? - Christ asked me this too, but I think I'll give a different answer just to include more of my favourite board games. So board games: Middle-Earth Quest, Lord of the Rings Trivia Game, Yggdrasil, Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries, Thurn and Taxis; RPG - currently D&D 4e, yes, blasphemous 4e However, I'm in The One Ring PbF now, so when I get familiar with the system it has all the chances to become number 1 for such a ME geek as I am video game - Baldur, Fable, Diablo, Enclave...oh, and Heroes of course!

d10-2 What is your favorite contribution that you have made to the site? - on the fun side - this geeklist probably Hobbit birthday: virtual mathom giveaway! :) on the serious side - I did cards translation for MEQ and Summoner Wars (eng->rus), and translated huuuuuge rulebook and tutorial for Age of Sovereigns (rus->eng).

d10-3 What is your favorite part of the site? - FTL And as I like to chat a lot, I frequent the Tavern and Arcadia. Oh, and the "funny pictures" threads (LOTR, Doctor, Star Wars, Star Trek).

d10-4 Can you share a strange or funny gaming experience with us? - oh, we have so many funny things to quote, the problem is the fun is lost in translation. However, here are two episodes that easily came to mind:

Our local meme in Battlestar Galactica: While explaining the rules of loyalties I usually say "Once a Cylon - always a Cylon". Then once we started a 5-player game, but the player who was the Admiral was a bit drunk and somewhere in the 1/3 of the play felt he could take it no longer and went to sleep. Since the 4-player variant has a sympathizer, we had to change all the loyalties and our Cylon turned human for the second draw. Thus we got the phrase "Once a Cylon - always a Cylon, unless the admiral gets drunk".

Guessing the monk in The Name of the Rose: There were 6 people (2 played for 1 monk), the monk cards were just delivered. Then one of the guys (Artie) wanted to go to the kitchen to make some tea and promptly asked us not to peep into his card. To which his sister said smth like "As if I need to, I know you're Blue Monk!" As the guess was completely ramdom, we all laughed, but Artie decided to check just in case. And whoa - his monk was really blue! After a joke about mind reading we re-delivered the monks, and I just couldn't help going on with it - you're white! - and white he was! The third re-delivery - and my husband guesses Artie is orange! After a bit of cursing on his side we decided not to spoil the game any more and stop guessing, so we got our monks once again and started playing. "He's grey", I thought from the very start, but kept silent, and I actually believed the 4th time would be impossible to guess. And guess which monk he turned out?

Have a great week!



Thanks for your questions!
