CONGRATULATIONS Nadia!

Good job getting the Eye, I think you were right in front of me.
- thanks, it was all due to team work, my elven partner helped me a lot at his own expense.

A Q or 2 for you:

How busy are linguists these days?
Are you a translator or a scholar (or both maybe)? - primarily scholar, and translator when needed.

If Translator:
Written or voice? Which do you like best? - oh, voice for sure, I hate written! It brings bag but still yuk

If Scholar:
What are you studying? Because you want to, or because you are paid to? - I specialize in what is here called Germanistics, and major in the History of English. Academic stuff / university lecturing is not well paid, but I really love old/dead l-ge stuff, and we get huge vacations in summer

And finally:
Why do you think Dwarves are so popular? - they are tough and sturdy and fun to be around. And they kick ass!

Why do you like them? - I guess one of my hobbit great-grans was sure to meddle with them and it got into my Gamgee blood

Enjoy your week in the spotlight! Here's to you...

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

G'day Nadia,

I try to remember to ask each Geek of the Week these gaming related questions, so to start with here's the ever so slightly modified GeekSpeak Hook questions for you:
Favourite game(s) for d10-1 player (optional, many non-wargamers wouldn't have an answer for this)
Favourite game(s) for d10-2 players
Favourite game(s) for d10-3 players
Favourite game(s) for d10-4 players
Favourite game(s) for d10-5 players
Favourite game(s) for d10-6 players
Favourite game(s) for d10-7 or more players (and you may choose a Party Game here although I wouldn't meeple )

Also Word Association Football , I will list a word and you list a game or games that you associate with it. If you like you can expand and tell us if you like it/them or hate it/them and possibly why.

Space ships
Witches
Trains
Transport (may include trains)
Workers (paid or otherwise)
Trading
Building
Pink
Theme
Ships
Money
Purple
Government
Vampires
Infrastructure
Dice
Dinosaurs
Gemstones
Dragons
Beer
Wands

Is there any particular game that you have played recently, new or old, that you would like to recommend to readers of this thread? And optionally, why?

Last but not least, what are the five games that you have played most recently?

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Woohoo!

Congrats Nadia.
