Congratulations Giles! Here are a few questions.

1 What game would you like to play if the two of us met for a game?

2 Do you still roleplay, and if so what's your favorite RPG?

3 Do you yearn to play some game that your regular game buddies refuse to play?

4 Do you have an old favorite game that you wax about nostalgically, but cannot quite bring yourself to get to the table again, and if so, why?

5 What influences your love of BattleLore?

6 If you had the chance to go back in time and give a young you, who is just about to fall in love with games some advice or perhaps even a stack of games, would you?

Have a great week and enjoy the honor of being Geek of the Week.

Nice pick Eric. thumbsup

CONGRATULATIONS Giles!

Like Leo, I note a dearth of wargames in your collection. An obvious indication of a simple character flaw that could be remedied with proper therapy (my rates are competitive).

RPG World: Commercial or Original.
Back in the day (pre-Dragonlance, pre-Harn, pre-MERP), your world was what you made it. Nothing much in the way of fleshed out worlds, pre-generated cities, and such. Until Supplement II: Blackmoor arrived, we were on our own. I created a fairly detailed world to run in, but it wasn't a patch on something like Hârn which arrived many years later.
How much original material appears (appeared) in your RPG gaming environment?
How much RPGaming do you do these days? (Maybe that should have been the first question )

Have a Great week!

I am truly surpeised that you have not been honouored here as GotW yet!

So yeah for you! One of the League of Outstanding Geeks for sure!

Question.

The baby is fussing. You reach under the pram to get the baby bag which should have the bottle in it. But instead you find the bag has been used to transport a game recently. What game is it? And how will you use it to soothe the crying bub?

Congratulations Giles!

I sneakily geekbuddied you because your game comments are so comprehensive with good updates throughout the life of your adventures with the game. Analysis of prospective purchases has never been so easy.


Ha! Thanks! I like writing comments about how I feel - I think it adds to the database here - I certainly enjoy reading other peoples' game comments - they are a real source of good opinion a lot of the time. I hope mine are useful!

I also enjoyed the above tales about snakes - ah that takes me back.
Look out, there's a drop bear above you!

Cheers

Hehehe - yes, snakes are fun to look at from a distance, I'm not a huge fan up close and in the wild!
