Hi. I'm Felix: Husband, Father, Anthropologist, Gamer.
Once, I had the great honor of being RPG GEEK OF THE WEEK! I was Geek of the Week
I was selected by
Anything over 50 is T-shirt weather!
as my successor.
After those frumious days, for a while I have been submitting each RPG GotW to the Dice Challenge of Doom, a challenge never so far overcome. Then I stopped, because I got distracted (boo, hiss!). Some statistic will follow at some point.
Basically, I am to similar degrees a boardgamer and a roleplayer, but have gotten involved in RPGGeek much more recently than BGG. I do not post much, but keep abreast of current events, occasionally chip in, and will try to always be running and/or playing a Play-by-Forum game or three.
And then I became Video Game of the Week #160!
That was awesome too. And it made me admit that OF COURSE am I a Videogamegeek as well. Everybody plays videogames. Lana Del Rey, out of my head now, young lady!
Currently playing: DCC, SWE, ...
Currently running: Monster of the Week
Next up: more
Monster of the Week, Remnants, Sagas of the Icelanders, Dungeon World… I will be participating in the "Run 5 New Games challenge", so, things will happen in 2015.
Currently running at home: nothin'
I am tracking my PbF games here on the site: My RPGGeek Play-By-Forum Games
This is mostly for the purpose of clearing my quick bar of no longer current items, but it will eventually present an interesting historical record, I am sure.
To sign up for a game of MotW that might start eventually, please visit my Monster of the Week Waiting List
Due to my close ties to Lookout Games
(oh: add "Brother" to the list above), I have been involved in the development and translation of a number of boardgames.
I am fortunate in still being able to integrate gaming into my private and professional schedules, and hope that this arrangement will work for many years. My son is still tiny, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't grow up a gamer as well. When we have game night, he actually likes to stay up and very quietly watch the grown-ups play. Awesome. Recently, when my friends arrived for game night, he brought out his "Obstgarten" and demanded we play it before his bedtime. Of course, we obliged. (#soproud) Update, now he demands we play Karnickel
- a true child of Lookout Games. Next year, Caverna!Secret Santa, Secret Cthanta 2014:
I am skipping you guys this year, with regret, but I do not need any more games. And I will be donating games anyway since we are likely moving to a smaller place. Konstanz, here I come!
