I woke up in Escher's World today...
Here's a bit about me and my gaming interests and background...

I've always enjoyed boardgames - as a child on family holidays, some of my favourite days were the rainy ones where we had to stay in and play games!

Then over the last 20 years or so I have been building up a games collection of mostly Euro-style games at the rate of a few games a year. This means my games collection spans several decades, and some of the games I enjoy most are old favourites. Unfortunately I have more games than I have time to play them, because of family and other commitments. But given the choice, I'd still rather be playing games as a leisure pursuit than almost anything else.

Apart from occasional get-togethers or holidays with friends (when I'll try to cram in as many games as possible) I mainly play games with my family - my wife and two sons.

If I can, I'll always play the black pieces in any game. Unless someone who knows this deliberately picks them before me to annoy me. (They know who they are...)

As a teenager I got into RPGs - mainly Dungeons and Dragons - but hadn't played any RPGs since, until participating in the newbie play-by-forum inititative in 2014. That got me back into RPGs, and I've since dived into several other PBF games and started running my own as a GM. In March 2015 I was the 267th RPG Geek of the Week
