I "came into" gaming relatively late...it was MtG in 1994, that first opened my eyes to games beyond the typical American fare. From there, I discovered two other WOTC games, RoboRally and Guillotine. Eventually, after many trips to my FLGS, I started noticing Cheapass Games and Steve Jackson games. While mildly interesting and inexpensive, I wasn't completely satisfied with the gameplay. Before too long, I discovered and got fully immersed in the "Euro/German/designer" game scene, and have been loving every minute of it.

My tastes run towards the medium to "meaty" side of things, but I also enjoy lightweight fillers and *good* party games (in the proper setting, of course). Give me a brain burner, or give me tons of crazy fun. Going halfway on either just isn't enough. What I enjoy most in TGOO are the different ways you need to think in each game...well, that and just playing them with good friends and family.

While I definitely enjoy games, and can really appreciate elegant mechanics and boardgames as "art"...it's the interaction and gameplay experience that make gaming such a wonderful hobby/pasttime, to me. While I do attend at least one or two "gaming cons" per year (including the wonderful BGG.Con!), the vast majority of my gaming takes place either at home or throughout the Oklahoma City area.

My main gaming partners are my wife, kids, and in-laws, although I do play regularly with a group of my old college buddies. Beyond that, I also play with a larger group of OKC-area gamers, in a monthly "open invite" local get-together, the "Super Fantastic Gaming Hour," which I also host from time to time.

Overall, though, I enjoy playing games because it brings people together, provides a nice friendly challenge, encourages creative thinking...and it's just fun, you know?


So, if you're ever in the OKC area, please lemme know. My door's always open.


Oh, and to date, I've only rated games I own. I'll expand beyond that list once I get satisfied with my ratings/comments on my own collection.
