As a child in the 50’s and 60’s, I played Squatter enthusiastically, sometimes for days at a time !

In adult life, my first memory of a “serious” Board Game is seeing Diplomacy featured in a “Benson & Hedges” cigarette commercial on TV, with Stuart Wagstaff looking sophisticated, must have been about 1971 or so. At that time, as I recall, there were no specialist games shops in my home town, and I had a big job finding it, and was very excited when it arrived in the mail.

I have always had an interest in political and “grand strategic” games, usually with a historical basis, and I still have my 1970’s copies of Decline and Fall, Kingmaker and later Pax Britannica & United Nations. I have written a short booklet on playing Diplomacy with less than the seven players ( still in print, ask me for a $3.00 copy). I like intuitive games with real world themes & high interactivity between players and so I now like trading games like Parthenon: Rise of the Aegean.

In about 2004, I created a Yahoo site for Board Gaming in Adelaide ( South Australia) : http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/adelaideboardgames/…….

At BGG , I have contributed Geeklists for [GEEKLISTID=16229] and ~ [geeklistid=16619] . Since joining BGG, I have generally found the site very useful. I have to say tho that I do not understand “tags”, and the mail system seems a little clunky. One thing I find really strange is, why have an avatar when your “real” name AS WELL is displayed against every BGG contribution or other action ..?

Now, back to the game …
