Here the truceless armies yet / Trample, rolled in blood and sweat; / They kill and kill and never die; / And I think that each is I. // None will part us, none undo / The knot that makes one flesh of two, /
badge
Sick with hatred, sick with pain, / Strangling -- When shall we be slain? // When shall I be dead and rid / Of the wrong my father did? / How long, how long, till spade and hearse / Puts to sleep my mother's curse?

I bought my first game, SPI's Tannenberg, in Indianapolis in 1979 at a game store called Boardroom Games, and have been gaming ever since. I'm very lucky to have found friends and game stores (remember those?) that shared and furthered my interest in gaming. I played many hours of Diplomacy, SPI's Frederick the Great (my second game - Boulder Hobbies, 1981!), Yaquinto's Panzer series, Ace of Aces, Ogre/GEV, Illuminati, Star Fleet Battles (Bob's Toy & Hobbies, Boulder, CO - remember them?) and anything else we could find; what times. I saw the fall of SPI, then GDW, then AH, but also the rise of GMT and The Gamers, and the resurgence of good magazine games. Big fan of Monster / Consimworld Expo. CSW and BGG (and Grognard.com) are great sites, indispensable. Great quality games with high production value being published nowadays, great time to be a gamer. But will there be enough new gamers to continue the interest and sales? I hope so; I'll do what I can in the meantime ...
