A gaming geek. A gaming geek that has devolved from consoles and PC gaming to the low-tech world of board games. I've sunk so low that I've actually spent the cash on the treasure chest edition of Settlers, a game that I'll pass down to my son. As you can see below, I'm starting the geekification early:
That's him at 3 days old. That week in the hospital aged me 3 years... What was that saying? The geek shall inherit the Earth?
Anyway, in the last few months, I've taken to cataloging all my games and I've hit over 300. Holy crap. I just love collecting them when I find them and although I haven't played every one, all it takes is something like a friend at a game night to yell "Hell yeah! Uncle Wiggly!" and the box is open on the table in 4 seconds. And this is without inebriation, so that says a lot about me and my friends sometimes.
I'm also a game evangelist. I take every opportunity to try and bring people into the hobby. I love to play games, love to talk about them, love to teach them to new people. When I go to Origins and GenCon, my entire con is working with the Mayfair Games booth and teaching games all day long and love every minute of it. I've met some great people, some of my favorite designers, and learned so much about the industry.
I'm also a computer geek. I build them, work on them, play on them, and am free to offer advice about the same.
