I've been boardgaming as long as I remember (I remember playing Parker Brothers' Kimbo and 1863 when they were new.) Got serious about it when I saw an article on Avalon Hill's Blitzkrieg in the PARADE Sunday supplement in 1967.
I'm an eclectic gamer, dominated by two-player wargames (mostly ASL, plus many card-driven games) and multiplayer Euros (plus whatever they used to be called - games like Empire Builder, old version Silverton, Merchant of Venus).
Have attended several Advanced Squad Leader tournaments in the midwest (Kansas City, Austin, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Denver). ASL is the game I never get tired of and probably play the most.
Regular attendee at Avaloncon/World Boardgaming Championships. My contributions there include many buttons (5000+ as of July 2013) and many pounds of beef jerky shared with other WBCers.
