In a Garza David a baby! Don't you just love spell check?
War Monger! She called me this because I play war games! Snicker.
Advanced Squad Leader and the Gamers Standard Combat Series are my preferred war games but I will play just about anything once.

OCS is on the books for 2015

Thunder Alley is the new hotness!!!

I started gaming non-traditional gaming in 1984 in Arvada Colorado with a neighborhood kid who was into Star Fleet Battles.

Moved to Springfield full time in 1985 where another neighborhood kid had tons of Avalon Hill titles such as Squad Leader, Magic Realm, Statis Pro Baseball and so on. We are still great friends to this day and still get together and game every so often.

These are the games that made me a gamer for life, especially war games. I played Squad Leader for years before finally taking the plunge and buying Beyond Valor and the ASL rule book, from there there was no looking back (even though I suck at it).

If you are in the Springfield area and looking for a game be sure to stop by Meta Games Unlimited on Thursday nights at 7pm. The games are usually Euro or something Fantasy related but this is also where I have met several fellow wargamers.

Top Ten are my all time favorites.
Hot Ten is something I played recently and want to play more, now.
Also be sure to look up 417 Gamers on facebook for other game events, there is usually something going a couple times a week.

Here is a fun tool to roughly estimate your game collection based on bgg prices.

My current Avatar is my personal Cpl. card from the upcoming game Airborne Commander by Stratamax games.

Other Avatars I have used over the years:
