I've been a long-time gamer since I was a kid. Early favorites were Crossbows and Catapults, Talisman, Survive, etc.
Years passed and I got out of gaming. However, that all changed when I re-acquired Talisman, Fury of Dracula, Dungeonquest, Caylus, Power Grid, and then the obsession grew anew.
My favorite games are ones with a lot of theme, have difficult decisions, nice bits, and lots of player interactivity, with less randomness.
I've taken some photos here on BGG, made some house rules for games and also made a couple of maps. I guess I'm a geek of all trades.
Some of my custom maps are here:
I'm also a game designer/publisher. Here's my first game:Catacombs
