I love gaming. Both trying new games and pulling out old favorites. I'll try anything twice. I have a circle of friends interested in gaming, but I'm always looking for additional gamers, so if you're from the Lancaster, PA area and would like to play a game sometime, send me a geekmail.
Growing up I played the typical Risk, Monopoly, Stratego, Life, Hotels, etc. These games became boring and I gravitated to video game systems, such as NES and Super Nintendo. Then I discovered Quake & Warcraft II for the computer and I went down the computer gaming route for a while (Starcraft rocked!). I enjoyed the personal interaction of gaming, so I gravitated more towards LAN gaming
Someone introduced me to a table-top game that had huge figures and it was so cool moving the figures around. I don't remember the name of it, but I remembered how much fun it was, so when a friend introduced me to Warhammer Fantasy, I jumped in whole-heartedly. I exited a few years later as I spent more time assembling and painting than I did playing.
Just before entering the Warhammer universe, I discovered that a few members of my paintball group got together weekly to play Samurai Swords and the occasional games of A&A and Fortress America. Saturday night would be spent gaming, church Sunday morning followed by paintball. I took a break from board games for a few years when I became hooked on Halo on the original Xbox. I still loved social gaming and would organize Halo LAN parties before XBox Live was launched. Having 16 players in the house on 4 XBox's in two different rooms was awesome (sort of like paintball for when the weather was terrible).
Now I'm back into boardgaming and love it. I love checking out BBG and the Dice Tower for news and reviews and plotting my next purchase. If you're from the Lancaster County area, I'd love to hear from you and play some games.
