Attention Secret Soloist!
I've just updated my wishlist, sorry for the delay!
I'm a 38-year-old eCommerce Director living in Dallas. I've lived here for 15 years, having moved here after college in Oklahoma, where I grew up. I have a wonderful wife who doesn't mind my gaming obsession.
I'm a semi-regular gamer with the Dallas Gamers (www.dallasgames.com
). I prefer to attend the monthly Dallas Games Marathon
events, and pack in as many games in one day as possible.
I've been gaming since my uncle got me hooked as a little kid. I grew up with Star Fleet Battles, Battletech and RPGs, and fell in love with Magic early-on, during the Unlimited days. This carried me through college, where I was introduced to The Settlers of Catan and became interested in the early Eurogames.
When I moved to Dallas, I brought Catan with me and taught it to friends, who taught friends, who taught friends. My branch of the Settlers tree splits multiple times, and I like to think I've turned a lot of people onto the world of strategy boardgames.
My favorite games these days are medium & heavy Eurogames. My top games change constantly, but my favorites include Taj Mahal, Agricola and Twilight Struggle. I enjoy lighter games as fillers, but am usually disappointed if I don't get to play something meaty on game nights. Lately, I've been more interested in light wargames, such as Combat Commander and Conflict of Heroes.Games I've Recently Played
