Yes, this is a tad out of date. I will update it one day in a year starting with the number 2.vegemite twisties aussie Australia gallipoli
in Melbourne Australia. I have enjoyed playing games since I was a small child. I probably started off with things like Ludo, Chess and Monopoly. Moved into various other games like Squatter
, Stock Market Game
and Escape from Colditz
. My first wargame was The Battle of Britain
at about 10 or 11. I started playing Dungeons and Dragons in the very early days and still play it and other RPGs (especially Call of Cthulhu) now. I bought my copy of Diplomacy
around the same time. A lot of SPI wargames and a few AH games over the next seven or eight years, never got into Squad Leader
much though. Civilization
a few years later. Got into German games fairly early on, i.e. probably started playing Catan
when it was still brand new, i.e. only the German edition was available. My wife Melissa
is also a gamer (yes you can
be that lucky!). Most of our gaming used to be done with role-playing friends but we have met some new non RPG gamers via local gaming contacts and through BGG.gallipoli timtams beer vegimite twisties

Co-founder with REGGY
a board games club that meets on
the 2nd and 4th
of the month
in Melbourne, Australia. Also co-founder with Melissa
of KiddieCon a small board games event run periodically at our Daughter the Younger's creche so gamers with small children can spend an occasional weekend day playing games.
Neither of the children go to creche anymore so KiddieCon is no longer running. Also I no longer work in the building where we started Gamers@Dockers
so it has been a long time since I showed up there.
