Dimes = 3 and Fives = 16Team Geekdo Folding@Home stats:
I am a child of the '60s who grew up in the '70s and '80s, from the Bronx, NY, who has lived many places over the eastern US, and in Asia, but has only really considered NYC home. I played many different types of games, starting with standard US boardgames as a kid, old wargames and RPGs up through high school and college, and modern Euros and Ameritrash since 1998 or so with my (now) wife.
I tend to prefer games with no dice, little or no luck, and have deep strategy. There are major exceptions to that rule. I don't play train games. There are fewer exceptions to that one. I am a bit obsessive, which explains why I am such a pain in the ass sometimes, and why I sleeve, bag, & pimp games excessively.
I am married, and belong to my son, who at this point is just over three years old, and my new infant daughter. I love them all more than words can say, and my wife even likes games, but that also means that between these things and my new job, I don't have a lot of time to play games. This is compounded by the fact that I keep having to move for work (I am an IT Contractor). I mostly get in a few light or quick games now and again, and the occasional solitaire game or longer game at a club meeting, or online or ipad/iPhone versions. Still, my children are the best things that ever happened to me, and my wife is a very close second (or a virtual tie).
Outside of gaming, I am a big time foodie, a formerly active SCA member, a fencer, and a generally good person. I have an overdeveloped sense of honor, and a big mouth that gets me into trouble. I like to drink, but not heavily, and I love to eat to excess, which is reflected in my overdeveloped waistline. I am working on losing weight due to health issues, and the fact that I have young children that might like to have me around for a while.
I have been described as passionate about everything, and deeper than many. I consider myself damaged, but a good bargain. My wife might disagree.Flags since 20 January 2010:(Sorry about this) EXPERIMENT: Flags since 30 December 2010:
