When I'm not looking, my games play each other!

If you came to my profile because you saw the Game Designer badge above my avatar:

I designed a game for the 2014 Solitaire Print and Play Contest called Supermarché, and I won!!!. I'm very proud of it, and if you decide to play it, I hope you like it!



My intro into the hobby: In the seventh grade, I had a teacher who held game days. While other students were serving Saturday detention, a handful of friends and I spent all day playing a board game where we built up our nations through the different ages and traded our goods under the table. Fast forward 20 years...a friend brought over a game called San Juan, then one called Small World. I was instantly hooked and in love with a wonderful new hobby.

Solitaire Games: I would say my favorite part of the hobby is solo gaming. I play with a couple of groups, but I still get most excited about solo games. I am very involved in the Solitaire Games on Your Table GeekLists and the 1 Player guild. It's a great community of solitaire gamers. If solo gaming interests you at all, you should check it out.

Trading: I love trading games. I prefer to work out the trade through GeekMail before we submit a trade offer. I will consider all offers, and will respond to all requests. I keep my games in the best possible condition. Keep in mind, that since I like used and traded games, sometimes a game is a little loved. I will always describe my games to the best of my knowledge. On the other hand, I really only care that games are playable and complete. I always look forward to some trading!

A note on my collection: I do not mark expansions as owned. Instead I list them in the comments for the games I do own. I find that makes it easier for me to see my collection at a glance, rather than have my owned-games list be clogged up by a ton of expansions.

A note on trading: All of my games come from a smoke-free home and I will only trade for games that also come from a smoke-free home.

p.s. Thanks to BGG, I learned I was playing Civilization all those years ago. I would love to get my hands on a copy. However, I don't think I can talk anyone into spending their entire Saturday playing this game reliving my junior high memories.


Some of My Gaming Milestones

My 1000th play!!!
It was Ticket to Ride: Switzerland. I played with my wife and sister. I was feeling pretty cocky about winning the game, so I took the final train ticket on my very last turn. It was a route I had not completed and it was worth 14 points. Losing those points cost me the game.
