I suppose I really ought to say a few words here for the benefit of the handful of geeks who may or may not want to know something about that opinionated bozo who posts on the Agricola boards, among others. Preferably as few as possible, to lower the boredom factor.

My first exposure to Avalon Hill and the wonderful world of wargaming took place back in the early 60s when I noticed that my dad had a few AH games in his den (that, as far as I know, he'd bought, messed with a bit, and never played). Beyond that, as a kid about to enter junior high, my gaming experience was the usual Monopoly, Parcheesi, Careers, Life, and so on. That all changed when we moved to the Philippines, where I met and became fast friends with a number of like-minded gaming-oriented young teens. I became a hardcore wargamer for the next 10-15 years, especially after the family was transferred back Stateside, where I finished high school and went on to college.

Although the wargaming eventually took a back seat to real life (you know, working a job, having kids, silly stuff like that), I've never lost my love of gaming. Within the past few years, my current crew and I discovered the world of Eurogames and multi-player interactive solitaire (that's a joke, son, that's a joke!) and have spent many a gaming session delving into the likes of Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Puerto Rico, Caylus, and most recently and notably, Agricola. We're hooked, for now.

And that's about it. I've got a family and friends that tolerate my geekiness, spare time to game to my heart's content, and the good fortune of finding an appropriate website to hang around on and share what little knowledge I possess about the games I enjoy.
