All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules, and chance... (Iain Banks)

Dear ANZAC Secret Santa -

Dear SANZACTA - I completely understand about Key Market.
It is a limited edition: I believe there are legal reasons
why it will never be reprinted. Hence the crazy prices -
collectors and a few avid fans. The solution may be to make
a copy from scratch. Meanwhile there's no harm in hoping:
You gotta have a dream,
if you don't have a dream,
How you gonna have a dream come true?

But for Rudolph's sake I will be thrilled by the alternative.
Thank you - happy landings.

Dear SANZACTA - thank you for your message.
All is well, but if your Elf needs any assistance
please encourage him or her to contact me.
Merry Christmas and a smooth, fair-weather flight.

I hope you have a good nights work, with clean chimneys and plentiful cheery offerings from all the good boys and girls. I know you have a long way to go, but please pause to enjoy

My wishlist is very long, and full of games I want to play (rather than wanting to own). There are also a lot of games listed there that I don't want.

In other words, my wishlist isn't much help to you.

So here is a list of games that I really do wish for. Some of them might be hard to find, but others should be available with little trouble. If it helps to save postage, I am happy to go to Milsims, Clasic Comics, Spieldeluxe, Good Games in Blackburn, Joe Dodgy Games or Gatekeeper Games. Finally, Julian Clark is a great source for games, and I expect to see him at the ens of November: his online store is at

The list!

An Alternative to Games?!

Santa, I know it can be difficult to find items for someone with a big collection. If none of these games is easy to obtain, there are three graphic novels I would like to own. These are a perfectly good alternative, and if all else fails they are on Amazon:

Blake & Mortimore: The Secret of the Swordfish

Amazon links:
Part 1: Ruthless Pursuit
Part 2: Mortimer's Escape
Part 3: SX1 Counterattacks

With best wishes,


G'day to you!

My name is Rob, I live in Melbourne, Australia, with my partner Erin and several pets. I have always been a gamer; happily for me my parents and grandparents played cards and boardgames. Best of all, Erin is a keen gamer too - that's how we met.

In addition to board and card games, I am an enthusiastic RPG player and writer. My other interests are detective fiction, photography, military history, cookery, bonsai and craft.
