Surely nobody can find me so very interesting as to read this, right? If I'm wrong about that, drop me a line and let me know.
Been playing boardgames since I was a wee lad getting his ass kicked by implacable and ruthless family members. No gimmes at Risk with dad. No gimmes at Scrabble with grandma. One long relentless beat-down throughout my childhood, the Sparta of boardgaming.
I play pretty much everything except sports-themed games, hex-and-chit wargames (any more; who has time or space?), and CCGs (any more). Love thinking about games. Love poking at designs. Every gamer has a game design lurking inside just like every reader has a novel lurking inside. Maybe it'll come out someday! Probably not.
The vast majority of my game talk happens at Google+. Feel free to circle me (https://www.google.com/+PaulBeakley
) and TELL ME WHY YOU CIRCLED ME. I mostly post either to the Board Games community (https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/11122997794557924017...
) or to my private "game stuff" circle.
