I keep track of all the gifts I've received from Secret Santas, Santa Grogs, and the Secret Soloist here.

About Me

I got started gaming with Axis & Allies, Conquest of the Empire, and HeroQuest. In college I had a good group of friends that played & enjoyed Risk 2210 A.D., Battle Cry, and History of the World. Now, well, to see what I currently enjoy just check out my ratings. Most of what I play is solitaire in nature due to life, though I'm able to occasionally squeak in a 2 player or multiplayer game.

I'll play just about any game at least once, though I have a low interest in party games and abstracts. My favorite games and most of my long term gaming interests can be found in the Ameritrash & war game families. I have a lesser appreciation for Euros in general, though I have some that I really enjoy.

I rarely game with more than 2 people at once as we live in a very rural area. My main gaming partner is my wife, though with little kids, school commitments, and a demanding job the two of us rarely find time to game consistently anymore. I have moved steadily into solitaire games recently to cope with the lack of multiplayer gaming. I've had a lot of fun with the solitaire games I've managed to play. Most of my money & time regarding new games have gone into acquiring solitaire games for quite a while now. My eldest daughter is strongly interested in games as well, so I hope to develop her into a gamer over the next few years.

I have really enjoyed becoming more active on BGG over the last few years. I started out heavily utilizing reviews and geeklists to explore the options out there. I was a lurker for a couple years I believe. Now I tend to concentrate my efforts on the games I enjoy the most by helping out with rules questions and developing files. I develop game records and score sheets, though some of my file uploads have a player aid purpose as well. On rare occasions when I get a new game from preorder, or find one without much information, I might upload pictures to the database. I also cruise the recommendations forum to spread the good word about games I like. I really value comments on BGG. So I try to keep my personal comments current and valuable both for myself and in case other curious users happen to stop by and want to know what I think about games. I'm not as detailed or as thorough as I want to be yet, but I'm trying to make steady progress to improving my comments.


I've traded a handful of times on BGG and each trade has been successful and enjoyable. Some of my games I'm more willing to trade than others. However, I'll consider any trade and respond as soon as I can. Give me 7 days to respond before the trade expires if possible, as sometimes I travel abruptly for work. If I don't respond to a trade request it's because I'm out of town for longer than 7 days. In short, I'm happy to trade, so if you see something on my tradelist you like then shoot me an offer.

Below you'll find the games I've played in the last 30 days (sans expansions). It mirrors my Hot 10. My Top 10 are my favorite games or those that have had the most influence on me, even if I don't play them often. My Hot 10 are those I've played the most over the last 30 days.

And below, you can see I'm a cool non-nerd. While that's a cool title that any nerd would be happy to own, it's obviously incorrect. The survey is weak and doesn't consider near enough nerdom to be inclusive for all nerdiocity.

And I accidentally deleted my flag counter at the same time. Awesome! It only made me look more traveled than I really am. Here are my new flag counters:
