I'm an IT security geek working a government job in the DC area, happily married to a wife who enjoys the occasional game, but isn't as much of a gamer as I'd like. I've got a 7 year old who doesn't quite get games, and a 2 year old who probably will.
I got my start gaming at an early age, playing Steve Jackson minigames like Ogre, Car Wars, and Awful Green Things. I've done my time in Magic (Revised -> Ice Age). I'll play pretty much anything, but I rarely have/make time for gaming. As such, I tend toward quicker games, that i can talk my wife into, or can play several in a particular game session. I don't do Vassal or BSW much, though I'll happily while away hours against a computerized AI.
I have no current fave game, though I really enjoy Dungeon Roll
these days. My gaming is currently on a wane, and I'm looking to severely slim down my collection. TRADING WITH ME
I'm generally pretty open to trades, and don't feel restrained to what you see on my want list. I'm mostly an acquisition geek, so I'm open to many, many games in trade. I tend to like shorter games, card games, and dice games, and I'm not too interested in Wargames or miniatures. But heck, it never hurts to make an offer, right?
I'm finding that I like shorter games (less than 1 hour play time) and card games, so if you've got something in those categories, I'll likely be willing to give it a try.GAMING WITH ME
I'm open to any DC area geeks to want to game sometime. I prefer to game at home most times, but that's not to say I can't ever get out of the house. I live right around the corner from Dream Wizards in Rockville, if a neutral area is preferred. Just drop me a geekmail and let's set something up!Top 10/Hot 10
These are hopelessly out of date, and I haven't updated them in a long time...ABOUT MY AVATAR
I'll post the standard response I get to questions about my avatar:
It's from the Girl Genius webcomic (http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php
) They're basically the nameless minions of one of the minor characters, who basically exist to get killed off. for a good example, see this page and the day after it. http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070723
But by all means, if you enjoy my avatar, let me know!
