We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

Goodness is about what you do. Not who you pray to.

My current avatar is a cartoon version of me!

I've made a few, because having just one is boring and it often pays to have some for "special occasions". If you can think of any more themes, please GM me with your ideas.







My ubergeek badge is the game I'm currently most obsessed with.


My previous avatar was Father Jack Hackett from the British TV show, Father Ted, which I still watch religiously (sorry about the pun).

As you can probably tell from my Avatars, I love purple. I wear a purple item every day and even my house is purple. It's the colour of Jacaranda blossoms.

My wonderful wife and I live in Sydney, Australia.

I used to be a gamer and an RPG'er back in the 80's, but work and family commitments changed all that until I discovered Euros (Carcasonne and Catan) in around 2006, and this rekindled the old passion. Not long after that I discovered BGG and realised how deep and wide the world of boardgames really is - simply wonderful!

Personally, I like games that are interactive, with a strong theme and play in under 90 mins. I particularly enjoy co-ops.

Somehow the obsession to play has also spawned the creative elements in me to develop my own games. So far I have 6 (in various stages of development). I'm enjoying the process immensely and hope to one day have them published.

My uberkeekbadge is the game I'm spending the most effort working on right now.

Recently I discovered microbadge creation. Here are the badges I've created so far:

In 2013 I was proud and humbled to see one of my badges win the coveted mb Microbadge of the Year Award.

The winning badge was - mb - Board Games Keep Me Young. A badge inspired by the fountain of youth.
