Santa, thanks for being so generous! I got the package of Lords of Xidit and Dungeon Petz. Now I've got a programmable action and pickup/deliver game in my collection along with a fun expansion with more cute Petz!
Santa - It looks like I'll get my package delivered today. Since I've been a good boy, can I open it already or do I need to wait :-D
Work as an IT Consultant and travel 100% of the time for work Think George Clooney playing Ryan Bingham in "Up in the Air". Work with SAP in work/asset management with integration to schedule and mobile applications. Most of my clients are in the utilities industries.
Interests (outside of board games):
Theater Buff - Musical and traditional stage
World Traveler - 6 continents and 28 countries so far
Huge Foodie - Some people eat food to live. I live to eat food.
Movie Fan - Indies, shorts, film festivals
Old school - Reiner Knizia - I still love all of his auction style games, especially Taj Majal, Ra, and Modern Art
New Age - Vlaada Chvatil - This guy churns out hit after hit. Through the Ages, Mage Knight + expansions , Dungeon Lords, Dungeon Petz, Tash Kalar, Galaxy Trucker, and most importantly, Space Alert (the only co-op game worth playing :-D).
Alternative - David Sirlin - He's a big mover and shaker (albeit slightly controversial). Sirlin has really pushed the envelope in terms of trying to create board/card games that are #1 geared towards tournament play and #2 have so much asymmetry, while maintaining balance.
