Here's a little bit about me.

Got into gaming a few years ago and steadily a few people came out of the woodwork who also love board games. Little did we know what we were in for.

GAMES
My gaming likes and dislikes are hard to define at times. I rate and comment on everything I play, so that should help. (Just look through my "rated" list in the collection bit over to the right.)

I would say I like thematic games. I do like to play economic or multilayer efficiency engine building games, but sometimes they seem like work, and I won't enjoy them unless I can both understand them AND do well.
Thematic games just provide a lot of fun regardless of whether I'm winning. Perfect examples of these are
1. Cooperative games like Pandemic and Mice & Mystics
2. Merchants and Marauders
3. Risk: Legacy
4. Xwing
5. Roll for the Galaxy.


WHO I GAME WITH
I game with lots of people at different times.

My gaming group meets regularly and we just got Pandemic Legacy which is fantastic.

There's a group I've heard about recently which, when I get there, will let me try some of the games I've been wanting to try out for years like Descent and King of New York.

I game with my wife who likes euros and shorter games. We love Macao, Ticket to Ride, Puerto Rico, Catan, Le Havre, Stone Age.

I game with my kids and my older ones like lots of things, they are 11, 10 and 8. Shorter is better so we can fit it in, and things they've liked a lot are, King of Tokyo, Formula D, Stone Age, Dixit, Escape and Sherrif of Nottingham.


I listen to some common and not so common podcasts.
Dice Tower
Flip the Table

and less regularly
On Board Games
The Secret Cabal
Not Just Another Gaming Podcast (NJAGP)
Plaid Hat Podcast

I love taking part in the BGG and AU/NZ Secret Santas and the "Jack Vasal Memorial Fund" auction when I hear about it.

The community here is great.
I'm good mates with a few geeks on here.

Thanks for reading this far down. If you GM me, I'll give you 1GG just because you went the extra centimetres. (that's not a very good deal really is it?)




Found this nerd test on another Aussie user's page and am proud of my scores.
