Game History: During my childhood I played lots of traditional games (Sorry, Racko, Monopoly, Risk, etc) and many of the party games before they were boardgames (Balderdash, Pictionary, Outburst!). Many years ago I discovered Empire Builder. This was my first "strategy" game. I didn't know games like this existed. Shortly after, I discovered Catan at a Church retreat. I soon bought Settlers, C&K and the 5-6 player expansions. Then I discovered BBG.com. Well, a whole new world opened up and I jumped right in. In 2005 I started a monthly gaming group at my Church. We have been meeting at least once a month since then. I also play board games regularly with family members (Primarily my daughter).

Another gaming outlet for me is Camas Con . Camas Con is a Christian board gamers convention that happens twice a year at Camas Meadows Bible Camp... which is located in the near-by beautiful Cascade Mountains. Basically its 3 days of learning/teaching new games; eating great food; hanging out with other gamers; and hearing some awesome chapel talks. For 6 months, twice a year, I find myself looking forward to this weekend.

Game preferences: I began, liking the Euro-games best (T&E, Tikal, AoE3), but am liking more and more a good Ameri-trash game (War of the Ring (first edition), Fire & Axe: A Viking Saga, Chaos in the Old World, or Runewars). I also enjoy co-op games: I play both Defenders of the Realm and Lord of the Rings a lot. I play solo games quite regulary... often in the evening when the others are watching a movie or busy with their hobbies. My favorate solo games are: Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Drizzt Board Game and Mage Knight Board Game. I like my games with lots of theme, chrome, randomness & pretty bits laugh. My top game EVAR is Twilight Imperium (Third Edition)thumbsup thumbsup

Personal stuff: Both my parents grew up in The Netherlands and we retain close ties with family there. I was born & bred in B.C.,Canada but now live in Renton, WA, USA. All of my immediate family is still in B.C. and we visit often. I love my wife & daughter, mountain biking, hockey, brewing home-made wine, reading, hiking and (of course) board games. Above all, I am loved by God. I try to be more about helping others (especially teens) than about making my own life comfortable. And the older I get (50ish) the more I find out how much others (anyone) can teach me.

Top Ten = Games I rate the highest.
Hot Ten = Games I've played the most in 2015
