Bird of paradise fly in white sky, blues for Allah en'sh'allah; Let's see with our heart, these things our eyes have seen; And know the truth must still lie somewhere in between

How I got started:

So, I was really big into RPG's all through the 80's and 90's. I was starting up a 3.5 AD&D campaign and was at my local shop looking for books. And I saw a very interesting box on the shelf, Runebound. It looked like an RPG but a boardgame also. I got back to work (on my lunch hour), and Googled Runebound. And guess what the 1st entry was? The rest, as they say, is history.

What do I do?

Legal assistance. Lots of PC and phone work. Fun stuff, actually. Happiest I've ever been in a job in my 27 years working.

Game likes and dislikes:

As you can see from my top 100 below, I like mostly lighter to medium weight Euros with the occasional Ameritrash (ohh wait, "Thematic") game thrown in the mix. My favorite mechanics would be, in no particular order: Deduction, Push your luck, Worker placement, and Dice Rolling. If I had to pick a type of game I really don't enjoy, I would have to say a deep economic game (like an 18xx title) or an overly complex wargame.
