If you clicked on the avatar wondering who it was here is your answer.

Its BARBARA TUCHMAN one of the greatest authors ever in my humble opinion.

Hello and thanks for reading about me.

I am an ex-pat American living in Shizuoka Japan.

Originally from Manhattan I discovered gaming at the age of 11 through my dad, who brought home such titles as Gettysburg, Battle of the Bulge and Third Reich. Good memories there.

I enjoy mostly playing wargames, although you couldn't tell from my collection as I have acquired a number of 'non' wargames which I use to teach English to Japanese students.

Some of my old favorites, which I sadly haven't played in years are; ASL, Russian Campaign and 3rd Reich (although the PC game is decent enough) I am currently enjoying or have enjoyred various rounds of Steel Panthers, Machiavelli and I hope to get a copy of Empire in Arms at some point. Not for the light hearted.

Big NHL hockey fan where I co-run a simulation league with 22 teams and GM's from the EU, Canada, America and of course Japan. If you are at all interested in sim hockey check out the website

and a retro league here

I also play in a few baseball roto leagues, the odd hockey fantasy league as well as enjoying a good non-fiction book, especially the aforementioned Barbara Tuchman.

I am married and have three cats who enjoy terrorizing my games when left setup overnight.

My collection has grown too large of late so I have stopped buying new games for now after the last run on economic games, although I am on a couple of GMT 500 lists.

When I do get around to buying games again I want to pick up a copy of Junta and 1830.

My next goal is to teach myself commodity trading and improve my investing (real life)
