Did my degree in archaeology and worked as an archaeologist for several years. Spent last year doing post-graduate study in Heritage Management. Occasional work as a TV extra Viking.
Back to archaeology now.

I play various instruments in various bands.

I enjoy all sorts of games- mostly get to play 2 player and solitaire games at the moment. I introduced my family to Carcassonne at Christmas 2009 and since then we play quite a lot of games together whenever I visit them. Last Christmas Archaeology: The Card Game, Citadels and Dixit went down well. My parents have been enjoying playing Caylus Magna Carta recently.



A rough timeline of some games in my life:
Draughts -> Card Games -> Cluedo -> Chess -> Choose Your Own Adventure Books -> TSR Endless Quest Gamebooks -> Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks -> Lone Wolf Gamebooks -> Way of the Tiger Gamebooks -> Warlock of Firetop Mountain Boardgame -> D&D Basic Set -> Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay -(HeroQuest at friend's house)-> Pictionary -> Dungeoneer (Advanced Fighting Fantasy) -> X-Files CCG -> Arcadia CCG --(long gap)--> Carcassonne -> Settlers of Catan -> Dragonheart -> Talisman -> Chainsaw Warrior -> DungeonQuest -> Cosmic Wimpout -> Elder Sign -> Space Hulk: Death Angel -> Condottiere -> Martian Dice -> Archaeology: The Card Game -> Dixit -> Citadels -> TSCHAK! -> Race for the Galaxy -> Cuba -> Caylus Magna Carta -> Onirim -> Saboteur -> Coup ->>>

Video games:
Notable coin-ops from my youth: Kung-Fu Master, Ghosts 'n Goblins, KiKi KaiKai (I couldn't find the name of this one until recently - I loved this game!), Gauntlet, Black Tiger, Shinobi, Golden Axe

Memorable games played on other people's console/C64/Spectrum/Mac etc: Beyond Dark Castle, Rastan, Exolon, Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda

Eventually I bought a second-hand Gameboy and still enjoy playing GBC/GBA/DS games a lot (especially on bus/train journeys!)
Still enjoy playing games on the Gamecube and Wii (mostly virtual console games these days) occasionally. Also, I recently found my discs for Age of Empires and Populous: The Beginning and they're still fun to play!

RPGs:
First experience was GURPS. Lots of gamebooks (Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf, The Way of the Tiger etc). Played Dungeons & Dragons, MERP, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay a bit in school. Really liked Dungeoneer (Advanced Fighting Fantasy). Haven't really played many pen & paper RPGs since the 90s though. Recently played some WHFRP 1st ed, which was great!
