I am an avid boardgamer (never would have guessed) and game designer. I have three games out so far, Pocket Dungeon, a print and play distraction, and I am co-designer of Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game, which is something I am incredibly proud of. 2015 saw the release of Vault Wars!
My top ten are
the games I most enjoy getting to the table incredibly not updated. I won't say they are my "Favorites", but I do enjoy every single session of them I can get in. Except for Cosmic. That is completely my favorite game. It is my one.
My hot ten are the games I am most looking forward to purchasing, and think will get a lot of play. Either with my wife, my monthly game day group, or the group I game with in Toledo as often as possible.
My collection is mostly up to date, but I am sure there are tons of mistakes. I'm really bad about making things I've given away, traded, or sold. So it is actually smaller than what is listed.
My wife and I love spreading the board gaming love. We host a monthly game day for friends and family, and have since 2009. We did miss one month when my wife had our youngest son. Our group has grown to well over 100 members and our monthly attendance is always more than 20 people. We usually provide a main dish, and just ask that guests bring snacks, sides, or drinks to share. If you are in the NW Ohio area, geekmail me and you'll get an invite!
I am the proud father of four little geeks, and luckily married to quite possible the best person in the world. My wife is my best friend, and my greatest nemesis in gaming.
I love Secret Santa time on BGG. I enjoy spoiling my targets, and seeing all of the wonderful thoughtful giving and stalking that goes on every year. The best gift I've gotten every year is continued friendship with my targets and Santas.
