It says: Love thy gamer
I have nothing smart to say... yet
I'm 50 years old, married and a father of two boys (ages 23 & 18).
(A picture of them, I took few years ago, is part of my badge. A larger version could be found here:

I love board games. I'm playing games ever since I was a child.
I discovered the world of 'modern' games at 2005, and since then realy got into it.
I did a massive purchase to make up for all those lost years and came up to a nice collection.
I orgenize a games night once a month and attend similar meetings, with the same group, two more times a month. Apart from that I play games with my family and especially with my beloved wife. I play a game almost every day. I think that a day passing by without playing a game is a wasted one.

I run a blog in Hebrew about games called 'Gaming is a serious matter'.
I write about those monthly meetings, gaming session with my family and other thoughts I have about the subject.

You can learn from my microbadges that I am a theater fan, and not just by watching. I'm an amateur actor, participating in a drama workshop for several years and taking part in productions of the Rehovot Theater group.

I'm very proud about this microbadge I designed:
representing my main moto in gaming:
"When playing a game, the goal is to win, but it is the goal that is important, not the winning" - Reiner Knizia

More of my favorite Quotes about Gaming (and life...):

"We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing." - George Bernard Shaw (some say it was said by Benjamin Franklin)

"You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation." - Plato

"Any time spent playing games is time well spent!" - David Jones (Broomfield Gamers group)

"Families that play together, stay together." - TheBoardGameFamily(

"Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her: but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game." - Voltaire

"I like your game but we have to change the rules.” - Anonymous.

"Do you know what my favorite part of the game is? The opportunity to play" - Mike Singletary

"You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else" - Albert Einstein

"If you're going to play the game properly, you'd better know every rule" - Barbara Jordan (US attorney)
