So how did I get into gaming?
Well I really can't remember, but we have always played games in our family, but more the traditional games like Rummy
But when I was around 13 I was given Landmandsspil
, which we played over and over, and I still have fond memories of this game. In high school I was introduced to RPGs, first Advanced Dungeons & Dragons
, of which I hardly didn't understand a thing. Then Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks
was published in Danish and I was hooked. I went back to AD&D
and enjoyed it a lot. I went from there to a lot of other RPGs (Call of Cthulhu
, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
and many other) and boardgames.
I've started gaming clubs, and help closing a few aswell, translated Basic Dungeons & Dragons
, working for Fafner Spil
, written and edited articles for gaming magazines. So yes I did actually make a living of gaming for a few years.
But with a growing family I found that I had less time for RPGs and started playing more boardgames. The only RPG that I still keep following is Shadowrun
, I still buy everything they publish, and I was very active on the Dumpshock Forum
. This eventually lead to me being noticed by some of the developers, and I started proofreading new material which I have done for a few years now.
These days the whole family plays games, although I haven't managed to get them hooked on RPGs yet.January 30th 2012: I'm now also a microbadge designer: Secret Santa & Cthanta 2016 info
Dear Secret Santa & Cthanta. Please be aware that if you send games from outside the EU, I will have to pay import tax and VAT on top of what you pay for the game (25% of the entire amount plus a fee of 30$ for handling at the postal service). Unless the games are marked as present, and sent directly from you to me (not from a shop to me).
For more information you can read here Item for Geeklist "Secret Santa Shipping and Duties/ Buying INFO"
My wishlists are up to date, and Cthanta; PDFs are fine, unless I already own the book in that format.
We have an up to date list of boardgame shops for Denmark, Germany, England and Sweden at http://germangames.dk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=2745
, some of these shops even participate in the Secret Santa program. All of these shops are willing to send to Denmark. If you have any problems understanding their webpage, then send them an e-mail and they will gladly help you.
And by the way: I know Denmark is right next to Germany, but that does not mean that I know enough German to actually read a whole rulebook, so I would really prefer English versions of the games on my wishlist, unless the game isn't available in English, in which case German (or whatever language) will do.
