I need more TIME
User no.: 11793
Gaming since childhood (1960's). Stumbled into AH games in 1974. Introduced to Harland Trefoil's Civilization and 1829 in my teens and steadily worked my way through phases of figure gaming, 2-player hex & counter, Fantasy, Role-playing, train games and now boardgaming.
Helped found the Eastern Horde Wargames Group (Ipswich UK) with my brother back in the 70's. Then helped run the Durham Games Society when at University. Became a fan of magazine games after stumbling upon a copy of 3W's Napoleon at Eylau (issue 2 of The Wargamer) while at college (I've got over buying magazine games now though!). Worked and played in Chelmsford UK for many years before emigrating. I find it very hard to part with games, no matter how unlikely I am to play them in the future. I consider it a triumph to have played at least two thirds of the games we have.
Naturalized American, originally a Briton. My top ten are what I have found to be most thrilling over the years; and my hot ten are those games that I am most eager to play next (in no particular order).
