My Newest Games


--------------------
(Personal info typed up for my 2013 Secret Santa)
I've been playing strategy games for about 6 years after being introduced to Puerto Rico, Power Grid and El Grande by a coworker. I had only ever played Magic the Gathering and I think Zombies! and 1 game of Settlers before that. I hit the hobby running buying Ticket to Ride as my first game and quickly added Stone Age, Vikings, and a few others to my collection. We initially played in a tightly knit group with 2-3 other guys but they were gradually taken by wives and other hobbies so I branched out to play at the local stores and still play with the people I've met over 4 years later.

Among the 3-4 area stores, there is a gaming night every Monday through Thursday but I only get a chance to play on Tuesdays and the occasional Monday. We usually have anywhere from 7 to 15 people but break into groups as the majority of us prefer a smaller euro game. I usually invite people over every few weekends, but we're going through a minor house remodel and haven't been able to do that in a while. Having the multiple stores and large group of players, I have a good opportunity to play almost anything I would want, even if I didn't buy it myself.

I don't actively maintain a MtG collection anymore, but have replaced that vice by playing Netrunner since it was reincarnated at GenCon2012. I even volunteered to run the league at my main FLGS. I had played the original but was too young to appreciate how good it was.

That's my gaming in a nutshell. But when I'm not gaming, I like to play sand volleyball.
