This is white space.WE ADOPTED ESMEE GRACE! YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHE'S 3 YEARS OLD NOW! YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Greetings! I'm a board game / card game / video game / sci-fi / physics / mathematics / computers geek. When I'm not playing games, I might be playing hockey, collecting rocks, writing poetry, or entertaining nieces/nephews/friends.
I grew up on various board games and card games, then in high school and university played Rook
nearly exclusively. After getting married to my high school sweetheart Heather
, we discovered Eurogames, which opened up all kinds of new fun. Catan
was our gateway game, and I still love a double-size, custom game of Catan: Cities & Knights
I've lived up and down the West Coast. I've also traveled most of the western United States and enjoyed a few journeys in Europe and Asia.
I'm a member of the GK Rhinos
gaming group. Our gaming group played all our games alphabetically in 2012! Read about the fun at our blog, The Year of 100 Games
page shows the crème de la crème, including the resultant of this visual representation for Ambient House.
Thanks for making the graphic, Daniel Schwartzkopf

in Arches National Park
, Utah, USA.I extend many thanks to my beautiful wife Heather and to Jim & Denise, Dave & Liz, Chad & Shoshanna, Greg & Jennifer, and the Board Game Geek community for introducing me to many great games and for countless hours of fun gaming over the years.
My BGG "Top 10" are games I want to learn more about.
