I think its safe to say my older brother is a thinker. Hes in college to become a boimedical Engineer, and throughout all my life hes schooled me at ALOT of my games...MY games. Hes an awesome brother and one of the best, kindest people I know, but when it comes to games he's simply a force to be reckoned with, whenever we sit down to a game its a challenge. It's not that he figures out the kinks of a game and how to break it within the first few turns no...hes just...GOOD.

Since he is in college I dont get to see him as much as I would like, and transativly I miss getting my behind whooped in games like Robrally and Mechwarrior. This geeklist is a tribute to all the great times weve had playing games together! Enjoy.

Well this one is the one that comes to mind when I think of being schooled by this man. Trust me folks:

HES NEVER LOST A GAME

and weve played this quite a bit. He always seems to predict what will happen, and usually comes out the front runner a bit early, though there are points he gets stuck and goes around in circles for a while, but hey, thats the game!
btw, that picture isnt us, just thought it'd portray the point very well.

Haha, we have fun with this one, and that picture is actually of the sculpts me and him made. I made the rat, and he made the...well...Sludge Monster. We added our own stats and everything.

Now, dont get me wrong, ive won this one against him before, but its his military! They just HIT-ALL-THE-TIME. Before I know it Im down to 4 health, and my monster is Hollywood bound!

AH! He's on level 9 with his whole getup going: The chainsaw of bloody dismemberment, badass bandanna, and everything else you can think of, he may even have a Rat on a Stick in his pocket somewhere. Well geuss what he Draws!?

Pit Bull...are you serious?

This is his favorite monster to fight. not only because of the picture and its measly level, but because he has won TWO big games this way. Winning by a pit bull. ha.

Granted, weve only played this twice, he knows when to hold em and when to fold em, that is, when to get as much publicity as possible and when to bet on the big one. It may also be because I go for the Cheap Slots...haha, Cheap Slots.

It Is Forbidden! We loved this one, I was to young to recall wether I schooled him or he schooled me, but either way we had lots of fun with this game and our cousins on a rainy day.

I saved this doozy for last because, well...its the most significant. For the several years this game was hot with us we played it alot. If we had any free time it was all "You wanna play some mechs?"

Let me explain this to you briefly:
My brother had alot of figures, but also a core battalion of well about 8 tanks that he dominated with. At times, expecially at tournaments at the local gaming store, he would play with no mechs. TankWarrior? yes...that is what he played. His Shmidt and his Marksman were the most deadly. You knew you were a gonner when you heard that voice:

"Five Clix, Armor Piercing"

It sure was some glorious days. Whats great is my brother never rubbed anything in your face unless it was for the sake of humor on both sides. The big first place prize isnt neccessarily his goal, but to have a blast playing and also it happened, for him, winning. Thanks for reading my first Serious Geeklist you guys, much love to you Drew. Peace.
