The purpose of this geeklist is to create a master list of active Calgary gamers for playing, trading and selling purposes (especially considering the World Gamer Database doesn't currently allow database queries North of 60). Currently, this geeklist is the most appropriate medium for keeping track of local players as it can found by new BGG members through a geeklist search and can be edited as people relocate.

If you'd like to add yourself to the list, simply add a game to the geeklist and provide a brief description of yourself along with any information you deem relevant. I would suggest the following information:

Name:
Age:
Calgary Neighbourhood and Quadrant:
Short Description:
Game Playing Frequency:
Gaming Preferences:

Should your entry require editing at a later date, please send me a geekmail and I'll make the edits myself.

If you haven't already done so, I encourage you to sign up at the Calgary Boardgames Meetup Group (http://boardgames.meetup.com/33/about/). We currently meet on the 2nd Friday of each month at the Tuscany Community Centre.

I live in the NE (Harvest Hills)

I cut my teeth playing AH games back in the '80s and GW miniatures in the early '90s in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and only recently "discovered" Euro games after moving to Calgary in 2000.

I get together and play GURPS Saturday nights (along with occaisional b&p game) and once a week I play in a Mordheim campaign as well.

BGG has been hell on my pocketbook as since I found the site I have purchased 6 or 8 games.

PS: My copy of Wizard Kings just arrived at my desk!

My wife and I both enjoy Eurogames, which allows for great "spur of the moment" gaming oportunities!

We get together at least monthly with others to play various games. I'm slowly trying to convert all our friends to Euro-style games. Then I can burn their copies of Aggravation, Sorry, Scattagories, etc....

Married with 6 kids

Current focus is on games to play with the family (as the three oldest kids are 14, 11, and 8 and able to start thinking somewhat strategically). We're enjoying BattleCry (being somewhat Civil war buffs), Ticket to Ride, a bit of Puerto Rico, once in a while Borderlands, as well as making up games (ye old business card stock playing a big role). I'm eying currently shelved Dune and Acquire as ones to introduce next.

Best effort of the past year: Introducing Settlers of Catan to the regular New Years eve party group - displacing Risk (which I played to death growing up, sometimes in Solitaire mode) as the game to play.

I live in the West of Calgary just off 17 Ave in the Signal Hill area. My favorites are Euro Games in particular the deeper end of the pool. My game list here at BGG is quite thorough. I'm in the same group with Don Smith, Norbert Chan, Jasen Robillard, Gary Baziuk and Jean Jodoin. We also have quite a few others who make the occasional appearance. My attendance is limited to about once a month lately but I have another group which tries to meet once a week on Tuesday or Wednesday nights in the Bridleglen.

I live in NW Calgary in the Thorncliffe area.

I am an engineer in the high tech wireless industry. If the last sentence had many misnomers, let me summarize my resume from 1999-2001 when the high tech sector melted down: 5 jobs, 2 layoffs, 1 rescinded job offer in San Diego after I moved down, and voluntarily left Nortel.

I play boardgames mostly in the winterime on Saturdays (in summer, I play tennis). My favourite game would be Puerto Rico, but I wouldn't want to play it too much, since too much of a good thing can be bad. I always enjoy playing new games to see the new mechanisms.

Hey there, Paul from Edgemont here. Pretty new to the "real game" thing, but found it just in time for Xmas :-) My wife and I don't get to play quite as often as we'd like due to two small rugrats in the house. As such, we're always in search of games that can play two players and up.

Maybe we'll run into each other some time (are there any board game groups in town? I see postings down at the Box, but they seem to be more the D&D type)

Thanks for starting this list!

My name is Curtis Thompson. I am a 25 year old student. I have a BA in English, and am now enrolled at SAIT for radio broadcasting.
I live in the NW near the Banff Trail station.
I don't have a game group right now. It is mostly my girlfriend and I who occasionally rope friends into playing. Have only been into games again since the beginning of 2003.
I have found that I like a wide variety of games. Current favourites include: War of the Ring, Age of Mythology, Puerto Rico, and Alhambra.
Willing to trade but don't really have a large collection.

Euro and wargamer. Play with Jasen, Don, Norbert, etc. Also help run Strategem wargaming club and play with various other friends in city. I prefer games with elements of history and genuine conflict and find the recent crop of hybrids - including Struggle of Empires - encouraging. Looking for someone in area to play Middle Earth: The Wizards with.

Name: Mike Adams
Age: 33
Neighborhood: Rundle (NE)
Occupation: Chemical engineer & software developer
Married with 3 kids

My game playing has picked up significantly since my oldest two kids have grown old enough to make games really enjoyable (of course, my son started playing chess at age 4 because he forced me to teach him, so he is naturally somewhat strategic). So I mostly play games with my wife and kids, sometimes friends when opportunity arises. That means I mostly play games which last an hour or less for the sake of my kids' attention spans.

Current favorites: Samurai, Trias, Carcassonne and Citadels (which we play far too frequently to be healthy, I think).

I'd be happy to trade, but I like all the games I have too much to give any up for now. I'm more than happy to buy used games I'm interested in (see my wishlist) if anyone is getting rid of something and I have some cash on hand.

Always happy to try new games.

Calgary Neighbourhood and Quadrant: Mayland Heights (NE; near 16th Ave & Barlow Trail)

Short Description: Gaming since I was a lad. First non-MB/Parker Brother's wargame was GRUNT (the S&T version). Let's see...other stuff...in chronological order - PhD in Biochemistry...two kids...divorced & remarried.

Game Playing Frequency: Not often enough. A few of us at work are trying to get a regular biweekly Friday night gig going. Mostly, my daily gamefix comes from PBEM of CMAK & CMBB (http://www.battlefront.com/cgi-bin/bbs/ultimatebb.cgi).

Gaming Preferences: Anything from ASL to Vinci...well, almost anything...my roleplaying days ended long ago and my only foray into CCGs was a brief one. I've attended FallCon every year I've been in town (and once or twice when my abode was in Vancouver or Edmonton); I usually try to run an event when I attend.

mbmbmbmbmb
Name: Oliver Harrison

Age: 33

Calgary Neighbourhood and Quadrant: Crescent Heights, NE. I live right off of Edmonton Trail on the hill.

Short Description: I've been gaming since I was about 7. Started with my dad introducing my brother and I to D&D, but that didn't really 'stick', though we liked it enough. He was always into wargames, so we played a lot of Samurai, Shogun, A&A, Risk, Quebec 1759, etc. I hadn't played much in the way of boardgames for years (except for the quasi-regular Risk nights) until about a year ago. My resurrection into board games began with me coming up with an idea for a game over the Christmas holidays. It is being continuously worked on and will shortly be posted to the 'Geek. My friend and I are going to present and hopefully sell it to a publisher at GenCon LA this November (06).

Game Playing Frequency: Not often enough. Maybe once every couple of weeks, but I'd like to play more.

Gaming Preferences: About 4 months ago, I bought TtR, Citadels and Lost Cities and that was it. I was hooked. Since then, I've bought Evo, Tonga Bonga, Kahuna, Odin's Ravens, Carcassonne: H&G, Mag-Blast 2nd Ed, Bang!, Guillotine, Fjords, Oceania, Korsar, Thor, Marracash, and will likely be picking up Around the World in 80 Days soon. I like lighter games, mainly because my fiancee pretty much hates boardgaming altogether, so the only ones she'll actually play have to have *very* short/easy to understand rules. I seem to prefer games that have strong themes, but would like to try pretty much everything.

Age: 28 (born 1979 for when the age gets outdated)
Thornecliffe, NW (Calgary)

Short Description: I have liked playing boardgames all my life and I like designing boardgames as well. I actually buy many games just to see what they are like, so I have some up for trade/sale. Boardgames are starting to get really pricey. I am a sucker for strong theme and fancy-shmancy components. Hopefully this list will result in some trades etc.

Game Playing Frequency: 1-2 times per month?

Gaming Preferences: I like playing euros but I don't mind games with lotsa luck and just silly fun. I don't like games that take longer than 1 hour (mostly because it's hard to get my friends to play the longer games). So I guess it's not that I don't like longer games, but rather, my friends don't like longer games.

I got my start in real board games with Settlers of Cattan and haven't looked back. My all time favourite is Carcassonne, with Cattan a close 2. I also love Axis and Allies
I play whenever I can but I'm not in a steady group
I'd love to find a gaming group who play games like Carcassonne and Cattan, but would really enjoy a few games of Axis and Allies here and there

I love all types of board games except Epics, was never a fan losing a 5 hour game in the first 30 min. I have a regular group of guys that play on saturdays. They are a fickle bunch and sometimes I wish I could just play a game with people that want to have fun. Boardgames are kind of new hobby for me , Ive put together a decent collection over the last 5 years, from managment style euro games to corny adventure fantasy.
I love games with good themes like Dungeon lords and games with high production values like Descent.

I have a post on Kijiji for games I willing to sell or trade. Most of them are new and in great condition, just werent games that caught on with my group.
