It was an honor to be the GOTW and I wish to thank all users that asked me great questions and congratulated me
I wish to pass the torch to a lady that I had the pleasure of meeting a year ago. She is one of the busiest figures in our community and she is well deserving of this honor, Stephanie Straw:

Quote:

I’m Stephanie, and I’m nobody of consequence. I am a gamer like anyone else here. I played most of the classics when I was younger - my favorite being Mastermind. In 2006, I was introduced to Settlers of Catan for the first time at a convention in St. Louis for a text-based RPG that I had played for years. I loved it but didn’t really get hooked into hobby gaming until 2012 when I found a local Geek Club MeetUp and met a lot of new people that are now some of my very best friends.

I consider myself to be an omnigeek and an omnigamer. I’m into a little bit of everything, really, and many different styles of tabletop gaming appeal to me. I absolutely adore this hobby and would like to help it grow and continue to be a positive and welcoming community of people. Because of this, I dedicate a good bit of my time with things involving the gaming community. I enjoy social media, podcasting, livestreaming, and going to conventions. I consider it a bonus if some of you enjoy the things that I help create, too. The links to my media efforts are in my BGG profile, but you can mostly find me hanging out on Twitter as @InsertStrawHere.

I’m thrilled and honored that Elad chose me to be Geek of the Week, joining a group of many amazing people that have preceded me.


Poll: Two Truths, One Lie
Which one of these facts about Stephanie is a lie!
I’ve never played Carcassonne.
My heart is located on the opposite side of my body that is typical for a human being.

And here are some questions for Stephanie:

1If you could take only one game component to a lonely island, which one will you choose?

2 What is your favorite Video game (or PC) of all times?

3 Best game you played and never owned?

4 Can you name the last book you have read?

I'd bring a d20 and let fate make all my decisions for me.

Legend of Zelda!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't own Alien Frontiers, and I'm really not sure why because I love it.

I'm currently reading When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris.

Congratulations Stephanie!
Have a great week!

My usual question: Have you a favorite wizard? If so, who? If not, why? And which game (if any) is he/she from?

Wow. That's really hard. There are so many good wizards. Corey Woods, aka Fred Savage, aka The Wizard.

Congratulations Stephanie! Enjoy your week thumbsup

Here's my usual questions:
What's the weirdest thing that's happened while you were playing?
What's your favorite comic/manga (if you have one)?
If you could have one superpower what would it be?

Thanks!
