(Hi russ!)

He turns up in lot of the same threads I do, usually saying what I would have said if he hadn't said it first!

So, who's your BGG doppelgänger, and why? (It could be same taste in games, similar avatar, same opinions, whatever)

I think Russ in mine also. He always shows up in the go threads and abstract game threads that interest me.

Maybe Russ is just in all threads, and thus is everybody's doppelgänger?

I still reminisce about the glory days of Russcon. And he recently visited Austin again just after BGG.con ended.

For a while, it was Chapel. We seemed to have a lot of tastes in common and would wind up in the same threads. I even asked him to succeed me as Geek of the Week way back when (and he agreed). That was a while back though and I suspect Mikey has more important things to do these days, since he's spawned.

My current doppelganger? I'm not sure I have one. Maybe Lenny?

So that led me to read the Notes on growing a gaming group, and now I'm even more convinced.

Probably Jim Parkin -- we have some similar taste in PNPs and tend to frequent similar threads. Maybe his is just one of the only avatars I know to look out for, though.

You will always be my homeboy! Even though lately, I've been more interested in 18xx and longer games....I still like the heavy euros so we might still be gamer dopplegamers.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

That would be anyone who knows all the rules to Agricola without looking them up.

Judd Vance and I seem to end up at the same place at the same time with similar thoughts. He tends to express them in a better, clearer way, however.

Luckly (for them) no one that I know of is that cursed on BGG.

I do have a close friend though that knows me better than my wife (that's really not saying much, actually) because we can be so alike in tastes and opinions. My brother on the other hand, who is oddly 15 years older than me, we have the same exact mannerisms...like freaky twin level the same, but 15 years apart, it's really weird.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

Here's a chance for someone to build a tool to compare your collection with that of other members of BGG, and express it as a ratio of similarity, then display the top 20 or so by descending order of match. Maybe also show the bottom 20 as your "anti-doppelgangers".

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.
