I met Kevin through Tanga. When Mayday minisleeves were on sale, I posted on the item that I was looking to do a group buy in Los Angeles. Kevin responded and ended up buying the sleeves. Because I ran a game day in Long Beach, I invited Kevin to come down and meet me. This began our friendship.

Kevin was not a frequent poster on BGG, but I knew from my geekbuddy list that he was logging on daily (as frequently as me). It's sad to see his last log on is June 25, the day he passed away. This is the one geeklist he created. His last posts on BGG were to my thread on the strategicon math trade, trying to persuade me to go to the event.

Kevin was a member of local game groups, including OC Gamers, West Arroyo gamers, and a frequent attendee and volunteer for Strategicon, LA's game conventions. I chose Duck Duck Bruce as the item here because he owned this game (to play with his nieces) and he frequented the Duck Club events for OC gamers.

Kevin's favorite designer was Knizia. While he played the heavy stuff, he was a big fan of simple designs and of quick, elegant filler. Recently at the LA gaming convention, Orccon 2010, he hosted five hours of filler gaming, including Double or Nothing, High Society, and For Sale. I too am a big fan of filler, and wish I could have played some more games with him.

Kevin was also a fan of poker style games. Many times we placed orders together to share or reach no shipping thresholds. The last order we placed together was to buy some import games from a BGG user. He picked up Grosse Fische, Kleine Fische, Relikt, Sleuth and the above Mr. Kongo. When we got Mr. Kongo we found it had no English instructions, and there was no translation on BGG. We wracked our brains trying to get a translation for the game, hoping to find someone who spoke Italian, French or German to translate it for us, including me posting and offering geekgold for a translation. Alas, this game will never be played.

While Long Beach was a long drive from where he lived (around Fullerton), he could sometimes make it down for our gaming days. Twice he came to our home to play six-player games of Age of Empires III.

I introduced this game to him at the 2009 Gameway game convention. He played a three player game and won on his first play, despite our warnings on how merciless game play was. He obviously liked it and this may have been the last game he acquired on June 19.

I never played this game, but I know he was a big fan of Thunderstone. He won the Thunderstone tournament at the Orccon. I know he would've eagerly anticipated the expansions.

Kevin is the one with the metal bottle in this picture.

Kevin was a gentleman and perfectly patient. He was never upset when he lost or the game went against him or boastful when he won, this is why he was so popular a gaming partner.

The last time I saw him was on June 5 at a game day in Pasadena. I was playing four player games and did not have the chance to play with him, though we chatted about his experiences at the Orccon.

He got sucked into a game of Order of the Stick. Though he was a fan of shorter, lighter Euro games, he was too polite to turn down a game when asked. I heard this game lasted over three hours.

This game was one of Kevin's recent purchases, and we played it at Jennifer's about 6 weeks ago. Like most of Corné van Moorsel's designs, it plays much deeper than it looks. Although my team won the championship 3 out of 5 seasons, Kevin's team finished with a strong final season, and he picked up enough bonuses along the way to seal the victory.

I enjoyed the game and would like to play it again. Actually, what I really want is to play it again with Kevin. . .

Played this one with Kevin, John, and Jennifer two Saturdays ago. Simple rules with deep implications, and rather unforgiving of early mistakes.

Unfortunately, Kevin made the early mistake, and the game system kept grinding him down. However, he didn't complain, and gamely tried to catch up. We called the game early even though Kevin said he was willing to play on.

Played this with Kevin, Johner, and Edie two Sundays ago. And it looks like this was the last game I'll get to play with Kevin. . .

Our paths crossed often enough in local gaming circles, and while we didn't play A LOT of games together, we did play several. I know that Dominion and its expansions were high on his list of favorites, but I'll let those who played those games with him often add them to this list.

My condolences go out to his family and loved ones. Kevin was a good guy to talk to, and a good gamer to game with.

I think it was a little over a year ago that I joined the local RPGA. Kevin DM'd one of the first games I played. Radiant Vessel of Thesk. Kevin was just deadpan hilarious. I still remember laughing with strangers at that table in that scrubby little game store, which permanently got me over the nervousness of RPGs with strangers. I kinda have him to thank for a year of games and like 20 friends.

The game I chose here is a little tragic. At this last Strategicon, Kevin bought the inside cover of the program for an ad for his firm. I caught up to him at his flea market table and asked him for an autograph on it. He'd only agree if I bought something off his table. Don't even know what this game is, but now it is the Kevin Game.

I post this not to promote the podcast but because I met Kevin when I was introduced to him as a fan of the show sometime last year. He was a bit shy about it but that is just part of his amazing charm. We became friends and he gamed here with us at Boardgame Babylon a few times. I'm honored that he had the podcast among his badges.

He was a prince of a guy, a solid competitor in games and a great volunteer GM at Strategicon. Anyone who has ever met him can tell you about how nice he is but I can also tell you he'd beat you like a drum in Dominion!

I'm devastated that he's gone as there are few people I'd rather have at a game table with me. My heart goes out to his family during this tragic time and I hope they can take some solace in the fact that Kevin was so incredibly loved by the SoCal board game community.

After playing BSG with Kevin, I didn't see or hear from him again until he sent me a GeekMail after I outbid him on a Geeklist auction. (I think the game was Colosseum.) He reminded me he was "the Asian guy" that I played BSG with at Gamex and thanked me for the Borders coupon tip for buying BSG. He noticed I bid on Shadows over Camelot in the same Geeklist auction, so he mentioned he was selling his copy. I ended up buying his copy of the game.

He said he thought Shadows over Camelot was pretty fun, but liked BSG more as you can do more as a revealed Cylon vs. an exposed traitor, and especially because he was a fan of the BSG TV show.

Before the Gamex convention, I was suffering from a pretty bad case of hypertension. I posted something about it on Facebook and got a message from Kevin saying that he had a voucher for an hour massage that he would be able to pass along. It was really a great relief and made a big difference in the weeks before the convention. He was the most pleasurable volunteer to work with, easy going and really giving.

We could use a lot more folks like Kevin in the world. Thanks for everything, Mr. Pimentel.

I often saw Kevin out in the flea market and had a few good conversations with him over the last year or so. I bought this game from him there for my wife, who couldn't make this past show.

He'll be missed by all of us at Strategicon that knew him, that's for sure.
