Hi everyone! I am a 36 year old married gamer with two young boys. My wife enjoys joining me for games when time permits. Most of my game plays at the moment are solitaire games are with my 7 and 4 year old, however, which is very promising for our gaming future! I lead my own microbiology research group at a university, which does an excellent job of taking away most of my free gaming time.

I have been playing games since 1995 and spent an inordinate amount of time and money playing collectible games (Star Wars CCG and Heroclix particularly) before I really started playing boardgames heavily at the start of 2008. Thanks to Swiss friends and 6 years in Switzerland, I have been lucky enough to attend Essen Spiel twice (2008 and 2010) and hope to continue to attend every couple of years into the future.

I am fortunate to play games with a variety of different gamers and groups in Brisbane and have a slight preference for card games and medium to heavy weight Euros that take around 2 hrs, apart from Conflict of Heroes (which I am still looking for a committed partner for!). I have enjoyed longer games in the past (particuarly card-driven war games) but struggle to find the time and energy to commit to 4hr+ games at the moment. I also enjoy party games in the right crowd.

If you are interested in games on my trades list, I would prefer to trade "games for games" as I do not enjoy cash negotiations, unless you are prepared to make the first offer.

My Hot 10 = Top 10 most played games for the last three calendar months.
