I have loved board games for the past 50 years. I am totally happy to play them all the time, especially those produced in the last 20 or so years.
I produced a magazine called Counter with Stuart Dagger and always appreciate comments, calls, enquiries and of course support.
Counter has been going for over 15 years and our 60th issue was published in March 2013. Stuart and I have passed the baton to Greg Schloesser and Ben Baldanza and Counter is thriving under their leadership.
I am a founder member of the International Gamers Awards and still belong to the committee. I now write reviews and articles for Spielbox Magazine and Counter.
Time seems to me to be the biggest drawback to playing games - there are so many to play and not enough time to do so. The social aspect of playing games is really what drives me forward and also brings such joy when a person is introduced to modern gaming.
This is a wonderful hobby and it deserves more attention.
I was geek of the Week a while back,http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/424658/geek-of-the-week-...
I still buy the odd game or two, so you may see me in your gaming store or internet portal.
