Hello everybody! My name's Andy Howell. I'm the dad to there crazy, busy, hilarious boys and a little girl, (Thomas, seven and a half. John, five and a half, and Eleanor, two) and the trophy husband to a hot oncology nurse named Caroline. We've also got an incredibly spoiled basset hound that pretty much runs the house.




I'm also a US Coast Guard pilot, currently working in Headquarters as a strategic analyst. Before that I flew various CG planes, including the Challenger 604 and Gulfstream GV, and the now-retired HU-25 Falcon - three awesome jets. I've been in the military for, jeeze, 18 years now. I was an enlisted guy, a Boatswain's Mate, and drove boats and ships for a few years before heading to flight school. I flew the Falcon around the Caribbean for six years before moving to the executive transport aircraft. I'm a huge aerosexual. If you're aviation-curious, check out my gallery for tons of airplane pron.

My old ride, the HU-25 Falcon, on deck in St. Thomas.

I grew up playing lots of games. I went to boarding school, and we'd regularly play Risk, Diplomacy, BattleTech, Axis & Allies, and lots of different RPGs. Sometimes we'd even have huge Dino Wars battles out in the hallway.

My oldest boy Thomas is already playing RattleSnake and Monkey Madness, and I'm excited to play all kinds of things with these two as they grow up.

I enjoy just about every game I ever get to play, including but not limited to: Nexus Ops, Wings of War: Famous Aces, Memoir '44, Catan, Bohnanza, Carcassonne, and the mega-mother, Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition. Wings of War, especially with the miniatures, has been a huge hit with our pilots and aircrews. Lots of laughs. We also like to get together every so often for party games like Apples to Apples, and Taboo

My Reviews
Frag Out! Our abbreviated review of the original box. - My buddy and I play each Memoir '44 scenario from both sides of the map.
Drugs are bad kids, but Cosmic Wimpout isn’t. A Review. - Dude, there's like no better pocket dice game, so quit harshin' me.

A Few of My Session Reports:
Space Is Burning! - An Eight Player Twilight Imperium III bloodbath!Teaching Lost Cities to Your Mama - Even though she wears combat boots.

And a couple of Geeklists:
Gaming in Gitmo
The Fellowship Torn Asunder

I'm also a hack guitar player and a huge comic book fan. If you're a fallen-away comic book reader, there truly has never been a better time to get back into it! The books that are being put out by both major and small publishers are better than ever. Check 'em out! If you want to learn more, I'm an occasional "guest" on the hilarious Ed Katsche's Monarch Comics Briefing podcast.
