If I added you as a "Geekbuddy": you're probably someone whose posts I respect after reading a few of them, and I'd like to keep tabs on what else you have to say on BGG.

About me:

I was brought up on a steady diet of the typical - what would you call them? - "kids' standards": Monopoly, Game of Life, Clue, etc. At fourteen I laid eyes on Axis & Allies, spent my hard-earned allowance on it, and never looked back.

I try to play my games casually. I've attended the occasional convention but I get put off by players who harp on the rules or otherwise take it too seriously. Let's just have some fun, keep it light, or what's the point?

I've dabbled in the past with making my own role-playing games, and I've designed a South American map for the Empire Builder railroad series for the enjoyment of my friends and I. Nothing marketable, but it's given me an appreciation for good game mechanics. I generally prefer playing almost all games as designed, but sometimes mess around with variants (e.g. A&A Europe, Shogun/Samurai Swords, Fortress America).

I've experimented with role playing numerous times, and produced my own system with several adventures at one point, but it's not generally my cup of tea.

With age I began enjoying having the extra money to expand my games collection, but it remains relatively small. I fell into the collectible card game "trap" a couple of times and, as much as I do love the ones I've collected, I don't think I'll be falling for that again. I hope.
