“Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence, and enjoy it to the full
Leon Trotsky, February 27th, 1940
I'm the last of the Red-Hot Radicals, a younger and more avant-garde version of Jack Radey. Yes, I'm old enough to remember a "Kinder, Gentler, America." It was called the Carter Presidency!
Been gaming since the early '70's as a lad. I've done some design and development work in the hobby, but will always consider myself a player. I play for fun, and am not that competitive. Which is good, because like most designer types I stink at playing! My Top 10 list to your right are my favorite games of all time, listed in alphabetical order. My Hot 10 List are the ones I've played alot of lately (also in alphabetical order) that COULD break into my Top Ten at some point. I love surfing BoardgameGeek; it is easily the best gaming hub on the net. Yes, yes, I know about Consimworld but ya know; I'd rather not pay to be insulted. Here it is free!
My user name is a take on Col. Alexi Andreyavich Sarayev, who commanded the 10th NKVD division during the Battle of Stalingrad. This epic struggle is my favorite wargaming topic.
