Secret Santa 2014: I just got home from a business trip and found an Amazon box waiting for me. Thank you so much for Kemet! I've wanted to play it for over a year now.

I have been coordinating a game group in Hays County, Texas. PM me for an invite. We currently get together once or twice a month. Additionally, I have a group who alternates between board games and rpgs. This group is strictly for the over 30 crowd, nostalgic for the golden age of RPGs, before D&D became the tabletop version of Diablo.

My primary game group consists of my 4 oldest kids and myself, with my wife occasionally joining in. It all started when my oldest daughter was 10, and asked to play my old, childhood copy of TSR's Dungeon that was sitting on a shelf in the closet. We had so much fun playing it I started tracking down other board games from my youth, starting with Talisman. Here we are 4 years later. We usually play 2-5 times a week; it's what we do instead of movies or TV. We essentially have 5 game collections; there's mine, and another for each kid, knowing they won't be at home forever. Every birthday, and Christmas has at least game as a present.

We all have our own tastes, but these are my kids favorites: My Kids' Top Rated Games. I prefer games from the 80s, mostly GameMaster, TSR, GW stuff; but I like a lot of new stuff, like Summoner Wars, Cutthroat Caverns and Memoir 44.

I'm a local scoutmaster, and admit we have taken a break from tying knots and starting fires to play a game once and a while. I'm also a Army combat veteran, but I don't care for many war games, as they tend to require too much bookkeeping and down time.

I'm usually looking for out of print games in trade, to relive the glory days. But I have picked up a few foreign games in my travels, mostly to Japan and China, for the sole purpose of trading them. I try to consider any offer, however.


Secret Santa 2011,

Thank you for your generous gifts this year. We are truly enjoying them.
