Der Das is a Meeple Muncher, gamer and collector. Prone to modding games and bending rules. Currently trying to materialize some of the ideas floating around in my head. (Read: make room for more.)
Playing games, designing games, etc, ... not that easy when the missus is busy promoting her newly released novel; go check www.gerryvandeweijer.nl
Being a double-time father doesn't help there either, but at least children's games get attention. Oh yes, soon enough there will be two additional gamers in the house. Training underway, huzzah! :-)
Those wondering why I have a Badger avatar should know this: "Das" means "Badger" in Dutch. I do switch avatars over on occasion...
-My badger-meeple avatar was made from a picture here at BGG and it won't be used outside BGG. Original image thumbed and tipped.
-My old waving-badger avatar: The animation was created for me by a -fellow DeviantArt artist. (Please do not use this original artwork!)

They play a variety of games. Children's games for their age range, dexterity games and the occasional simplified variant of more difficult games for adults.
My oldest son is now exploring the ins and outs of go-moku. I can't win anymore in a 4/5-asymetric game. Still, he prefers visually attractive or thematic games.
My youngest son has taken a liking to chess and other abstracts.

I joined the geeky guild of The Ancient and Loyal Order of Thrifters
on the 17th of June 2007. I sneezed a lot since then, but it's a fun place all the same. Incidently, tissues are provided free of charge.
I'm also a member of the Adminions
and Microbadge Focus
guilds. These allow me to give BGG something back for all the enjoyment I get from this community.Check them out... www.boardgamegeek.com/user/Der%20Das/guilds My Tops'n'Hots... Most coveted games (Wishlist)

I don't log all games played, just the ones I know the exact date for. It is usually the light games that are being forgotten. Except for the lightest of all, the very first game with my then 18 months old son. This one I will never forget...
Ok, enough badgering from me, now go play with badgers...Do you know of any other games involving badgers? Please let me know via a message!
