Old Ironsides being overflown by the Blue Angels
mbmbmbmbmb

In the nutshell - Middle-aged, gray-haired, game-playing, beer-loving, ex-Navy, working-at-a-cemetery, computer nerd.

I've been gaming as long as I can remember. Played all the classics growing up, having a good time with them. But around 35 years ago, I was introduced to two games that changed my gaming direction. First, an older cousin of mine introduced me to Strat-O-Matic Baseball. He knew I was a baseball fiend, so it was a natural. We played many a game and soon I had my own copy. I've been playing, on and off, for all these years. Now it's mostly the computer version, but I still enjoy a C&D game every once in a while. The other game was Rise and Decline of the Third Reich. That same cousin bought it because it looked cool, broke it out and was completely over his head (never having played anything like that before). So, he gave me his copy and said have at it. I was also way over my head, but with a lot of patience and careful reading, I figured the game out. At that point, I was hooked. That copy of the game disappeared during my moves while serving in the Navy, but I've replaced it, as well as adding more games than I care to think of.

My gaming now is limited to a smaller group of friends, an occasional Vassal game or soloing. Still having a good time with them.
