Hi! My name is Anthony, and I live in Orlando, Florida. For as long as I can remember I've liked board games, but I got into the hobby more seriously in 2010 after being introduced to Ticket to Ride and Catan.

Growing up my parents made a tradition of giving each kid a board game for Christmas. They were hit and miss, but some of the hits were Monopoly, Clue, The Game of Life, Risk, Scrabble, Othello, Chess, and Tripoley. Into my teenage years I discovered Munchkin, and continued to play Scrabble and Chess with some regularity but I was far from being a "gamer." Some of my friends played D&D but it wasn't my cuppa. In college I played Texas Hold-Em almost exclusively with some Scrabble and Risk games few and far between. After college I got into classic card games like Pinochle, Euchre, and Cribbage. And more Scrabble (Man, you'd think I'd be pretty good at this point? I'm not.). Then I moved to California and only played the Wii or Apples to Apples. When I moved back to Arizona I still played Wii, but not Apples to Apples. Now I play in Florida, mostly with just a few friends, but maybe you saw me at Dice Tower Con, Hello!

My user name, Elocution Safari, comes from a line from the TV show "The West Wing."

My taste in games is evolving, but it's safe to say I'm more of a Euro guy. I like worker placement, card drafting, role selection, tableau building, action point allowance, and hidden roles. I love a good party game, too! I don't like "take that" mechanisms, player elimination in long games (in fillers it's okay sometimes), or thematic games with a lot of luck and complex rules (i.e. Heavy Ameritrash). Here's what I'm excited about right now:
