I am always trying hard to use my slow thinking brain...
Hi Santa I have just received my gifts - thanks ever so much I am really looking forward to getting them to the table!

I am an English-born, Kiwi-bred gamer, now based out of Australia. For more about myself, check www.guymullarkey.com

I love my strategy games, and am a particular fan of historical games, particularly the old Avalon Hill bookcase collection games where I began my substantive gaming career.

Early AH highlights would be Merchant of Venus, History of the World and Blackbeard to name a few

To be fair, my first ever true strategy game was High Finance, followed by the Avalon Hill Collection and a myriad of contemporary titles following this. My Uncle Hamish must be credited with starting my obsession with all things related to board games - thanks Hamish

And to my best mate James "Big Guy" King thanks must also go out, as our 20+ year friendship has firmly locked in my love of gaming and James' patience to play so many games with me for so many years was another key reason why I have been a gamer for so long

I now enjoy a variety of games, my favorites currently are listed in my top 10. My hot 10 are the games I would currently like to get my hands on

I am also happy to say that my wife of nine years Nicole is now a budding gamer, who particularly enjoys Jaipur, Ubongo Duel, Lost Cities, Aton, Mr Jack and Triumvirate, to name but a few. I certainly never thought I would be lucky enough to marry a woman who would play 'nerd games' with me

And now I am slowly but surely indoctrinating my two children Mackenzie (daughter, 7) and Frazer (son, 4) to the joys of cardboard crack!
