Youngest of 5 kids in a gaming family. Grew up loving all the classics ( Monopoly, life, clue, Chess, Cribbage, backgammon, any game really ) got into AD&D in 6th grade and went to my first GenCon in 9th grade. Girls, parties, and life took over and no more RPG's till college, but man we played way to much Risk and Euchre. I feel very blessed to have wound up in Costa Rica and got back into AD&D when a friend gave me a copy of Knights of the dinner Table - I loved it right of the bat and bought more and kept reading about the games the guys who made KOTDT where playing and it kept saying Runebound and Heroscape. I thought I would get HS for the terrain and Runebound cause it was a Dungeon Crawl game. I still have not played Runebound and have no real desire to, but I am sure I will some day, but man was Heroscape the greatest game ever ( No DM )and that was it = no turning back.

Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie - The Game I have waited my whole life for.

So I got way into this and went to local tournaments in Ohio on vacation and then started hosting my own. I fell in love with Heorscapers.com and that was my first on-line group I hang out with and thought it was pretty cool. That lead me to BBG and I was just fricking Blown away - I had no clue about all these amazing games. I read so much and wanted to be a gamer so bad, but it was hard for me to games here. I tried having friends bring them only to lose over $300 of brand new games to a hotel fire in Costa Rica that was started by a crack head. So I bit the bullet and hit the only game store in Costa Rica ( 7 hour drive away - OK I cheated I flew up ) and paid way to much for some great games to start with ( or so I thought ): Carcassonne, Puerto Rico, Power Grid, Illuminati, blue moon city, and Colossal Arena.
This just wetted my thirst for more games and a little over a year later I have around 50 games and feel I am about 1/2 to 1/3 of the way to where I want to be.

I went to GenCon last year for the 2nd time in 27 years and had way way to much fun. It exposed me to a lot more games and a much much bigger gaming world for sure. I also came in 5th for the HS National Championship - so I felt pretty good about that for my first showing.

I now play to much Carc and Catan on-line ( aso-brains, look for Hendal ) because it is just so easy to get a game in there. Heroscape is still my favorite game to play but I have found that Board games are way better for most games groups or friends and will see way more table time all said and done.

I now spend most of my on-line time here at the geek ( I rarely go to Heroscapers these days ) and feel blessed to have found such a great site with some truly amazing people. I am constantly impressed with how smart a lot of you all are and how much game knowledge you have, I learn a l of bizarre stuff hear and feel I am better off for it.

My Hot 10 are games I have but have not played yet.

I usually try and carry some type of game on me, my bike, or my car - just in case.

I would say Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game is the my favorite game to play right now ( besides HS of Course ) and I am very glad of that since it cost me over $120 to get here and took almost 4 months for me to actually get it in my loving hands. I have had a bad game of it with the wrong crowd, but in general this is just a very intense game people seem to love to play.

Game On' ( my tribute to Wayne's World )
update 2014 -- Well over 200 games, Heroscape is still my all time favorite game, fires do not like my games, a friends warehouse with 2/3 of my extremely large collection went up in flames a few year back. I am still going to GC faithfully for the Heroscape Nat. Championships - I am current 4x4 Champion of Heroscape ( which means absolutely nothing - well except to that one fan of mine always asking for a autograph at the wrong time.). Just got my first tablet and am playing way to much Ascension: Deckbuilding Game - look for Hendal, . Stone Age is my go to game online over at boardgamearena.com. I have just entered a new phase of buying games so look for my collection to grow.

I don't like heavy euro's, I like games that are an hour or less usually. I like player confrontation with thinking involved. I love Ninja verses and ninja and pirate verses pirates - fast, fun dice games - beer and pretzel games. My group is usually drinking or partying so I like to have games that are not to heavy around. Deck building is also great, I just played legendary last night for the first time and ordered it and a few other expansions for it - so I am hoping that one see's some game time.

Will travel to game. If your ever going to Costa Rica - hit me up, I have been there for over 20 years now.
