Greetings from the west coast of Canada and welcome to my BGG page. Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to drop me a GeekMail if you ever want to say 'hello'. If you need help with something on BGG or anything game-related, just let me know -- I'm happy to help.

Board Games
Although I am an omnivorous gamer, Eurogames are my favourite style and Diplomacy is my favourite game. I love too many games to list them here, but I can say that designers such as Kramer, Tresham, Rosenberg, Sackson, Schmiel, Knizia, and many others produce wonderful games. By the way, I collect Diplomacy and 'operate' the International Diplomacy Repository. If you've got copies of Diplomacy that you want to get rid of, let me know.

Board Gaming
For me, gaming is a social exercise: I want to enjoy the game-time spent with my friends and fellow gamers. And although I like to improve my score and/or game-play whenever possible, I would never do this at the expense of everyone's enjoyment of the game. This is anathema to my whole concept of gaming. If you're ever in my neck-of-the-woods, drop by -- we'd love to game with you.

I will happily respond to all trade requests. I have a mailing address in America as well as in Canada, so please don't hesitate. If you would like to contact me about a trade, please send me a GeekMail (first) before sending me a formal trade request -- thank you. My 'Wishlist' is not exhaustive, but it is a good representation of the games I am looking for. Similarly, my 'For Trade' list is not exhaustive either -- in theory, any of the games I own are 'trade-able' for the right offer.

Math Trades
Ooooo, I love math trading! I have participated in quite a few now, but, due to high shipping costs, I have taken on the responsibility of running no-ship math trades here in the Metro Vancouver area. If you're interested in participating, we'd love to have you -- drop me a line!

Logging Game Plays
I do log most of my game plays, but not all -- and certainly none prior to late-2009. Additionally, I only log 'in person' game plays -- not ones on Brettspielwelt or on my iPhone. So if you see me commenting on or rating a game without any 'Your Plays' next to it, this does not necessarily mean that I know nothing about it.

Rating Games
I have no problem with the BGG recommended rating system, but I do not use it. I am not sure exactly how my system of 1 to 10 works, but it inherently makes sense to me. By the way, I have no hesitation in rating a game after one play, if I am so moved. If I play the game more, I may modify the rating, but I have played enough games in my time to know what I like (or not).

I am a Catholic, an aesthete, a husband, a father, a gourmand, a bibliophile, a football (soccer) fanatic, a philatelist, an oenophile, and a board game lover. I also really enjoy the company of other people. Thrifting games is my preferred method of acquisition. Of all the games I own, I have paid full retail price on about a dozen. The rest have been either thrifted (or as a result of trading thrifted items) or given to me as gifts.
