I've played board games all my life, but rediscovered them as a hobby in 2003. I now collect them as I can, and have started two weekly game groups: one Sunday afternoons (The Worthy Gamers; ) and another 'more serious' group that meets most Tuesday evenings (The Once & Future Gamers - our exploits are chronicled here
I consider myself an omni-gamer - I'll try almost anything once. I am at heart a Eurogamer, in love with elegant mechanics and excellent artwork. My love of history should
make me a wargamer, however I find most wargames inaccessible in the amount of time I'm willing to spend to learn them. However, I do love Twilight Struggle
and have recently (Fall '14) fallen for the GMT COIN Series
title Cuba Libre
. I also love the immersive experience I find in Eldritch Horror
and A Study in Emerald
. I'm not averse to a well-themed cooperative game, although I'm not particularly drawn to them. I like dexterity games, but feel I already have them well covered in my collection. I have an especially soft spot for wooden games. I'm not really interested in CCG/LCG gaming, but to be fair I've never actually tried them.
I married my beautiful wife Eleanor
in 1996, and our daughter Samantha was born the following year. We also have two young adult children from my wife's first marriage.
I am a professional woodworker and an actor.
I'm an avid road cyclist and committed bicycle commuter.
I am a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant®
specializing in personalized wedding ceremonies.
