There are 10 kinds of people who understand binary: Those who do, and those who don't.
Welcome to the "wiki" of Mabby. Why "Mabby"? My initials are MAB and my favorite arcade video game is "Mappy" mb, so I combined them, sort of.

I've been playing board games all my life and the information available to users on this website is invaluable. Three cheers for the admins & creators!

Did you come to this page to find out about my (edit: OLD)avatar? Thanks to Mark Christopher (markus_kt), I now have a full-lengthed, and full-sized, video of the incident. Scary!!

It turns out that there was a definite injury, but no death. Whew!

I was Geek of the Week- #297 mb(go ahead and click, if you have plenty of spare time to kill!)
I was honored to be the Chit-Chatter of the Day mb back in November 2011 (!!)
I was also Love Spreader of the Week mb August 2nd - 9th, 2015.
In other non-game related news, I now possess the Chit-Chat souls of 63 actual people and two Sock Puppet accounts (Total = 65), as I've listed here.
It could be time to retire: I scored the biggest soul out there-- Scott Alden ("Aldie" to his followers)! Who? Only THE CO-CREATOR OF BGG ITSELF!

And now, here's even more than you ever wanted to know about me.

I love beer- ales, mainly, and Belgian Ales mb, especially- and I collect the bottles of microbrews mb that I've bought & tasted. I'm now up to over three hundred of them.
I also regularly meet with a couple of University buddies to drink (on-tap) microbrews at our favorite pub. Since this particular place has no televisions in it anywhere, we play board games to help pass the time.

It's heaven. There's a proprietary house Belgian ale to start with, then maybe a really nice bitter (often a choice of three different bitters at this place) or a nice seasonal offering plus a fabulous "personal" pizza plus two board games, usually, thrown in somewhere.

The most popular games at the pub are "Fist of Dragonstones" (by far) and either "Tally-Ho!", "Bohnanza", or "Guillotine". Lately, "Ivanhoe" has been a common request.
Some games just don't play well in low light and with lots of pieces to lose, like in the pub, but we manage, despite that.
At home, #1 has always been "Eurorails" and then (usually) whatever new game makes its way into the house:

TOP TEN (according to my personal ranking):


I was born in 1961 in the small town (then) known as Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Except for 3 1/2 years, I've lived in Calgary all of my life. I actually live just east of the city limits now, but work and commute to Calgary daily. Calgary has really grown up with me- we're over 1 million population these days (4th largest city in Canada).

I attended The University of Calgary for a couple of years (1980-82) and then went to SAIT a couple of times before graduating from there with a Certificate in Architectural Technologies.
My most recent plays:

I've loved maps and flags, ever since I was a small boy.
So I've finally gone ahead and added a flag counter.
Welcome, and thanks for visiting!

Too bad that the old tracker pooped out; I had 94 countries on that one:
