Happily playing games for many, many years.

Merric is an Australian player and commentator on Dungeons & Dragons and a bunch of board-games. He's been a consistent contributor to the EN World messageboards for several years now, but is also now a regular contributor to BoardGameGeek, with many a session report and the occasional review.

Merric is the Dungeon Master of three ongoing D&D campaigns - 4th edition, AD&D and Pathfinder - plays in an ongoing D&D 4E game, and plays boardgames two or three more times in the week.

Charles Ryan, one-time brand manager of Dungeons & Dragons at Wizards of the Coast, has said about Merric, "[H]is posts are frighteningly insightful (back when I was in the WotC walls, I often wondered if he had our offices bugged)."

Merric's Top 10 list shows the games he considers his favourites, while his Hot 10 list shows the 10 most recent games he's bought. They're somewhat erratically kept up-to-date.

Merric was Boardgame Geek of the Week for the last week of August, 2008. You can read his GotW thread here.

Merric was RPG Geek of the Week in August 2010. The thread is here.
