A geeky gamer who works in a gaming shop and organises gaming things include the Auckland (NZ) BattleCry gaming convention.(www.battlecry.co.nz
) My gaming is a third RPGs, a third organising gaming events, and the rest made up of board games and some skirmish tabletop wargames when I get the time.
I like second hand and small games cause of my extreme low budget. I like roleplaying and belong to the Uni club and the Auckland DragonQuest Guild. I have warbands for wargaming Mordheim, Bloodbowl and A Call to Arms. As well as play board games. I like small games which are easy to carry around to gaming meetings. I love dice, all sorts of shapes and sizes. And I like random collections of bits and pieces that can be built into games like meeples, game pieces, interesting dice, dice bags, promo cards, random miniatures etc. I like rummaging in second hand shops to see what part games I can find and then try to find more bits to put them together. I'm a big Firefly/Serenity fan.
My favourite big games include Agricola, Caverna, Feudality, the GaleForce9 Firefly and Carcassonne. Games with lots of bits that can be very different from game to game. Fav small games like Sushi Go, Love Letter, Saboteur and Castellian. I also like the humour of Munchkin and all the SJGames creations. I like to share new games so I demo for several gaming companies.
Hi 2015 Secret Santa. I like smaller packaged games as I don't have a car and have to carry all my games via the bus if I take them somewhere to play or demo. So often I will have to decide either for 1 big game, or a bunch of smaller ones. I would love something new like one of the games on my wishlist, or expansions I can add to my existing games. I also don't mind random collections of bits and pieces too.
Thanks Secret Santa 2015. Wow! Thank you for the mountain of games. They have all been opened and rules read so I'm ready to play as soon as I can get to a gaming event. Just wow! I had a huge grin on my face for most of Christmas day! Caverna has been on my MUST OWN list since it was released. Thank you!
