Hello Santa and Cthanta! My presents have arrived - see Item for Geeklist "2014 Edition of Look What My Secret Santa Sent Me..."
and Item for Geeklist "Look what Cthanta Claus sent me! RPGGeek Secret Santa 2014"
. Thank you!
Thank you for being my Secret Santa this year. As you have already noticed, this spot is usually blank. I am a bit of a perfectionist, and never happy with what I write here - so, in the end, I always end up with a blank page.
As you might expect from a BGG admin, I am an avid gamer. Lucky for me, many of my friends also enjoy boardgames, so every week, I usually have a couple of opportunities to play a game. Most of the time, I play games with one or two others, but sometimes, a game with more players is possible, especially when I have a chance to visit my games club. Many of my favourite games are eurogames, but there are also several ameritrash games and hybrid games on the list. I occasionally play a wargame, seldom play abstracts and don't really enjoy party games.
In addition to boardgames, I enjoy RPGs. I was an admin on RPGGeek before I expanded my activities to BGG. Currently, I am playing the dwarf Thoraim Khurlode in a D&D 3.5 Savage Tide
campaign. Any remaining spare time I fill with reading (mostly fantasy, some science fiction, detectives and English literature), admin duties on BGG/RPGG, browsing RPGG and BGG. A couple of times per week, I'll watch an episode of a TV series on DVD. I'm currently watching the first season of True Blood
, given to me by a friend.
I've studied (and gained a PhD in) Computer Science, and I currently work at an IT company that makes software for mortgage administrations.
Getting me a present can be a bit of a challenge, as I usually buy the games (and other things) I want straight away. Many of the games I do not have, I don't really want in my collection. My wishlist is up-to-date, though, so anything that is on there is something that will make me happy - with the obvious exception of the items marked "Don't buy this".
