As of 12/17/2015 I've been with the geek five whole years. The world of board games and gamers has really opened up to me in my time here. I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled upon such a large culture of like-minded people and I am constantly baffled by the amount of kindness and generosity they have to offer.
I'm certainly a euro gamer at heart. Ive got a competitive side that can get out of hand sometimes, but boardgaming has definitely taught me to be less of a sore loser about it!
Some of my favorite designers include:
Xavier Georges, Vladimir Suchy, Stefan Feld, Mathias Cramer, and Andreas Steding.
All of that being said, I love a good thematic game now and then. Ive been a role-playing game GM for over 15 years and have a soft spot for any fantasy or sci-fi theme.
I am a co-founder and moderator for a weekly game group in Des Moines, IA. We play every Thursday night at Mayhem Comics and every Tuesday at Arkham Games in Ankeny. We are always open to new players, so stop in for a game should you find yourself available!https://www.facebook.com/groups/400988609965511/
