A Brief Gaming Bio
As a child in the 70s I was into the standard board games like Monopoly, Life, and Risk, but I really enjoyed playing card games like Euchre, Pinocle, and Canasta with my grandparents. I was given a Basic D&D box around 10, but I didn't get into role-playing games until I met my future gaming group in high school. College and beyond saw a lot more RPGs, including D&D, GURPS, Champions, and some oddballs like Hong Kong Action Theater and (once) Rolemaster aka Chartmaster.

I was fortunate enough to play on a weekly basis with Erick Wujcik, designer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Amber Diceless Role-Playing, and author of a number of Rifts books. Erick has since passed away from pancreatic cancer and I miss him and our games terribly.

The high school group introduced me to the Gamemaster series from Milton Bradley. We had the occasional game of Axis and Allies, Fortress America, and Shogun. My board game fandom started when I was introduced to Settlers of Catan at my FLGS during my Magic addiction.

I worked at a Wizards of the Coast retail store for a few years, until the chain closed and I went back into the computer field. I picked up a lot of gaming knowledge in those days, which led to my semi-obsessive harvesting of game information. I have a 15GB and growing folder full of rules pdfs, component pictures, reference notes, and miscellania about a few hundred games, many of them obscure and probably not worth playing. There are a lot of PnP files in there, especially from Todd Sanders, but I've never printed a single one. My own designs live in there too but nothing I'm willing to share with the Internet just yet.

I don't get to play as often as I like. I still have a monthly Thursday night game with the remaining members of Wujcik's weekly group, and I have most of my old high school friends to play with, but we're usually doing an RPG and not board games.

These days I like to collect and play Risk variants and dudes-on-a-map when I can, but usually it's something new-to-me that a new gaming friend has bought. I try to hit Origins every year, and used to hit GenCon regularly, first with Wujcik's Phage Press and then as a typical con-goer. GenCon's lost something in the last few years, mostly walking space, so I don't know if I'll be going any more. However, in April 2016 I went to GamerNationCon in Texas and boy howdy was that a lot of fun! I hope to do more gaming like that in the future.
