A conspiracy of one.

Was introduced to Chess, Checkers and Cribbage at a very young age by my Dad. Chess was the only one I really took to. My first "Gamer's games" were the old American Heritage classics, Dogfight, Broadsides and Skirmish. I soon graduated to many of the classic Avalon Hill hex games: Afrika Korps, Blitzkrieg and Alexander were my earliest games; these were soon followed by Panzer Blitz/Leader, Caesar: Epic Battle of Alesia, and Starship Troopers. Also enjoyed the MicroGames and the SPI quadri-games.
Got into RPGs during the Chainmail/Eldritch Wizardry period, and RPGs dominated my gaming experience for many years afterward.
Almost gave up boardgames entirely after a very bad experience with the original Squad Leader, but Shogun (undisputed King of Ameritrash) saved the hobby for me.
Starting in the 80's, dabbled briefly with CCGs (of which L5R is the sole survivor), then in the 90's fell under the evil sway of GW and miniatures games. Ten years ago, first tried Puerto Rico, and have had my interest in boardgames rekindled. At this point, I'm collecting just about every game I deem worthy and have space for.
Avid trader/BGG-haunter--don't be afraid to propose trades outside my listed trade-games, but any I rate an 8 or higher aren't likely to go anytime soon.

Game On!
