POTENTIAL TRADERS: Please don't offer trades for stuff I don't have listed as "want in trade." We move every couple of years, so we're not interested in adding games to our collection unless we're sure that we really want them. If you don't have any matches but want something enough to offer cash, please send me a Geekmail. Thanks!
My username comes from the cats I had when I created my first online username and didn't want to use my actual name. I still wanted something my friends could remember, so it seemed to make sense to honor my feline sons Julius and Octavian (aka Tavey). I don't have any human children.
In general, I prefer perfect information games unpolluted by luck and
auctions, although of course there are exceptions to this rule. I especially enjoy heavier, longer games, including wargames.
I've been woefully negligent at keeping track of games played, in case anybody's wondering why I have many games rated yet seemingly unplayed (or highly rated games seemingly rarely played). Also, I'd often rather play a game for the first time than play an old favorite; I can't resist the urge to explore.
My husband and I are living in Prague, so if you're going to be in town and would like to set up some gaming please let us know!
