about me
I'm a mild-mannered guy who just moved back his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. I spent many years out east in cramped Brooklyn rentals where nomadic apartment-dwelling taught me the habit of culling the game collection.

I'm been playing games since my older brother got Dungeons & Dragons for Christmas in the early 1980's. Then we tried the the Tom Wham minigames in Dragon Magazine, which opened the inevitable Pandora's Box. Soon we had moved on to TSR minigames, Warhammer 40K, Axis and Allies, and dozens of others.

By college I was playing Magic: The Gathering, Star Fleet Battles, Vampire CCG, and Blood Bowl, all of which were very time-intensive but perfect for the amount free time I had then.

Just as my gaming interest was waning around 2002, I was told about Settlers of Catan and discovered a plethora of similar titles. I quickly discovered there were too many games to choose from! A brief internet search lead me to BoardGameGeek to help inform my purchases. I have been an active member of this communtiy ever since.

Dr Glaze et al
When I first made a user account here my moniker was "Thee Insidius Doktor Glaze & His Sidekick Donut Boy with the Amazing Monkeytime Dancers! Ooh!". The origin of the name is that I loved donuts and my co-workers had made up an alter ego in which I was also some kind of evil mad scientist. I seriously never thought the site would persist this long and turn out this great, or I would've invented a name more clever and succinct.

I love BGG!
The tidal wave of great games from so many publishers has made BGG more important than ever. I feel that our community is unique: we have a superb website that remains all about the fans connecting with fellow enthusiasts. Unlike video games or other hobbies, the BGG site hasn't been co-opted by corporate marketing. I enthuiastically welcome publishers and designers and their unique, valuable input, yet I hope that this community will continue to be foremost a home to the players themselves!

I'm a harsh reviewer
I make no apologies that I'm very critical when rating games. We are lucky to live in a time when every year there are so many great titles that we can't even try them all out. We do a service to the community by celebrating the good designs and panning the bad ones. How does the hobby benefit by praising mediocrity?

favorite games
I love a variety of games and I try to seek the very best each genre has to offer. I'm a huge fan of strategy games [Taj Mahal, Acquire, Dune]. Other favorites are CCG's [Netrunner] and wargames brief enough to be finished in one sitting [A House Divided, Hammer of the Scots, Hannibal, Friedrich]. I tend to favor games with long-term strategy, in-game decisions that need to be weighed, and hidden information... anything where you do more than just find the optimal move on your turn!
