The show on solitaire boardgaming.
1-Player podcast
I am the host of the 1-Player podcast. It's a show on solitaire boardgaming. It can be found at http://1PlayerPodcast.com.
1 Player podcast on BGG
1 Player podcast episode list my list of all published episodes

Be sure to visit the 1 Player guild. There is plenty of discussion on solitaire gaming there and you'll find links to the very popular Solitaire Games on Your Table geeklists.

I find I have very little opportunity to play. Mostly because I have young kids and my wife and I often work conflicting schedules. Because of that, I tend to collect more than I play.

Many of my games have come from thrift stores. I've had some really neat finds over time. For the most part, I think I prefer euros with a bit of Ameritrash thrown in and the occasional wargame.

I also like collecting games. Especially if the are part of a series or at least have the same box size. I hate trying to stack odd sized or shaped boxes on a shelf.

Top 10
My Top 10 games are my desert island games, in no particular order. I fully expect to bring along all related expansions I own.

Hot 10
My Hot 10 games are the games I own which I haven't played yet and am most interested in trying. They are presented in no particular order. Hang on, some of these have been partially played, played long long long ago, or have only been played solitaire and deserve a multiplayer try.

BGG alias
My alias is a word I made up a few years ago when I started playing Anarchy Online (MMORPG). I thought long and hard and came up with this by combining two things I like: fractals and cartoons.

Now it's also my domain name though that is not up regularly and not maintained much for lack of time and energy these days.


My old avatars came from various places. The oldest is an image of Shade The Changing Man from Vertigo Comics. I used that for maybe a year when I then switched to Don Quijote by Pablo Picasso. That lingered for many years until I switched over to the 1 Player podcast logo. I eventually tired of black & white after so many years. I couldn't decide on one until I took pictures of my kids dressed up as Spy vs Spy for Halloween. My avatar at that time was a combination of two photographs blended together. I since have been going through various color avatars and will probably continue to change occasionally. Each avatar has a story behind it.
