I'm a big fan of trades so if you see something you're interested in on my "For Trade" list, feel free to send me an offer or a geekmail--even if you don't have anything from my "Want in Trade" list. I'll do my best to respond promptly and hopefully we can work something out!
I was introduced to The Settlers of Catan
in 2010 as a junior in college and received my very own copy of the game later that year for my 21st birthday. From there I progressed to Race for the Galaxy
and I've been hooked ever since, rarely turning down gaming opportunities
As an engineer, I enjoy the problem-solving challenge that many games provide and I love trying new games that require different tactics and strategies. My favorite games are medium to heavy strategy games with minimal amounts of luck/randomness like Agricola and Caverna
and I generally love anything involving worker placement (Keyflower
, etc) but I'll play anything once!
I have an awesome wife who is also a gamer (though not quite as addicted as me!) and board games are a fun hobby we can enjoy together
I've tried designing my own game, but it's proven to be easier said than done... Nonetheless, I constantly find new ideas popping into my head and it's fun letting my brain turn those ideas into awful board games. Maybe some day I'll create something worth sharing with BGG*
Besides board games, I really like spending time outdoors (hiking, fishing, playing various sports) and I particularly enjoy long distance running*My first game design, Kegonsa, is available as a free print-and-play here on BGG!
