I have been playing games of high quality since I found Axis and Allies at Toys R Us way back in about 1986. I never looked back from then. My main gaming group and I have been playing games and RPG's for about 20 years, a few of us going back further than that. To us, the Unearthed Arcana was the stuff of legends. The RPG era ended for me a while back and I don't see myself playing them again anytime soon.

The RPG's transitioned to CCG's. Magic the Gathering. From the era around Unlimited and Legends. I had it all. Sold it all. L5R up to about the Day of Thunder. Had it all and sold it all. And then Doomtown. That was a spectacular game. Had it all, and still have it all, although there is really no reason to keep it anymore. Then came the miniature war games.

Miniature painting and the game VOR were huge for me for years and years. Miniature games were my bridge to the great boardgames that started me out. I haven't given that a try in quite a long time, but games like Rivet Wars make me wonder if I should try again. Here are about forty images of my stuff painted, as well as some of my terrain: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/images/thing/4977/vor-the-maels...



Games like Descent and Arkham Horror started me off in board games. For the longest time, I thought I preferred the so called Amerigames as opposed to Eurogames, but as time passes the Euro's grow on me. Carcassonne is a game I love. Puerto Rico is awesome. And now Eclipse is the king of games for me. It is a hybrid that mixes the best of both worlds.

I will try just about anything but it tends to always come back to Eclipse.
