Happily gaming for 36 years!



What I'm doing now
OMG, Rivet Wars: Eastern Front is SOOO FUN! The boy and I played for hours on the weekend it arrived! Also enjoying Forbidden Desert to the extent that it has replaced Forbidden Island. However on 1/25:

Krosmaster: Arena arrived...8 games in one weekend and the boy can't stop talking about it. We have everything from the first release as part of the full meal deal set on the expansion kickstarter - so around 40 cute anime guys to admire and play with!

Greg's History of Gaming
Beginnings: As a wee lad, I recall the day back in 1971 when my parents bought my older cousin a copy of Gettysburg. I got to lay out the counters and push them around on the board and stewed on that for 8 years until, on my brother's 11th birthday May 29th, 1979, I found myself in the local big box store staring at a shelf of wargames. I bought myself (yes, I'm selfish and got a present for myself, not him devil ) a copy of The Battle of the Bulge. It was all down hill from there.

Roleplaying takes over my life: My parents, bless their blissfully ignorant hearts suggested that my bro and I take up this "new" game Dungeons & Dragons Basic Game. This was the blue box basic set that we started with...I wonder how they felt about that great idea years later as we're shouting in the basement under their bedroom in the wee hours of the morning

Wargaming: But my first love has always been wargamming. I was pretty much a loner in that regard since my friends preferred to play role-playing games, but in college I discovered gaming clubs - first at the UW Madison and later the UW in Seattle. I play all types of wargames and am not that focused on any one game, though I find these days that I prefer series games where you can learn one set of rules and play many different battles.

Miniatures. I took up miniature gaming along with my roleplaying, but quickly slid into that deep dark chasm that is historical wargamming. The oldest "army" that I have is actually a fleet of WWI ships, both German and British. I also have lots of micro armor stashed away somewhere as well as Flames of War: The World War II Miniatures Game Russians, 8th Army and the odd German company. My most beloved and largest army, however, is a huge 15mm Seven Years War Austrian/allied army of something close to 1000 figures. I love the 18th century men in wigs and lace era with it's carefully marshalled lines and colorful but not too fancy uniforms. However all that historical stuff aside, I'm actively working on Warhammer 40,000 (fifth edition) armies now (as part of my not so secret effort to get the wee lad interested in miniatures). But I have purchased Saga which looks like great fun - I lean toward the Anglo-Danish myself because hey, who doesn't like two handed axes? Active miniatures are almost exclusively Warhammer 40K/Horus Heresy - with the Salamnders Legion, Mechanicum, Necron, and Tyranid armies (and some Assassins, Inquisitors, Genestealer Cult, Death Korps of Krieg, and Imperial Knights too boot!)
