I currently live in Anaheim Hills.
Places I like to play:
meetup venues such as: http://www.meetup.com/ocboardgames/ http://www.meetup.com/stcrispins/
Orange County game stores
Orange County coffee houses
Orange County Libraries (in some cases)
College Student Unions
With the Internet, I can play 24/7 with the games I like. However, the socializing is lacking. So, I now restrict my limited playing time to public, social gatherings.
For the games I am interested in playing, please see the "Want To Play" catagory.
A. I enjoy Eurogames. I generally play these at the meetup venues and conventions. I usually don't make special arrangements for these. I simply drop in and play whoever is there.
B. Special, oddball games. I make special arrangements for oddball games. Such games include, but are not limited to, Bagh Chal, Chinese Chess, older computer war strategy games that can be played hot seat like Clash of Steel, Storm Across Europe, TripleA, Koei games, Battle Isle, etc.
C. Wargames - My favorite genre. I am a grognard from way back, cutting my teeth on Avalon Hill, Milton Bradley, and SPI games. I am especially interested in making appointments to play specific people with specific games at the public places listed above. I am up for a quick game like War At Sea or a long game of Paths of Glory. I think I am happiest gaming when I am looking at hexes with a pair of tweezers in my hand.
I am looking for more opponents in catagory C. If you have some time, are looking for a live opponent, and enjoy a friendly, yet competitive, game, e-mail me.
Happy wargaming, everyone!
P.S. The Top 10 are games I really, really like.
P.P.S. The Hot 10 are the last 10 games I actually played. Number 1 is the last game I played, number 2 is the one before that, etc.
