Over the years I have been involved in many different kinds of games. This has given me an interest in many types: Abstract, RPG, Wargames, Miniatures, Ameritrash and Eurogames.

Today with 4 children most, if not all, face to face gaming is within the family. But as they are at a good "gamer age" 8 to 14 years, this isn’t bad and we enjoy a huge variety of games.


Abstract

There I grew up, were where few organized activities for kids. I sucked at football and ice hockey, so I started to go to the local chess club instead. I played quite a lot of competitive chess but stopped after a change of school at the age of 15. At that stage it was going fairly well, but it would have required a huge amount of study to reach higher levels.

I still enjoy an occasional game of chess, but today the interest has drifted towards classical eastern abstracts like go or shogi. The current favorite is XiangQi which has a very different feel than traditional western chess.

RPG

A few years in the early eighties I was in a group who played AD&D (first version) a lot. We tested other RPGs as well but most time was spent in the dungeons.

This was long a slumbering interest, but the oldest kids have convinced me pick it up again.

Wargames

During my RPG days, we also played a lot of wargames. Today I would call myself a collector more than a player. Once in while a little solitaire play, but most of the fun comes from the collecting. Hopefully this will change in the future.

Miniatures

This interest started almost by mistake. One Christmas we needed a stocking filler for one of the boys. We were in a hurry and first thing that caught our eye was a small box of Warhammer figures. It turned out that he was too young to paint them himself and I had to do it. It was great fun and I soon started to buy figures for myself.

Today I have way to many figures from various gaming systems. Also I’m almost a compulsory buyer of rulebooks.

Ameritrash and Eurogames

This is the latest addition to the list of interests and it is here that the most gaming takes place today.
