You can check out how that went HERE!This is me... On summer vacation, at the helm of a mighty sailship. And at work, making a fool of myself...FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS...I was born to descendants of vikings in the summer of 1970, and grew up in a small town called Viborg. (The town name dates back to the aforementioned vikings and means holy mountain, although it´s actually more of a very small hill! Denmark is a rather flat country!) My childhood consisted of yearly family raids to the shores of foreign countries and very basic boardgaming, nothing fancy really...FAST FORWARD THROUGH THE NEXT 30+ YEARS...The first really big gaming experience i recall was Stratego. I really loved that game back in the early 80s. (I even made my own version, before my parrents were persuaded to fork over the cash for a real copy). And then, when I saw ET in the cinema, I was totally absorbed by the short scene where the kids were playing Dungeons&Dragons, and even read the ET novel, rereading many times the passage where they play, trying to get as much info as possible about this fantastic game. Over the next few years I experimented a lot with small scale miniatures and components stolen from other games to make my own fantasy stuff. None of this has survived, which is probably for the better, but it did have the effect, that when the fantasy-adventure, you´re the hero, type books came out a few years later ( Remember the Warlock of Firetop Mountain?), I was REALLY ready for it and quickly branched into roleplaying games.
I played these a lot during the last half of the 80s and the first half of the 90s, whereafter my interest slowly faded out. In 1990 I bought Space Hulk, my first forray into "hobby-gaming", and soon turned to Warhammer 40k. For an entire decade my gaming was almost GW exclusive, spanning games like Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, space Hulk, Blood Bowl, EPIC, Necromunda, Gorkamorka, Mordheim and so on, until about 6 years ago, when a few things happened... I met my former girlfriend, who was a compulsive gamer, she introduced me to Settlers and I bought Doom, the boardgame. Having a gaming girlfriend led me to revisiting some old, but looong unplayed favourites, like Space Hulk and Blood Bowl, while Settlers and mainly DOOM led me to the internet, eventually leading me to Boardgamegeek, which has really opened an entire new world of gaming possibilities for me! PROFESSIONAL LIFE...I work at a club for kids aged 10 to 14 and am currently expanding the gaming horizons there too, trying to escape the clutches of childrens games and "classic" family games. Current favourites include Carcassonne, Ticket to ride, Citadels, Ca$h ´n Gun$, BANG!, Heroscape and Doom.
My coworkers are getting into these games as well, and I know there were games under a lot of the kids christmas trees last year, and probably will be again this year!GAMING AND OTHER PASSTIMES...I host a bi-weekly semi-open game night! I like getting creative with my games, which has resulted in stuff like this:
Apart from gaming and related hobby activities, I can be found immersed in my huge and still growing comic book collection, drawing and painting, watching movies, reading novels, playing videogames, surfing the net, and reading stuff about stuff, to know more about stuff... current stuff of special interest includes dinosaurs, biology and evolution, samurai/japanese history, art and architecture, meso-amirican cultures, WWII and sushi!
I´ve always been partial to women with broad, childbearing hips and well rounded thighs.NOW GET ON WITH SOMETHING ELSE!!!If you have read through all of this with the image of a huge, blond, axe-wielding, horn-helmeted raper and plunderer in mind, you´re way off!MY GAME RATINGS:I use this system for rating games, as some of the BGG criteria simply don´t fit me. For instance, there´s no game in the world I would be willing to play all the time... And I find it easier to rate consistently with only these 5 grades. 10- Great game! Fun to play! Looks good! And/or rules and gameplay are elegant, even genious, and theme and mechanics are well integrated.
8- Also great! Just not quite as great as a perfect 10!
5- Can be played occasionally, with the right crowd, or for variaton, or to remind you just how great those really great games really are...
might apply to some expansions, that drag down an otherwise great game.
3- Bad or broken, but if there´s nothing better to do, you might be persuaded to give it a go... Might have sentimental value to still be in the collection.
1- Can´t find much, if anything at all, to like about this game...I don´t play Magic, but just for the heck of it, I took the "What color are you? Test"
Take the Magic: The Gathering 'What Color Are You?' Quiz.I´m proud and honoured, and wish to thank HIVEGOD and the little people...JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT, I´M KEEPING TRACK OF VISITS TO MY PROFILE.
(SINCE SEPTEMBER 2009)
