I started gaming in 1976 when I found my friend John recreating Jutland on his bedroom floor with Lego bricks.
I enjoyed mostly miniatures games, but mixed in with Risk, D&D, Traveller, and Diplomacy. I was a member of Harlow wargames club at Burnt Mill.
Going to university in 1982, I started my long term relationship with SFBand WRG ancients, as well as Call of Cthulhu and Civilization, and played my only game of Gulf Strike all the way through. This is when I started reading wargames rules just for fun blush
But this stood me in good stead as after a second degree, I got a job designing and running simulations in the civil service in 1987, and was introduced to Space Hulk and GW. I joined the Guildford club that used to meet at The Star. Happy days; a WRG 7th, then De Bellis Multitudinis game a week for years; my 15mm Carthaginians reigned occasionally triumphant. My friend Dave kept Civ and then Advanced Civilization games going, and introduced me to a slew of others, including Britannia
In 1991 I was domesticated and moved to London, with a partner who not only enjoyed games, but painted as well! I still have Space MarineEpic Evil Sunz and Blood Bowl (Second Edition) Orcs painted by Jo. But around this time was seduced by the dark side of Magic: The Gathering, and still have all my cards dating back to late 1994. I stopped collecting after a few years, and haven't actually played for a decade. As my work took me to London I played the superb Netrunner, and as my partnership with Jo amicably dissolved, I moved back to SH, and picked up Formula Dé, and played a couple of years of championship, even managing a group at work.
Now I split my time between London, Beds and Lincs and haven't yet found time to organise regular attendance at a group at any of them( apologies to

whose Days of Game are legendary, but have been inconvniently timed recently!) , which means that my extensive (and still slightly growing) games collection lies mostly unused, save for the occasional stab at Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! – Russia 1941-42, Memoir '44 or Twilight Struggle straight after work. In Beds I have played Commands & Colors: Ancients a lot, and have a sub DoG with

where we played Hold the Line (disappointing) and Claustrophobia (fantastic). I am just about to lay out Where There Is Discord: War in the South Atlantic for a first play, and in Lincs am torn between HeroClix and Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game to set up on the coffee table!

More recently, I have

to thank for re-grognarding me, and introducing me to A Victory Denied, Warriors of God and Red Winter: The Soviet Attack at Tolvajärvi, Finland – 8-12 December 1939 for example.
