I'm 44 years old, married, and living in Colchester, UK. I've been gaming ever since I was a teenager, my first ever wages went on a copy of The Fury of Dracula, and I've been steadily collecting ever since.

I love a game to tell a story, be it the crazy imaginings of Tales of the Arabian Nights, or the focussed puzzling of Mage Knight, a strong narrative will draw me in every time. I'm not fond of auctions or deep economic simulations, and I actively avoid anything that requires you to backstab.

I've designed a few games, all of which have been rendered obsolete when a much better version is announced by a big game publisher a couple of months after I've been working on them. So be on the lookout for a space exploration game using a streamlined version of the action card mechanic from Mage Knight coming soon...

Edited August 2015... oh look... Star Trek: Frontiers

For the last few years I've been running a charity 24 hour gaming marathon , which has turned out to be more popular than I ever could have imagined, and has created more than a few gamers!

Dear Secret Santa

Thank you so much for being Secret Santa for me this year!

Basically, if it's on my wishlist, I would love to have it, the numbers are just there to help you get an idea of what to look for first.

This has been a bit of a rough year. I had to leave work due to mental health issues in February, and I'm now having to consider changing career to something a lot less stressful and with a lot less responsibility. We've also had a house move to deal with and other stuff which has made life harder than it needed to have been. So we are looking forward to this Christmas as a new start and are determined to really enjoy it, so any contribution you could make to that would be most welcome indeed and very much appreciated!

I would love to be taunted, so don't feel shy!

If you don't know any UK games shops, I can recommend Shire Games ( and boardgameguru ( as having fantastic selections and a really good Secret Santa service.

Thank you again for taking part this year and I hope your Secret Santa is awesome and generous!
