=======================


About me:

I am a stay-at-home dad of two boys (9 and 6). Our oldest is severely autistic and mostly non-verbal. It is tough and gaming has provided a much needed mental break and an opportunity to socialize that I am very grateful for.

This year we left all of our "old life" behind and moved to Katy, Texas a suburb of Houston. Really enjoying it but haven't settled into a game group yet. Working on converting a few Church friends and neighbors though

So moving (aka broke/no game funds) + no game group = been a bit out of the loop but I'm looking forward to catching up at BGG.con this year.

I enjoy all sorts of games but particularly fond of Economic games (Power Grid, Acquire, etc), pickup-and-deliver (Merchant of Venus, Empire Builder) and engine building games (London, etc). Dice are always good as well I lean to euros but an occasional ameritrash is good as well


I've become a bit addicted to thrifting for games - some of my better finds include: an unpunched Civilization, a sealed Winner's Circle, Carcassonne and MANY expansions, Catan, 40th anniversary Risk, and about 50 others by current guesstimation. Currently at thrifting 5 SdJ winners.

I am also a big fan of "pimping" my games so that has been another nice offshoot of the hobby. Some things include adding magnets to Steam Park, a wooden board for Summoner Wars, a board for Ascending Empires, a multi level tile holder for Ghost Stories and Blue Moon City, turntables for Dominion and a few other odds and ends.

I'm colorblind so I've also had to mod several games to be useable.

I've also dabbled a tiny bit in making "how to play" videos - I've done one for Power Grid Factory Manager. More on the horizon someday - just no time.

Other activities that keep me busy include church and ukulele - I used to run several websites - a long time ago DVDaddicts.com (long gone now) and more recently a pair of uke websites - ukeland.com and a podcast ukecast.com (now under new management).


I've attended BGG.con yearly since 2011 - can't wait for this years!
