My Profile

My board gaming started back in a tiny little village in Blighty around 1980, with games by SPI, AH and GDW. After moving to the big bad city (aka Bristol) I lost touch with my board gaming friends and fell into the alluring clutches of new gamers with first miniatures and then computer gaming.

After moving to California in the early 21st Century I rediscovered my affection towards board gaming as well as discovering the appeal of Euros.

So I am capable and willing to play grog wargames, block games, party games and Euros; and when I am in the mood, I will even play ameritrash.


My recently played games include:





Random games from my collection include:




Trading Games etc
If you are interested in a game that I have for trade, and do not have a trade match then make me a reasonable offer for money and/or games. I am primarily interested in wargames but I do try and keep my Wishlist up to date.

Note that I do have some items on my trade list that I value highly and might not be willing to trade unless there is a juicy but reasonable trade.


Guilds / Groups / Conventions



The main organiser and a regular attendee of the Ventura Country Strategy Boardgamers group on Meetup. This meetup group has replaced the Ventura County Board Gamers Guild here on BGG, and the Ventura County Board Gamers Yahoo Group.

The meetup group has over 300 members and has held almost 400 meetups with an average of two a week.

In 2012 we began to hold one day DOG (day of gaming) events, with BALTARFEST 2012 and FATDOG 2012; in 2013 we started the year with ANYDOG 2013 and soon followed that with TWELFTHDOG 2013 and PADDYS-DOG 2013.



Wargame Bootcamp
Along with 2 other blokes (Karl and Brett) I am an organizer of the Wargame Bootcamp; a group that seeks to teach games and expand the playing and enjoyment of wargames. The bootcamp also has a BGG Guild.

In addition to the activities at the local Strategicon convention, we have regular Wednesday night vassal and ventrilo sessions startting at 6:30pm Pacific time.




Active member and co-organiser of the Socal Gamers group; which also has a BGG Guild.

I also regularly attend the Strategicon conventions in LA, where I normally teach game at the Wargame Bootcamp.

My Avatars include



To mark the 60th Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and of Her other Realms and Territories, Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.


My current avatar is a Pirate, from the unofficial name of Bristol Rovers F.C.


My old avatar is the PG Tips Monkey, and not a picture of me, honest.



My previous avatar is taken from the art of my fellow Bristolian Banksy.

Schrödinger's game
Me being philosophical about board games.

A game in original shrink is considered complete because it is in shrink, but the contents have not been inventoried to prove it is complete.
A game out of shrink can be inventoried to determine if it is complete but in the process the shrink is removed so it is no longer compete.

Therefore a game in shrink is both complete and not-complete at the same time, and the only way to know is to remove the shrink.
