Despite being a geek, I don't actually work in IT.
I'm a working-class hero in my late-20s living just outside Edinburgh in Scotland. Below you will find my condensed life story, with a focus on gaming.
When I was a kid I used to enjoy playing a lot of the standards (Monopoly, Cluedo, etc.), but I got pretty bored of it. In my teenage years I dabbled with some Warhammer, but I got fed up of being a rubbish model painter, and the cost of keeping that hobby alive was horrific for someone my age. So I ended up not playing anything for years, until about 2006, when I randomly bought Colosseum, followed quickly by Power Grid and Puerto Rico... then my gaming addiction started. I introduced these games to my friends, and most of them are now hooked on gaming too. Which is nice.
As I mentioned above, I began playing mainly Euro games, but I've recently found a liking for American style games (mainly Descent and Arkham Horror) and the odd wargame (C&C:Ancients and War of the Ring). I'm a sucker for Ancient-themed games, and civ games, but I'm still looking for a civilization game that I'm 100% happy with. I don't think one's been made yet though. Through The Ages comes very close, but I still think there's something missing...
I have a tendency to forget to list my plays, so it's not complete. I'm doing my best to knock this habit on the head though, and lately I've been doing quite well with my play listings. Think I've pretty much listed everything I've played since the start of the year.
Top 10 and Hot 10 are updated very irregularly. My Top 10 are the games I want to play most at the time of writing, and my Hot 10 are the games I'd like to buy most, but my feelings on the subject change almost daily.(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)
