Current: Oct 2015 - Feb 2016 Updated: 2016-Mar-02



How I found BGG
By searching on Google for a solitaire variant for Space Hulk, 3rd edition. I tried a few but didn't really like any of them. I finally just decided to write my own, and I wanted to share it on BGG, so I registered then just to submit that. Had no idea I'd become such a BGG addict.

About my Username
My first username I ever created was when I was in High School and I went by DragonKnight99. The 99 for the year of my graduation. Later, I decided I wanted to change it to DragonKnight22 for my lucky number. That name was taken. So I tried 81 for the year I was born. Also taken. I did a search for "DragonKnight" and it returned a lot of matches. I wanted something a little more unique. I spent a lot of time coming up with different user names and eventually landed "Shacky" with zero returns on searches. I can't remember all the details of how I came up with it, but I do remember it was at the point where I was looking for 2 different words and taking syllables from them to combine them into a username. "Shack" came from my Dad's Radio Shack modem. the "-y" I don't remember. Also, I added the 22.
22 is my favorite number just cause it seems to pop up a lot. (Or it's really the only one I notice). My mom was 22 when I was born. All the numbers in my birth number add up to 22. I had a 22 in my locker combination for every year in high school across 4 different locks. Just a few examples.

Gaming History
I have been gaming as long as I can remember, however, I didn't really take on the title "gamer" till I was in college. When I was young, my gaming started with video games on my Dad's PC in Q-basic and DOS and family night board games where we mostly either played Monopoly or The American Dream and occasionally Yahtzee, Kismet, and Xaxxon. Whenever we went to visit the Grandparent's on my Dad's side, they always played Canasta but I never learned that one cause I think that was time for the adults to have fun. We also had an atari and later finally got a NES (I believe we got one after SNES was already out) and I would play on those occasionally.
During my High School years, I had a N64 and Playstation that I would play a lot with some friends I made. We'd get together every Friday night and play fighting games mostly. I was also introduced to RPGs, Final Fantasy III and Crono Trigger, and I fell in love with that genre almost immediately. When I moved and went to a new High School, video games became something that I did when I had nothing else to do. I was mostly busy with band or hanging out at the mall.
Midway through college is when my video gaming became a passion. I was constantly bored cause I wasn't into the whole party scene and found I didn't have much in common with people that liked to socialize. Here's where I started becoming more of a homebody and antisocial. I started getting every game system and enough games to keep me busy. I had fun every night I went home with my gaming. People would pick on me for it, but I didn't care, I was never bored.
Around 2003, a buddy of mine introduced me to Dungeons and Dragons. (It was 3.0 at that time) I was a bit concerned about it cause I remembered when I was in 10th grade, a friend of mine had Shadowrun and we couldn't really figure it out. (looking back, man we did so many things wrong) But I gave it a shot, and was opened up to a whole different world of gaming I never stepped into before cause I was too stuck on video games. However, due to my gaming experience, mostly with RPGs, I was able to understand things a lot better. This same person later introduced me to fantasy board games and Magic the Gathering. I didn't take to fantasy board games at first, but I finally understood how Magic the Gathering worked (another game I was taught early in High School and didn't understand). It wasn't until he introduced me to Memoir '44 and Thunderstone in Nov 2010 that the board game bug hit me. And it hit me hard. I went from having very few board games to dedicating a room to it and having a shelf full of them. No longer was I just a video gamer.
But now, I'm into too many things. I don't get a lot of extra money to work with, so I have to spend my money wisely. There are way too many games on my wish list, both video and board games.
As for my present day life... I'm a Master Control Op for a local television station. My wife and I are both gamers that mostly enjoy video games, board games, and tabletop RPGs. I have experience DMing D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder. My DMing style usually falls around 1/3 Roleplay, 2/3 Dungeon Crawl.
