Just fresh into my 30's, I've always loved playing games from an early age, despite a less-than-enthusiatic family!

I started a blog http://tonkseysgames.blogspot.com/ on 18th November 2008.

The very seed of my eventual path to Geekdom was when I fell in love with HeroQuest when it very first came out. This led to getting all its expansions & Space Crusade before moving onto more 'gamey' stuff along the same lines with Games Workshop. I never played any of the large table-top scale games such as Warhammer 40k, but absolutely adored Blood Bowl, Warhammer Quest & Space Hulk.

Before University, I 'grew' up somewhat & sold the lot & left gaming for a while - although I did still play Othello & Scrabble. Yet, years later (around 2005), there was something of a calling that led me to nostalgia & finding myself buying up HeroQuest, Blood Bowl etc from e-Bay.

Three years on & I find myself immersed in the Euros, wargames & Ameri-trash... what a ride it's been !

Bits about myself:-

1 - I have a 1st class BSc Maths degree.
2 - You probably wouldn't know it if you spoke to me, but I am profoundly deaf.
3 - My favourite author is Stephen King & I particularly love IT & The Shining.

My Top 10 are obviously the ten games I currently love the most & my Hot 10 are those which I most want to buy/try/play again next.
