To my 2014 Secret Santa: Thank you so much! I got Spartacus and Democrazy and I can't wait to get them to the table in 2015!

To my 2010 Secret Santa: Bellissimo! You got me a couple games I seriously, seriously wanted. Thank you!

To my 2009 Secret Santa: Awesome. You went way above, sir. I'm amazed. Indonesia is becoming a fast favorite, and having my own copy of War on Terror is awesome too. The extras were a nice touch as well

Thank you, Secret Santa 2008! Wealth of Nations is simply awesome, we love it.

I currently run 3 ongoing projects on the Geek:

One Degree of Separation. is a song name game, played for GeekGold. ODoS XI is the current version.

The BGG Chain of Generosity is an ongoing giveaway chain. Sign up to win a game. If you're drawn as the winner for that game, you give away one of your games. There are currently at least 10 giveaway chains, plus a Europe-only and Australia-only list. See the Subscription Thread for more details.

I have also just started the Global Geek Photo Album, where a Kodak Funsaver camera circles the world, photographing geeks and their favorite games.

In addition I'm an amateur/hobbyist game designer and am also becoming something of an amateur reviewer.

Besides Board Games, I love Cars, particularly older American cars (50s, 60s.) I also like to play around with computers, primarily alternative operating systems. I love Apple Macintosh stuff. I have also taken an interest in photography, both film and digital. I prefer Pentax cameras.

I have a list of Web Comics that I read regularly, including Girl Genius, Real Life, User Friendly, PVP, Starslip Crisis, XKCD, Cyanide and Happiness, Lackadaisy, and many, many others.
