I’m just a guy who has been playing all manner of board games, wargames, and a few role-playing games since the mid-70’s and want to share my love for the hobby. I particularly love heavily thematic, story-driven games, but I’m generally up for playing anything.
Currently, I’m proud to be working for two board game publishers I admire — Van Ryder Games and Thunderworks Games. Honestly, it’s a dream come true.
I love games that feature miniatures, and every now and then I like to paint them. For some reason this desire to paint hits me in the middle of deep Wisconsin winters, when I find myself creating toxic clouds of spray paint in my not-so-well-ventilated basement. Why I can’t do that in the summer is beyond me. If I sound a bit loony on some of the podcasts, this may explain a few things.
I also love to play wargames, which I started playing in the early 80’s with games such as Panzer Blitz and Flat Top. Today I dabble in everything from Memoir ’44 to Conflict of Heroes to Euros and everything in between.
I enjoy seeking out the perfect solitaire game, mixing cocktails, and dreaming about attending GenCon Indy year after year.
Thanks for stopping by, and hope you enjoy the board gaming goodness I’ve prepared for you. Let’s begin now, shall we?
