Brant Guillory - Game Commando, BayonetGames

Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
I'm Brant, the wargame-design half of BayonetGames and contractor with Harnessed Electrons. Currently in Raleigh, NC, but with regular jaunts to Columbus, OH, and Monterey, CA. I love modern-era gaming, prefer face-to-face over the tabletop to any kind of digital gaming.
Your favorite game(s):
Warfighter series; SPI's Modern Battles quads; Lock'n'Load; World at War; Next Wars; 7 Wonders and Dominion with my 8-year-old son
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
7 Wonders; Dominion; Manouevre; Loving me some Tank on Tank from LnL lately
What game(s) have you played recently?
7 Wonders! (fantastic little game); Jamaica
Wargames: Warfighter series (Asian Thunder & World of Conflict), Next Wars I: Orange Crush, World at War series from LnL.
Non-Wargames: Carcassonne: the Castle; London; Ticket to Ride...
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Not enough!
How big is your game collection?
Wargames: 65 or so (after the last thinning for space); Eurogames: 20-25; RPG products: 200+ or so; and a whole lot of minis and random CCGs
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
Raleigh, NC (Triangle area); frequent trips to Columbus (CABS)... no local club around Raleigh, yet - hoping to start one soon
About Me
14 years in the military (split active/nat'l guard); 21 years as Army brat; work for a defense contractor doing wargame/software design and some training management; I run GrogNews.com and write for Battles! and a few others; love games with buckets of dice, and tho I can't stand the game, I have a fondness for the collectible D&D minis; I love finding neat games from small unknown publishers (Dark City, Fiery Dragon, etc)
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Favorite Movies: Ronin; Ocean's 11 (2001); Farewell to the King; Hi-Fidelity; Singles
Favorite TV Shows: Big Bang Theory; How I Met Your Mother; That 70s Show (been catching up on DVDs); seriously wishing there was a way to revive Studio 60
Favorite Sports: Soccer (USMNT, Newcastle United, Columbus Crew); College Football (NC State, South Carolina, LSU); Baseball (Astros); NHL (Hurricanes)

I dig hiking and biking outside with my son, and flat-water kayaking when the weather's nice. I like traveling and checking out historical locations (Stirling, Scotland is a great under-rated historical destination). My wife is a fantastic photographer, so we usually get postcard-quality pictures out of our trips, too.

"Hey Jamey! I share your concern -- I picked up Saipan when it came out, figuring it would be a nice diversion while awaiting OpMerc. One look at the CRT told me it was different enough to require some mental gymnastics compared to GTS. Interesting,…"

"Anybody up for a game of MMP's Operation Mercury? The initial landings near the Maleme airbase make for a nice one-map scenario and would fill a good part of an evening. Good intro to the GTS system, too."
