About Me
I currently live in Corpus Christi and have finally been able to start expanding my collection a lot more. I like just about any game as long as it has a decent theme and/or good mechanics. I will play light games like No Thanks, party games, card games (spades, hearts, etc) but what I really love are heavier games;(GMT titles like For the People, Washington's War, Sword of Rome, etc); light to heavy euro's such as Scoville, Colonists, Puerto Rico and non-GMT lighter war games like Hands in the Sea or even War-o's like War of the Ring and Wallenstein.

While I always love getting a new game and un-boxing it and learning all about it, what I love the most is getting repeated plays of a game in a short period of time and learning the quirks, nuances and deeper strategic opportunities available along with other players of similar skill level and then discuss afterwards and maybe play again if time permits. This has the most opportunities in heavier games but even a game with very easy rules like Spades has tons of depth and layers of strategy that you can peel back especially after you have played several times with the same group.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Besides games of course, spending time with family, watching shows on Netflix, fishing and reading about economics and history.

I do like TIME OF CRISIS a great deal but have yet to try HANDS IN THE SEA (and I know I need to as so many people have said it's such a fun experience)!
