About Me
I am a 50 something male (born in 1960) who games both boardgames and miniatures. I generally game at least twice a week. I also hit about three cons a year. I am the surviving founding member of the Miniature Wargaming Society of Sacramento (started in 1986) M_W_S@yahoogroups.com
I play almost any kind of game. I play a lot of Combat Commander, Race for the Galaxy, Up Front!, 1960 Making of an election and just about any other game our group can buy. In miniatures I generally play Ancients, AWI, WWII, Moderns, Vietnam, Necromunda and other SF oriented games.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Besides gaming I read a lot of Science Fiction, Military history, Modern Gothic novels (Jim Butcher, Charlene Harris, Charlie Huston). I am a member of Netflix and average a movie a week. I am currently hooked on Torchwood and Dr Who.

Played ASL "Strangers in a Strange Land" at Pacificon. Played Horus Heresy last week. Looks like I might not get in a game this Saturday but will be playing miniatures on Sunday at the Miniature Wargaming Society meeting.

Thanks. I've been browsing around and this looks like a great site and a good group of people!

Been playing a LOT of ASL lately. Played Friday the 13th today. Lost as Soviets. Very tight scenario. Worth playing again.

Thanks for the welcome Mike. I'm just starting getting back into ASL through ASLSK although I do have most of the official modules.

Back frm GMT West. Played Successors, Epic Command & Colors, Atlantic Storm & Dominion. Spent $ on Paths of Glory, Kutuzov, Operation Norway, Command and Strategy magazines with Operation Kadesh and a few other games. I got a chance to check out Chad and Kai Jensen's latest effort. Interesting stuff...
GPS in the phone wouldn't let me choose to drive back up I5 so had to go up 99. We played "What's that smell?" on the way back up. We were able to identify skunk and manure but a few odors defied description.
