Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
I bought a copy of Luftwaffe when I was in the 8th grade. My friend and I feverishly punched the counters, set the game up and attempted to play. We didn't get very far but I really liked it. Years later in High school, my brother and I wore out his copy of AH's Bismarck. I still have it today next to my pristine, unpunched copy.
Your favorite game(s):
AH Bismarck, 3W Sink the Bismarck, World at War Eisenbach Gap, James Bond Assault, Assault on Hoth, Avalanche Press Bismarck, X-Wing Miniatures, Fluxx
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Table is open currently. A travesty, I know
What game(s) have you played recently?
World at War Eisenbach Gap.
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Not enough
How big is your game collection?
I'm around 100 or so games and it comes and goes as I trade and sell and buy
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)

About Me
I'm a composer working as a Flash Developer to make a living until I can turn the switch and work as a full time musician. I'm also dabbling a bit in game design working on a couple of solitaire games. BTW-- The three songs listed on the page are mine.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Big College Football fan. Go Tennessee!
Hockey Fan. Watch and Play
Big Movie Fan. Will see most anything but I do draw the limit at those sappy mother daughter movies I can no way relate to.
Avid reader of History, SPy Thrillers, Techno Thrillers and most anything that involves submarines.
Music is all over the map. Send me a message and I can elaborate.
I also enjoy building plastic models when time allows.

Open Letter To Board Game Designers, Publishers and Mobile Developers

This is an open letter to the people that feed our passion and lust for bits of cardboard to push around to conquer our enemies.

Dear Board Game Designers, Publishers and Mobile Developers,

I beg you to please please please when you decide to do a mobile version of your game take into consideration what you are designing for. You are designing for a hand held device that can be as small as couple of credit cards and as large as a sheet of 8x10 paper. Please try…

When Good Game Stores Go Good: Endgame - origianlly written 7/2/08

Well, the game store I blogged about in a previous post has closed its doors after 15 years of serving Atlanta. I wonder if it is the current state of the economy or the fact that when they moved locations they lost clientèle. I'm not sure. I'm sure I'll run into a gaming bud at some point that can offer some insight. My guess is the price of a gallon of gas and disposable income to spend on games are inversely proportional to each other.

I quit going after visiting the new location.… Continue

When Good Game Stores Go Good - originally written 3/16/06

I don't know what it is, but part of the appeal of going into a game store is going somewhere that's kind of a not a bad place to be but not a real nice one either.

My local game store (I say local when it was a good 40 minute drive with no traffic) moved from the location where I first discovered it. It used to be in this run down strip mall next to a Piggly Wiggly or Save Rite or some other kind of discount grocery store. It actually didn’t look like the safest place to be after… Continue

Thanks! There are advantages to spending a lot of years spinning vinyl, and then CD's.

Mike - unfortunately no one showed up. I stayed till 11:15am and with no shows - I locked up an dleft. It was at that time that one player from Fayetteville, Ga. came by but we had missed each other.

Will try again in May.

Catch you later

Mike - thanks for joing the Atlanta's Gamers Group - hopefully the drive won't be too bad for you if you can make the Peachtree City Meeting!
