I was in high school, and was 1st board on the school chess team. Some of the other chess team members invited me to play wargames with them. My first was the old Anzio Beachhead with the black & white map and the assymetrical sequence of play. I got my butt kicked but was hooked. My next game was U.S.N., which I also got clobbered in.
Your favorite game(s):
Europe Engulfed, Asia Engulfed, FAB: Bulge, Leaping Lemmings, Twilight Struggle, Command & Colors: Ancients, Hammer of the Scots, Ardennes '44, Tigers in the Mist, Across 5 Aprils, Combat Commander, Chinese Farm, Wagram, Battle of Nations, and Washington's War.
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
What game(s) have you played recently?
Codenames, Ivanhoe, Wyatt Earp
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Favorite Movie is 'For Love of the Game'. It is the only film that I know of that has all three components of a great film. 1) Boy gets Girl, 2) The Detroit Tigers win, and 3) The New York Yankees lose.

Hey, Rick... I got a "friend request" from someone named Hotspur O'Toole. When I clicked on the pic (just the grey silhouette actually), this person shows you as being his/her friend. But I can't locate Hotspur in the members file. Any clue who this may be?
Not that I can't use all the friends I can get, but I like to at least know with whom I am dealing.
I'm glad you tasted the system my friend. Unfortunately, I can only afford so many conventions a year, and my trip to GMT West was subsidized (paid for) by a few California friends that really wanted me to attend.
Rick, just coming back from GMT East... Mike Johnson and me played two games of FAB... First one we really messed up a few rules, luckily for us Marty Sample and John Foley were there.
On the second game, we really tasted the system... We had fun and it was bloody. I figure we took 5 hours and we were sure to be able to cut an hour off from that with experience. You gonna explain to me how you got to GMT west and not East ;-)
