Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
Spilled cardboard blood over wargame hexes for the first time in... let's just say that Nixon was President.

Back when Watergate was just a Washington DC office complex.

Got my initial wargaming lunch handed to me by a high school classmate, who sat me down over Avalon Hill's classic Waterloo game and said "I'm going to kick your (butt) in this, but you're going to love it."

He was right - on both counts.

I didn't play another Nappy game for 40 years (the sting of being dumped by your first dice never leaves).

Been wargaming ever since. Jobs, wives, CDG designs, pc games - all came, went, or endured over the years, but the fascination with wargaming has always been there.

Even back when the hobby was declared on Life Support by all the so-called experts (wargaming is NOT dead. Or even close. It's had more resurrections than "Rolling Stones Greatest Hits" reissues).

I've even played another Nappy game since that first.

I lost.
Your favorite game(s):
The COIN series
Great Battles of History series
Unconditional Surrender-WWII in Europe
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Falling Sky; ASL SK
What game(s) have you played recently?
Falling Sky, ASL SK1, Lock n Load, Twilight Struggle, Wing Leader
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Getting in front of a mapboard about 4/5 days a week is a very good week.
How big is your game collection?
Too Big
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
Any game I can gin up around the tables at Games Plus, Mt Prospect, IL
About Me
I may be old, but I got to see all the cool bands...when I wasn't reading the 1st edition rules of PanzerBlitz and Squad Leader.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
