I'm coming back to them all. I'm migrating into ASL, liked my intro to OCS, I like the CDGs, the blocks, the Combat Commanders, the Conflict of Heroes, SCS, and I'm hoping to start some TCS now too.
I'm not locked down to one game or system. I wish I had space for monsters, but I don't. With my schedule and work demands, I need games that can wrap up in a session for now.
I've avoided miniature gaming for a very long time, not because I'd not like it (I knew I would), but because of space and time. Board War Games take up less space and tactical systems like ASL, Combat Commander, and Conflict of Heroes are really miniature combat with cardboard.
I've started a gaming group for Throw Down Thursdays at the Source in MN with my friends Bob and Jim; my goal is simple: to get my war games more in play, to see new ones, and to create exposure and pull in new players. I'm not shy and will play them out in public.
I will engage with anyone.
The thing I love best in the games? The playing with people--period.
Your favorite game(s):
Squad Leader was a favorite as a kid and I'm now getting into ASL (via starter kits and core modules).
I'm playing a number of games, I'm not limited to type or style. I've enjoyed: CDGs, SCS, my introduction to OCS, miniatures, Combat Commander, Conflict of Heroes, and I have TCS, and The Gamer's Civil War Brigade Series in Queue.
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Deciding...maybe Musket & Pike
What game(s) have you played recently?
Combat Commander, ASL (starter kit), Conflict of Heroes, Operation Michael, For the People, Hannibal
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Every day pretty much. It keeps me sane and active
How big is your game collection?
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
The Source, Ginkgo Coffee House, clubs, Asmodee North America
A life long gamer and a good guy.
Pleasant, out going, good at getting my cardboard wiped from the field in one game...learning...and paying you back in the next play.
I like people. I like games. I like the time together.
Never stop learning, be OK to take a chance, keep fighting, go down swinging, laugh, and have fun; all good mottoes.
I can be clever, bold, subtle, smart, stupid, cautious, calculating, and reckless all in one round. :o)
However, I will not loose my smile, humor, fun or grace.

Jason, thanks for all you are doing to promote the hobby where you live; I hope your efforts are doing well and you are having a lot of fun doing it (I have to believe you must be!). You certainly play a good mix of games! My small group of regular gamers and I are also social players, although I've not given up on the monsters (yet)--I just need to get more time off and the "kitchen pass" to go to the larger wargame conventions that play them!
