Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
My intro to consim: Eric; met him at Connections 2010.
I transitioned from rubber bands to dice while in college in the late '60s. I've about 1400 miniatures, mostly musket period, and hosted the game shown in Eric's Connections photos. The last few years, my son, now a veteran infantry platoon leader, has done a good job of not letting me win very often!
Mike Rizzo, now in Texas, introduced me to Richthophen, and since he always took the Germans, and left me with the early-War Allies, used to beat me quite regularly as well!
Your favorite game(s):
"Charge!" (miniatures); Richthophen. I use the latter as part of a class in "Combat Modeling" I'm responsible for as part of a Georgia Tech Professional Development M&S Certificate program. For that, I use Tumbling Dice miniatures to make it more colorful.
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
David and I are planning a "Charge!" game using Scenario 21 of Charles Grant's "Scenarios for All Ages" book.
What game(s) have you played recently?
Charge!; The Innovation Game; both at Connections.
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Not enough!
How big is your game collection?
About 1400 troops.
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
Generally, we play at home in Yorktown, VA. I teach computer programming two nights a week, and that keeps other outside activities down.
About Me
Sr. Research Scientist (Comp. Sci.) for GTRI; interested in both deterministic and Monte Carlo combat attrition models.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
- Simon Scarrow "Eagle" series: inspired about 250 Imperial Romans and Britons...
- Cadfael series: inspired about 125 knights and a castle or two.
