Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
Not much into forums but CSW's Monstercon is the "Cat's Meow" of wargaming. I haven't missed one yet(knock on wood). So, I'll give this a try.I have been playing wargames since I was 15. I'm 60 now. My favorite Historical Periods are Ancient and Medieval but do play all eras of History. I live in Joliet, Ill.
Your favorite game(s):
My favorite games come and go as new games come out but my favorite system is GMT'S Great Battles of History. I wish they would apply it to the Middle Ages. I always buy two copies from this system as they come out. I need backups.
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
20 hrs per week
How big is your game collection?
400+
About Me
I started board gaming around age 15/16 with AH's Tactics II that my father bought me for xmas. I've been hooked ever since. My father was a lifer in the Air Force so I moved around somewhat. I grew up in three main places; Texas(home state), Florida, and Japan. Left home at 18 and joined the Army. Did a tour in 'Nam and got out in '69. Married 4 years later to spunky little woman from Thailand. I have 2 kids, a son and daughter, both grown up with college degrees. I'm the only one in my family who missed out on college(1.5 yrs). Wife has a degree too, in education. Worked at a chemical company for 39 yrs. and just retired. Now I can try to catch up on my reading and gaming.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Reading, traveling( been all over Asia and Europe), Rock and Roll music and of course, wargaming. Favorite book of all time: "Pebble in the sky" by Issac Asimov; favorite movie of all time: "No Highway in the Sky" with James Stewart; & favorite song of all time: "Gimme Shelter" by the Rolling Stones.
