Stuff I Like

A mishmash of things that tickle my fancy

I love to play all types of games. The game wall (which doesn't even hold them all) has three 6' bookshelves running the gamut from Monopoly and Risk through Iron Dragon and Robo Rally to Lunch Money and Give Me The Brain. Plus most card/board/dice games in between!
Internet Dueling League: MJ and I run the IDL. It's a way to play Car Wars with people who can't come to your house. We've had a few internet duels with some house and qualifying rules.
Why do I love games? Here is a quote (shown here without permission) from Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett:

"It is said that the gods play games with the lives of men. But what games, and why, and the identities of the actual pawns, and what the game is, and what the rules are - who knows?

Best not to speculate.

Thunder rolled.

It rolled a six."

MicroMachines 64 Mike and I get a huge kick out of racing the little cars on the table, the floor, and the garden in this Nintendo 64 game.
PC Games With the networked PCs at home, we like to play Masters of Orion II, Army Men, and WarCraft.
Conventions Lots of fun. I usually hang out, play lots of games, teach a ton of games, learn a few new games and work in the dealer's area. I've taken a bit of a hiatus from attending Origins and GenCon in the last couple years (yes, real life can change plans). But I do continue to work for Cheapass Games as the VP of PR.
The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.
