PROFILE:

From Trading in the Mediterranean to FPS, I love games. While I grew up in a house without consoles, PC gaming and board gaming were a large part of my formative years, and continue to influence my life. In this golden age of board gaming, I have jumped in headfirst in to anything table top. As a ludilogical student, I love thinking about how games work, their mechanics, their elegance and most importantly, enjoying how fun they are. Favorite Board Game (at the moment): Twilight Struggle Favorite PC Game (base solely on play time): Tie between WoW and DII Fell free to email me: comments, concerns, questions, feedback, rants, and/or suggestions.
