How did you hear about Camel City Gamers? What made you decide to join?

I was looking for a gaming group like I had known in Oklahoma, which knew and played Carcassone and Catan and such games, and I found it here. I have been very pleased.

Describe yourself as a gamer. Tell us about your gaming likes/dislikes.

I have a collection of games now (not especially big, but quite decent) which includes Carcassone, the Catan Dice Game, Hey That's My Fish, Classic RISK, RISK 2210, TransAmerica, Doctor Lucky, Anachronism, Martian Fluxx, Havoc, my repurposed 2-Player Star Trek Card Game, my repurposed Havoc on Parade, Citadels, The Great Dalmuti, chess, Pit, In a Pickle, Bang!, Alien Abduction, Guillotine, and Jishaku magnets. Wow, I have more games than I had thought!

What are your favorite games, and what games would you like to try? What types of games are you drawn to? What types do you try to avoid?

Anyone who has met and played with me probably knows I lean towards the so-called "abstract strategy," more chaotic games.

Tell us anything else you'd like us to know about you; for instance, the date of your last Everest expedition

The Catan Dice Game was my first modern purchase, after chess and classic RISK and a large Star Trek collection. I began my hobby interest in the 90s with the Star Trek Customizable Card Game, played tournament-sytle not unlike Magic. There was a long break with intermittant chess and RISK games until I found a Eurogames group out in Tulsa. It has snowballed from there. Unlike most gamers of our type, I have never played D&D. I have joked with my girlfriend, in high school I just wasn't cool enough to play D&D. Ha ha!

Introduction

Gamer from Tulsa Oklahoma. Well, backup, I am born n raised Triad but moved to Oklahoma, now back since 09. I was looking for you guys for a while. I now go to MACE and SCARAB, sometimes.

What Rich is saying about this Meetup Group

It is what's happening in and around Winston-Salem. Not snobby but not without opinions. If you are into longer, more complex gaming (or shorter, more abstract) this will introduce you to so much variety.
