I formed Camel City Gamers in Nov 2008 in the hopes of creating a community of like-minded gamers. It's been very successful, and I hope you'll join (if you haven't already)!
I like games that make me think a lot, but that doesn't mean I don't like to have fun. I like games that combine both strategy and fun. I like multi-player games with good player interaction. I like decisions and controlled randomness. I am not a fan of many two-player games, totally abstract games, or games that are completely devoid of strategy.
My favorite games change fairly frequently, but recent hits have been California Gold, AquaSphere, and Richard III. Medium- to medium-heavy strategy games are the ones I am most drawn to, though I'm OK with the lighter ones usually. I like the idea of theme-driven or dice-driven games, but I don't have the patience for ones that are too random or take four or more hours to play. My favorite of this genre is A Touch of Evil, a game set in colonial times where players take on foes such as The Headless Horseman. I have also found that I like some cooperative games like Yggdrasil and Ghost Stories. Lastly, I also enjoy a good dexterity game once in a while.
I play clawhammer banjo and listen to vinyl, and I really like spicy Indian food. I self-published a board game in 2012 called Garden Dice.
Analog is the new digital. Playing board games and listening to music are my two biggest passions.
You should join this group if you enjoy meeting people and playing board games in a relaxed atmosphere! The group offers the perfect blend of social interaction, friendly competition, and mental stimulation.
