A little more on the elements of war - tactical - strategy - historical or fiction- skirmish games. I might have mellowed with age and enjoy most games. I am BIG on theme games I also like a good range of abstracts - see below. Love dungeon crawls and tile laying games. I paint minis and have a decent collection of WH 40k and fantasy. Also a fair number of Firestorm Armada minis, (these don't get much play). Other than that I have a broad range of games.
Because of the solo play, (mini's) and playing with kids I am enjoying the new D&D Adv. boardgames. Abstract games - Hive, Mills, Othello, Quarto. Also enjoy Backgammon and 42. My wife's current favourite games (and mine), Carcassonne and Lords of Waterdeep. Also play DBA. Games I have and want to play, Battleship Galaxies, Battlestar Galactica, MM44, Command and Colors Ancients and many others. Heroscape is one of my all time faves.
Born and raised in Calgary. I am a long time board, table top and RPG gamer, (cut my teeth on Squad Leader and D&D back in the day). Left the hobby for a good number of years but I'm BACK.
Karen and I had fun at this last meet up and we will be back again, great group!
