What or who got you into gaming?

A substitute teacher got me into real role-playing after years of Fighting Fantasy books. Then various school and University gaming groups reallu nurtured my love for it. Oh, and I learned English from reading the Players Handbook.

What sort of games do you like to play? What are some of your favorite?

Roleplaying wise I like Pathfinder/DnD, the new Star Wars RPGs by FFG, and I still want to GM a Hollow Earth Expedition games. Board game wise, I like deckbuilding and co-op games. Anything between one and three hours is my sweet spot. The only games I dislike are investments/money-centric games (Imperial? No thanks) and 6 hour+ strategy game painstakingly recreating historical moments (such as Here I Stand). My favorites include Smash Up!, Dominion, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Ghost Stories, Arkham Horror, Thunderstone.

Are you a casual or hardcore gamer?

Moderately hardcore. I have gamed a lot, I own many games, so I can understand a new game pretty quickly.

Do you prefer weekday, weekend or like to game whenever you have the chance?

Weekday evenings are doable but not easy - Friday and Weekends are the best.

Cake or Pie? - and why?

Cake ober pie any day. Unless its Sugar Pie made by my grandma.
