What or who got you into gaming?

I started playing RPGs when I was about 12. Before that, solo gamebooks (e.g. Fighting Fantasy) were what got me interested in gaming.

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

I like tabletop RPGs, board games, and card games, but would also be up for trying wargames (either miniatures or hex-and-chit). Favourites include: 1. RPGs: D&D (original to BXCMI), AD&D (original to 2nd edition), Pathfinder, anything from Palladium, Warhammer FRP (original); 2. Board Games: Arkham Horror, Talisman (2nd edition), Risk, Scrabble; 3. Card Games: Magic, Euchre, Poker. I must mention that I'm very keen to try some old-school RPGing (e.g. DCC, OSRIC, Swords & Wizardry, Labyrinth Lord, Mutant Future, LotFP, et cetera) if I can find some like-minded players.

Are you a casual or hardcore gamer?

I would say, right now, a casual gamer, but with the right group I could definitely slide into the hardcore.

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

Whenever I have the chance.

Cake or Pie? - and why?

Cake - usually sweeter, and less messy.

Introduction

I've lived in London for 6 years now. Aside from the occasional game of Magic or Arkham Horror, I haven't had much chance to game with others since being here. Would love to get back into RPGs in a serious way!

What John is saying about this Meetup Group

I attended Friday evening, July 4, 2014, and had a great time! I was introduced to the board game 'Tomorrow', the dice game 'King of Tokyo', and the card games 'Skull and Roses' and 'Hanabi'; they were all tons of fun (especially 'Hanabi'). The pub was comfortable, and everyone was very friendly and enthusiastic. I would definitely attend again!
