Please Introduce Yourself to the Wargaming Community!

I started wargaming in about 1982 with AH Waterloo and Starship Troopers and Yaquinto's Ironclads (still have all three). I enjoy all kinds of board and non-collectible card games, including euros, coops, and "ameritrash," but would like to see a resurgence of historical wargaming and wanted to create a place for various wargamers I know to come together, share interests, and organize games.

What Wargames or Miniatures Games Do You Like to Play?

Tide of Iron, Panzergruppe Guderian, Storm Over Arnhem, Thunder at Cassino, Hammer of the Scots, Richard III, Victory: Blocks of War, Here I Stand, Nexus Ops, Fortress America, Neuroshima Hex, Vinci, Ironclads, Red Storm Rising, Hunt for Red October, Twilight Imperium, Eclipse, Age of Conan, War of the Rings... I am looking forward to the Empires in Arms game we are organizing for this summer, and would like to play more pre-WWII wargames. I also have a pile of unplayed Victory Games to try someday including NATO, Korean War, Vietnam, Across Five Aprils. I like historical miniatures, but have never had the time or patience to collect, assemble and paint them - that is, I like other people's historical miniatures! :-)

In What Area Do You Live and Are You Willing to Host Games?

Beltzhoover, near Mt. Oliver, in the South Side of Pittsburgh. I have been hosting games and Meetups at my home since 2008. I have two large custom-built covered game tables suitable for long term, multi-session games. Many games have been played on these tables, including a six Sunday massive double Tide of Iron game, three Saturdays Here I Stand Game, and multi-session Victory Blocks of War games.


I am a 40-something professional and gamer. I am the assistant organizer at Steel City Gamers Meetup, a member of GASP, and I run CHUCK-a-CON Game Sales. I like all kinds of board and non-CCG card games, but wanted a place for Wargamers to meet.
