What or who got you into gaming?

I got turned onto "historical simulation" gaming in 7th grade. I played a lot in middle and high school. During grad school (in the 80's) played AD&D on a weekly basis.

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

I like RPG's -- I've played mostly AD&D (1st and 2nd ed). I've played a little of "Call of Cthukhu" and MechWarrior. I've used the Harnworld setting for a (shortlived) AD&D campaign. I would like to try my hand as a PC with Harnmaster. In terms of wargames, I've paired my collection down to the ones I really like. SPI's WorldWar3, Sinai, Seelowe, and Avalon Hill's Third Reich among others.

Are you a casual or hardcore gamer?

20-25 years ago, I would have said hardcore, now I think I'd classify myself as a casual gamer.

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

I don't know, I think the time depends on the type of game. Some games need more time, and are more amenable for weekends.

Cake or Pie? - and why?

Pie -- I love the flaky pastry crust and the fruit filling (apple, cherry or blueberry are my favorites).

Introduction

Since I was kid I liked playing wargames (Avalon Hill, SPI, VG, etc.) I also like playing RPG's (AD&D, Harn). My life as an adult took me away from that hobby, but now moving to London, I thought I would try to find other gamers and play some.
