Hometown: San Diego, CA

I've enjoyed every version of A&A that I've played, plus Attack! and Superpowers. I also like the old WWI-era Diplomacy for up to 7 players, with wooden blocks for armies & fleets, and no luck element in the combat. I also like History of the World.
My son suggested I look for a Portland/Vancouver gaming group on meetup.com, since I having done any regular gaming since I moved up here from San Diego, in 1993. I used to play weekly with 5 or 6 friends, and still have most of our favorite games.
You're laible to get hooked on a great evening of gaming whether its the various permutations of Axis & Allies or other military die-rolling slug-fests... or Diplomacy or 4-player Conquest, neither of which have any die-rolling at all; or nominally non-military games like Civilization or Rail Baron (which can both be played bloody-mindedly even so).
