First and foremost, we’re gamers. We love board games, video games, RPGs, CCGs, dice games, games where you juggle live hedgehogs. You name it, we love it. We’re figuring you do as well or you wouldn’t be here.
We’re comic book readers. Give us a cover where someone is wearing a cape or a nice example of Onomatopoeia and we’re in heaven. Who needs sunlight when there are stacks to read, sort and box up?
We’re SF/F fans. Elves and of course Trolls rock. Give them a beam weapon and the ability to hack SSL certs on a distributed network of proto-AIs and we’re talking good times.
Please, make yourself at home, loosen up and be who you really are while you spend time in this community. We’re all a little different and we ask that you accept these differences rather than harp on them so that we can all feel free to indulge in our love of gaming. Want more specifics on who we are?
Owner/Editor in Chief – Ben: Born and raised in MA, shortly after High School I fled the states after a failed bid at becoming Mayor of a small, suburban town. I drifted through Europe with a group of ex-pats doing odd jobs and eventually we pooled together and bought a chicken farm.
After making a significant amount of Euros from the sale of eggs I migrated back to the east coast of the USA where I invested all of my savings into a kite manufacturer.
In my spare time I enjoy lobbing eggs at kites.
I’m also a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
Troll Child – Luca: Luca is 11 years old and is Ben’s daughter. She is an avid gamer and is excited about writing her own reviews.
Editor – Jonathan J. Reinhart: New England gamer who loves to talk about gaming. Blogging at www.wargamingforums.com. That is also the home to the bi-weekly hour-long gaming podcast titled Wargaming Recon.
