The Five Questions
What was your Gateway Game?
The game that got me into board games, all those years ago, was Stratego.
What was the last game you really enjoyed playing?
[As of October 2016] The last game that really knocked my socks off was Xia: Legends of a Drift System. Boy do I hate that title though…
How big is your game collection?
My collection is probably modest compared to many. I’d peg it at just over a 100 or so games.
What is your favorite type of game to play?
It’s hard to say no to a good deckbuilder or area control game!
How do you feel about Monopoly?
I don’t hate Monopoly like some do; I just don’t find it fun. But if it gets someone interested in playing games and then they can become introduced to games beyond Monopoly, Trouble, or what have you, then I think the game served a useful purpose.
