I just joined this group. I'm a long-time gamer, but mostly played
RPGs and computer games, with some dabbling in table-top miniatures
wargaming as well. After being very active in Plan B in the DC area
for a few years, I moved up here a few years ago for school and have
mostly just been playing computer games since then. About a month or
so ago, I recently got back into other forms of gaming.
My girlfriend gave me Arkham Horror for my birthday (I'm a Call of
Cthulhu fan), and I finally talked her and one of my roommates into
playing it - we had a blast, though our first game was a nine hour
overnight session (we were learning the rules and screwed up on the
end-game rules). So I just got into board games for the first time
(though I did really enjoy Axis & Allies back in the day). In the
past month, we've played Arkham Horror, Zombies!, Lost Cities, a demo
for Lord of the Rings miniatures, the Call of Cthulhu CCG, and Magic,
which my roommate used to play several years ago.
I'm interested in boardgaming, miniatures or hex-based wargaming,
RPGs, CCGs, etc. I don't yet know the rules to many board games, but
will probably pick up on the rules pretty quickly. I've recently
ordered several games, but several just arrived and I haven't had a
chance to play them yet. I just dug out my boxes of Warhammer Fantasy
minis and played a solo game and have been painting up my Lord of the
Rings miniatures after spending a weekend at the Games Workshop store
making Balin's Tomb terrain.
I mostly just play games with my girlfriend and one of my roommates,
but I'd like to game more and/or play games that they're not
interested in. I live very near Porter Square and am looking for
folks to game with occasionally. I see that there's a group that
games on Wednesdays in Porter Square but I don't know if the group is
open or closed.
I'm fairly busy this weekend, but am generally pretty free as I'm a
student and don't have office hours.
I look forward to gaming with some of you!
