Egads.. where to begin.
Name: Graeme Bayless
Games: (too long to list everything, but I'll try to categorize)
- Actively seeking to play: Star Wars Miniatures (yes, the old discontinued Hasbro game), Blood Bowl, Warhammer 40k (just getting back in after a hiatus of three (yes 3) editions), Battletech (I have played in the semi-regular games at Game Depot, so likely covered there)
- Additional interests: Boardgames (everything from german-style to old school wargames... I'm a former tournament-level Star Fleet Battles and Advanced Squad Leader player), RPGs (would love to find a regular group my wife could join with me... preferred systems are Shadowrun and GURPS, but with the right group the system matters less), CCGs/LCGs (I've mostly sold off my personal collection, so would depend on the group)
How long have you played: Um... I played my first boardgame (France 1940) in 1971. I was 8. I did my first design work on the original Traveller system in the mid 70s, and did my first credited work on Star Fleet Battles (and a few others) in the mid-80s. I've been a video game designer and developer for 26 years. And yes, none of that matters on this question... but I can safely say I've been playing boardgames for 42 years
What Game Stores: Imperial Outpost and Game Depot when I can. I live 30-40 minutes from each, sadly.
Residence: North Scottsdale
I work a full time job that consumes my days until 6PM usually, and I like to actually see my wife on occasion... so gaming during the week at game stores is generally impossible. On nights where the store is open late during the week I could potentially adjust to allow a single night/week as a game night. Alternatively, I'd be available one or two weekend days/month for regular games. Mostly, just looking to see what kind of folks and game groups abound here
