I’ve always enjoyed gaming. From my first NES that I had to work to pay for half of ($100 is a lot of work when you’re 10!) to modern board games. I used to play to “accomplish things” (I didn’t realize that at the time), but now it’s mostly to spend time with friends. Here’s a nice list of all my favs:


  • Puerto Rico
  • Carcassonne
  • Illuminati
  • Settlers of Catan


  • Unreal Tournament (2004 was the best IMO)
  • StarCraft
  • The Neverhood
  • Warcraft III (not the game itself, the platform and oh-so-many custom maps)
  • World of Warcraft
  • Sam and Max Hit the Road
  • Day of the Tentacle
  • Full Throttle
  • Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
  • Portal
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Worms (Armageddon was the best)



  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • Adventures of Lolo - classic puzzle game
  • Micro Machines - top-down driving game


  • Final Fantasy X


  • Capture the Flag (college rules)
  • Scavenger Hunts
  • Egyptian Rat Screw
