By day (and night, far too often) I'm the Operations Manager at Digital Motorworks.

Most of the rest of the time I'm with my family or gaming, or thinking about gaming.

Currently playing a 14th level Shifter Paladin in a 4th edition DnD campaign. I'm also just starting to run a campaign of my own.

Willing to play boardgames whenever I can find people willing to lose to me :)

comment Any good way to add a handicap in Dominion?
You are getting a lot of answers with some form of "I haven't tried this, but". You should consult the Guidelines for Great Subjective Questions and refocus your question to encourage folks to share their actual experiences and not to answer based on conjecture.

comment Ferries and Tunnels in Ticket to Ride Expansions
@the - agreed, I'm a bit dissapointed that the ruling I cited was from March '08 and I was unable to find an updated rule set or an authoritative FAQ. I did see some rumors that the expansion may be reprinted. One can hope that the rules will get a bit upgraded then!

@Matt - Ha, so either way you go, switching from one version to the other will mess ya up :)

Personally, I don't hold back. I figure they won't learn if I take it easy on 'em. Then, when they earn a win on their own it is much more sweet. That doesn't mean I won't offer advice on their first couple games, or whenever they ask, just that I won't handicap myself in any way.

comment Games that can be played with just normal playing cards that are engrossing enough for a hardcore gamer
I was reaching for the upvote after the first sentence. The second sentence killed it for me though. I'd prefer you see you state the games and give a more reasoned answer on why they "just plain aren't fun" when clearly a lot of people enjoy playing them.
