It all started with the Magnavox Odyssey.

In the eighties I discovered D&D. What followed was a haze of tabletop role playing in the school library. We also pretended to be super heroes, teen-aged mutant ninjas, and daring archaeologists.

In the early nineties, my BFFHS introduced me to Magic: The Gathering. We forsook all other activities to play. We played with every card we owned in a single deck.

It was joy.

I continued my love affair with addiction to Magic into the new millennium, ending abruptly in 2011 when I spent eight benjis on four cards. I'd hit rock bottom. Right around the same time I discovered that other games (not made by Wizards of the Coast) existed.

My gaming world exploded.


Welcome to Terrence

This is my game room, I call him Terrence. I spend my time here when I'm not writing, drawing or working. My kids, Lu and I play the pictured games together. I have over 224 games at the time of this writing, but my collection is in a constant state of flux.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard.
Do not let the pain make you hate.
Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
