Because every gamer needs Victory Points!

This website is dedicated to board games, miniature games and model and terrain making! I’ve been in the hobby since around 1988 and I love games. They are what started my interest in statistics which is how I got my day job as a data scientist. When I relax it is to the sound of clattering dice and the joy of facing my opponents in real life over imaginary conflicts on the table!

I’ve been blogging about my hobby since 2005 if I recall correctly. I think my first blog entry was around 2005 on what is now the Google blogging site. A few years ago I started to make my own websites and switched to WordPress. I haven’t looked back once!

The heart of this site can be summed up by the following quote:


“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”

–Simon Pegg
