20 QUESTIONS.

Noticed that a few gamer blogs have been doing the 20 questions thing. So I decided why not give my two pence worth.

1. Favourite Period.

The Ancient era. But not those bloody Romans, what did the Romans ever do for us.


2. Next Period Money No Object.

Hannibal.


7. Favourite Wargames Rules.

8. Favourite Sport and Team.

Will watch almost any sport. But support Fermanagh and local club Tempo . Always remember Croke Park 2004. The roar of 80 000 fans as Fermanagh raced on to the field in the All Ireland Semi Final, sadly it all ended in tears. It always does with Fermanagh, but ohh it was marvellous.


9. A One Use Time Machine.

Go back 40 years and do it all over again, but differently.


10. Last Meal on Death Row.

A great curry.


11. Fantasy Relationship and Why?

The Wife, because she keeps an eye on the blog. My life would be short and painful.
But if forced Maggie from Northern Exposure, ahhh what a woman. My hearts a racing.

Gabriel Byrne.


13. Favourite Comic Book Hero.

Darkie from Darkie's Mob as seen in the comic "Battle".

16. Biggest Wargaming Regret.

Not getting to Gaelcon in Dublin this year. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.


17. Fantasy Job.

Win the lottery and host a wargame, boardgame podcaster.

19. Favourite Wargaming Moment.

Finding the Omagh wargame club and realising that I wasn't alone. That I wasn't the only wargamer in the village. Meeting a whole new and interesting crew. Who are now gamer buddies.


20. The Miserable Git Question.

Bullying in all its many and ugly forms.
