Neal is a professor and avid gamer. He has play tested for Shadowfist CCG and Strategy and Tactics Press. He is a European history buff, political expert, and sports junkie. In the TTCG he is the organizer of the game sessions, owns most of the 100s of games, and is the resident rules lawyer.
Neal loves to acquire games solely to read and deconstruct the game design. He will play pretty much any game from serious hex-based historical war games to abstract Eurogames to party/family games. Much like his brother Stew, he was raised on Risk and Avalon Hill games. Neal has a weakness for Sci-Fi games and tends to buy a few more in that genre than really is necessary.
