Hello Everybody

Hey everybody - I'm Ouric.

I've been in the pick-up game for almost two decades now; when I started Ross was the only game in town. Suffice it to say, things have changed a little since then...

I run a fairly undifferentiated Day/Night game that focuses primarily on DHV, with a strong social/humor undercurrent. Actually, there's a quote I like to remind myself of anytime I start to question what I'm doing:

You play only against the situation on the board; you deny the importance - the existence even - of the opponent.
Originally, that was written about the board game Go, but I like to think it applies pretty well to my scene.

I've been away from the forums since just after The Game was released, because I wasn't willing to deal with the influx of posturing and bullshit. From what I can see, that's calmed down a lot and the focus has shifted back to where it's supposed to be. So, I'm back.

Anyway, if you've read this far, good on you. Nice to be back in the online scene, and I'll see you on the real boards.
