When I asked my 5-year-old if he preferred Sci Fi to Fantasy, he said Fantasy. Reason: "Because Magic"

I'm often accused of being too complimentary in my reviews. To those who believe so, I hope you learn to be less critical and enjoy more.

Aristotle said, "Democracy is when the indigent, and not the men of property, are the rulers." Change often causes conflict and more times than not is fueled by the unrest of the populace. It's the...

Son: Is it up to the player to have a good time or the game?
Me: You mean whose responsibility is it to provide fun?
Son: Yes.

Better Parenting Through Games and Geekiness!
Introduction
Hi, my name is Cyrus.

I am father of 3, a geek, a board/card/dice game fanatic, a technology lover, a comic book reader, an Anime watcher, a music listener, a film buff (no, not really), a devourer of literature, and a bald man. 

I spend my free time on my web site, Father Geek, waxing poetically about the joys of teaching my children important life lessons through play. 

When I am working, I dream of all the things I will do with my free time. When I actually have free time, I usually squander it on something frivolous but worthwhile like playing with my kids.

My personal motto: Better parenting through games and geekiness! Be yourself, share your passions, and connect with your children, your friends, and your family through the medium that makes you the most happy, the most comfortable, and the most excited!
