Used to play this board game many years ago until my opponent moved to a different part of the country. Not sure how good either of us were, hope to learn some new tricks now :)
My avatar coin is a 6 1/4 stuiver from 1672 minted in Groningen Ommelanden, a province in what is today the Netherlands. I felt it represented me decently. I'm a bit square too. And I'm born in 1972, which is just a 9 on the head away from 1672. The denomination is a bit unusual and so, I like to think, am I. I am a coin collector and this coin is in fact in my collection.
When it was minted the city of Groningen was under siege from the troops of the bishop of Münster and they didn't have access to their regular mint. So it's a coin made under duress. But the city emerged victorious in the end. I hoped this could be a good omen for my site results.
