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 MÃ¼nster 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.
