Well, since you asked, yes, I’m very much a nerd and always have been. I started playing D&D in ‘82 and have occasionally played ever since with friends or my kids. Also played several other RPGs, and I even converted my garage into a game room with a specially made gaming table.
I collect board games of all types and genres.
Star Trek: The Next Generation is my favorite tv show of all time, and I’ve seen all of the other Trek shows and movies, as well as most sci fi made since ‘60.
I read comics extensively as a kid, and still pay attention to what’s going on in continuity.
Pre-Covid, I had gone to the biggest game conventions in the US for 10 yrs in a row.
So you could say I’m a nerd. I’ve noticed a big overlap between CDs and nerds, probably due to the opportunity for escapism and examining/reinventing yourself.
