Committee Bio

Terry Chilvers

Terry took his first tentative steps into fandom in 1983 and began attending Swancons in 1986. He is a lifelong gamer who specialises in watching a winning position crumble in new and interesting ways. He is particularly keen on boardgames for children, print-and-play games, iOS boardgames and any game involving the Roman Empire.

Terry was the Gaming Coordinator for Contact: Swancon 2009 and is a founding member of the WA Boardgaming Association. When he’s not rolling dice or shuffling cards he enjoys comic books, space opera and quality TV crime series such as The Killing and The Wire.

Five Questions with Terry

1). What are you currently reading/watching/playing?

Ian Rankin’s Rebus novels, I’ve also gotten back into comics this year and among my favourites are Batgirl, Fatale and Saga. I’m playing a lot of boardgames with recent favourites being Monster Factory, X-Wing and the DC Hero Deckbuilder.

2). When did you start going to SwanCon? Do you have a favourite SwanCon memory or anecdote to share?

I first attended in 1986. My 1989 V for Vendetta costume was underappreciated. Lots of happy gaming memories.

3). Which areas of fandom are you most drawn to? Are there any other events or clubs in which you regularly take part?

I’m mostly a gamer now and attend WABA at least semi-regularly.

4). Who are you most looking forward to meeting at SwanCon 2013? Who would your ultimate dream guest be at a SwanCon?

My DAUGHTER is looking forward to meeting Gail Simone – she loves Black Canary. Dream guest would be Alan Moore – but he’d hate it, or Iain Banks – but he doesn’t fly, so I’ll pick Friedemann Friese

5). Desert island time – you can take one book, one comic, one movie, one TV show and one game with you. What do you pick?

Book: Last Dangerous Visions
Comic: the original Swamp Thing #88
Movie: Jodorowsky’s Dune
TV Show: Global Frequency – Season 1
Game: Poisson d’Avril
