We asked our Karl about his Star Likes and found out more about his Wargaming antics…
Name: Karl Barley
Job title: Exports Coordinator
A little bit about yourself…
I’m from East Hull; I have lived there most of my life and just bought a house there with my other half. I spend a lot of my time wargaming, gaming, and talking about games. I like to travel to tournaments around the country with friends, which is great way to meet new people and spend time with people you don’t see too often.
HULL: I’m very fond of my hometown, the people are great and the city itself is great, it’s got plenty to do and a rich history.
MUSIC: I don’t get to many venues but the live music is Hull is really good; the atmosphere is always fantastic.
HOBBY: Wargaming. I have become slightly addicted and now play more games than I probably have time for, and like all wargamers I have a pile of models that are unpainted.
FOOD: I could eat pizza every day of the week.
SHOW: A couple of years ago I saw Derren Brown at City Hall. It was an amazing show and I am hoping to go again.
BOOK: I’m currently working through the ‘Wheel of Time’ series, would highly recommend to anyone into fantasy novels.
SPORT: Rugby and Motorsports, I don’t follow as keenly as I’d like but I would always take the option.
And, finally, two questions to finish…
Which celebrity would you like to meet?
That would have to be Rik Mayall or Robin Williams. I’ve spent a long time enjoying their films and shows and would have loved the opportunity to thank them for all of the laughs.
The funniest things you’ve seen?
Al Murray at Hull City Hall; by the interval I was in pain from laughing so much.
Derren Brown, again at Hull City Hall. I never realised how funny he is. It doesn’t come across on TV and was a good surprise.
