Summary of your gaming taste: I chose PG for my picture because Tigris was taken above. I like heavy-ish Euros-to-light-wargames. I abhor anything coöperative, and the presence of orcs, elves or hit points will send me running for a solo title or a bookshelf. I have little time for most of the BGG Top 100: I rate them an average  5.2 . I've played 3 games in the BGG Top Ten and rate them all a  3 .

Ten games that, altogether, approximate where your gaming tastes lie:
San Juan is better than Puerto Rico.
Stone Age is better than Lords of Waterdeep.
Cuba Libre is better than both Cuba & Cuba Libres.
Cruel Necessity is the best solo game I know.
Hey, That's My Fish!, Quoridor, and Torres are gaming's royal abstract triumvirate.

Three popular/well-regarded games that you dislike:
 3 Agricola
 3 Dominion
 3 Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization

Three unpopular/less-regarded games you like:
Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot
Code 777
Any Adlung card game.

Do you use the BGG Rating scale (roughly)?
On the contrary, I use it quite strictly.
Do you write comments (with or without a rating)?
Almost always.
Do you rate games without playing them?
Never.
Do you rate games after one play?
Rarely.
Any else of note:
I am the reigning champion of the BGG Bad Power Grid Players' Group (but love it anyway). The same is true for Go. While I like Herr Dr's designs, most of my collection is either by Martin Wallace or a GMT title. I love Tom Vasel's reviews even though he's wrong about almost everything. Samo is my favourite BGG commenter even though he's wrong about almost everything.

This is the game that started me thinking about all those games that I've just not been able to get others to play. It's apparently a great game and one that I'd like to scratch off the list.

Power grid was up next. A few of our friends have never played this game before, so it was a good time to teach it. The game was going pretty smoothly until I realized I was falling behind on cities. By that time it was a little to late to make a push to catch up. I could've used one more two more turns to make a run at competing for the win.

Good Game

Winner: Brandon

 7   Animal Upon Animal x3
 7   A Fake Artist Goes to New York
 6   Splendor x2
 9   Power Grid

A few separate gaming occasions -with my family, Alexandra's college leaders, and a Thursday night meetup. Power Grid was probably the highlight, although the game was less competitive than usual -I grabbed 25 and 26 early on and nobody competed on resources, so I rode those along with a 7 I picked up later in the game to victory. Everyone else could have bought to 17 plant capacity, but they'd be unable to extend their network.

More plays of fake artist have left me a little less happy -I'd like to play instead of just being the moderator, and it seems like clues chosen need to be very general as it's otherwise very difficult for the fake artist to win. Perhaps it'll be better with the official scoring rules, but if not I'm considering lowering the rating as I think I'd rather play Spyfall.

Animal Upon Animal is still a lot of fun with the crocodile variant (treat it as a 1). Fantastic as a toy-like-object, as quick night-opener, to close of the night, or just between larger games.

After some lunch, we connected up with Brandon Kempf. His wife and daughters went swimming, so I grabbed a game I knew he had been wanting to play. Power Grid is on of my favorites (and I know this is a love or hate kind of thing, but I'm definitely on the love side) and I was excited to teach it to Alyson and Brandon.

Robert fell behind in the cities, but avoided all of us by going totally garbage. Alyson had the better board position, but her inexperience kept her from controlling the pace of the game. I was doing a fine job of that right up to the point where Brandon hoarded all the coal and I didn't have enough to power more than 9 cities one round - he powered 13 IIRC. As we headed to the finale, we both powered 16 cities, but he had a fair cash position over me that I couldn't overcome.

Having been "reawakened" to board games with things like Carcassonne, I rediscovered the LGS that had been around when I was a kid. During their big Christmas sale I saw this and had been told that this was a great game. Yes, it is a great game!! However, the rulebook leaves a bit to be desired as you begin to read through it the first time there is a lot to take in--remember, if you'd never seen something like this it would be overwhelming. I remember we had the board out, things set up, and the laptop on the kitchen table watching the overview of game play--having found the video from this game site called "Board Game Geek". It was well worth the effort!
