Purchased around 05/23/13, making this roughly the 25th game I ever bought.

I played this a bunch on my iPhone before I bought it. I love the simplicity and beauty of the game, but have not been able to play the game in real life.

Update: Finally played a game live on 04/30/16, but it was still not my copy.

Goal: Play my own copy by the end of 2016.
Result: ??????

At #136, it's the first one that I could consider a "favorite".

Samurai has been a big hit with all my common gaming mates, namely my family and close friends.

I personally like the older edition with the finished, black figurines:

Opened once, but unplayed. RGG edition. One end of the box top is torn on both sides, making it swing loose. Otherwise great condition.

Totally overlooked this classic Knizia in our collection. I remembered this more for the cool bits than the tile-laying one does to get them in the first place! Japan map is truly unique as well.

I have quite a few geekbuddies but whatever

Summary of your gaming taste:
As an old-school Eurogamer I like the Knizia school of keeping things elegant and I don't think unnecessary complexity can make a game any better (quite the contrary). When I like a more complex game it's because I find it more fun than a usual, dry calculation Euro because of some fun and probably somewhat unusual, novel mechanism elements.

Seven games that, altogether, approximate where your gaming tastes lie:
Samurai is my favorite game for its great depths and elegance, yet it's not like most of the games I enjoy
Ticket to Ride is the family gaming experience that never fails to impress.
Terra Mystica is above the complexity level I like, yet the combination of the theme, map and interaction still make it a winner for me.
Artus is a Kiesling-kramer game, I like those, but it's unusual even for them. It is a numbers game (I have no problems with numbers games), it is unlike any other game I played (I prefer playing those!), it is very tense (I love tension) but AP can be a problem (and I have no AP problems - I don't like dry calculations for more than a minute or two) and it is rather tactical (which is fine for me).
Keltis: Neue Wege, Neue Ziele is my favorite version of the Keltis family. It is tricky and so tense that I keep laughing during game. It is also mean (the game is mean to me, not the other players) like Artus which is great.
TAMSK, the unofficial member of the GIPF family is my favorite of the family even though I like each. Strategy-wise this is the most shallow of them all but the way time is included as an important dimension to your decisions is wonderfully fun.
UGO! is just a fun and tricky card game that I include as one of the many fun and tricky card games I really enjoy.

Three popular/well-regarded games that you dislike:
Race for the Galaxy (but I like san Juan and really like Roll for the Galaxy!)
Nations (the most boring civ game I've ever played, too long for how un-thematic it is)
Vinhos (way too complex for the pleasure it offers)

Three unpopular/less-regarded games you like:

Times Square gets better and better with each play until you'll find how great it is - provided you find someone who is ready to join you on the journey.
RevoltaaA 5/15-minute-filler but tricky and fun.
Sudoku: Duell der Meister is the best Sudoku game out there. Not for those who are not Sudoku fans though.

Do you use the BGG Rating scale (roughly)?

Not really, although my ratings of games are rarely very far from the BGG rating and I use decimals - a game needs to be very good to reach 8 points, good to reach 7 and 6 is just about the lowest quality that I still would play if asked.
Also, I rate children's games according to what I think about them as children's games. In the comments I write 'Children's game rating' in these cases.

Do you write comments (with or without a rating)?
Most of the time, yes I do.

Do you rate games without playing them?
Nope.

Do you rate games after one play?
Yes I do.

Any else of note:
I try to enjoy any game I play and find the gameplay value in them. I rarely rate a game very low if it's a well-developed one, even if it's not really for me. But I note that in my comments.

Two days ago I picked up this for EUR 2.00 at the thrift store next door. Never played this one before but there must be a reason why it is on BGG rank 135. Probably I'll find out today.

The board is not drawn as a network, but it essentially is; each hex is an edge between two cities. When a city is surrounded (all edges are claimed), rewards go to the owner of the majority influence.

Tempo Control: certain 'fast' tokens can be played as extra plays on a turn.
