Good questions!

Fave Theme: Sci-fi (currently a tie between space exploration and sinister cities of the future)

Fave Mechanic: Co-operative play

Least Fave Mechanic: Singing. Cranium sometimes requires players to sing (or whistle or hum) a song, and if they don't know the tune, they're just stuck.

Most Unique Game I Own: Dvorak (Paranoia deck). Dvorak is a print-and-play rule set for card games; it lets players alter the rules during play.

Eager to Own (scheduled for release) : Ra

Eager to Own (not scheduled for release) : MicroWorld (trading, building, war, multiple paths to victory -- all this in 90 minutes)

Underrated Game: Lord of the Rings

Fave Gaming Accessory: Card sleeves

Puerto Rico: a game I haven't played.

Fave Game (<30 ratings): Dvorak

1) Theme: No strong preference really (Pirates, Beans, Bunnies, whatever), but I tend to prefer SOME theme to pure abstracts for the most part (even if it's "pasted on").

2) Good Mechanics: Rule creation, variable/customizable player powers, simultaneous actions.

3) Bad Mechanics: Excessive Randomness, whatever it's form (e.g. Battle Masters). I don't mind randomness in general, but some games are just excessive.

4) Unique: Either Mao or Magic - The Gathering. Mao is always a new game every time we play, and Magic was the first CCG with tons of unique ideas (even if I haven't bought cards in 10 years, I still respect the game).

5) Want in Print: Caylus and Ca$h & Gun$.

6) Want out of Print: Survive!

7) Underrated: I could say Mao again, though it's understandable - because of the game's nature, some variants are inherently worse than others and can really put someone off the idea of the game. Other than that, maybe Junta or Momma Mia! are a little underrated, though not overly so.

8) Accessory: My box that lets me carry around 15+ (card) games easily, taking up about as much space as 2 normal-sized board game boxes. (I'm working on an ungraded box that'll have room for bits for some smaller board games like Bazaar to fit as well =D)

9) Puerto Rico: It's alright, but not amazing.

10) Best Low-plays: Cobras in the Cockpit and Crusoe's Planet.

Probably my single favourite mechanism is the decidedly positive sum Win by improving other player's game positions. KaiVai, for instance, does this wonderfully and this a pattern space that I've been concentrating on in my own games.
