Board Games are great. Lets get together and play one! I like all types of games, I personally do not mind games with dice. I can play Doom and have as much fun playing that as I do playing Goa. I started out playing Monopoly, Sorry and Clue as a kid. My family played a lot of card games(Hearts, Canasta, Poker) too. I really got into Games Workshop(Blood Bowl, HeroQuest, Chainsaw Warriors, Warrior Knights, 40K, Fantasy) and D&D(and GammaWorld) as a teen. Played Shogun, Axis & Allies, and Titan. Got out of gaming for awhile, played only card games (with family on holidays)and Empire Builder. Got back in by getting hooked on Magic, but this led me to Civilization. My Magic group decided to play board games one Friday and we played this great game, it was a big hit, so we started meeting every couple weeks to play board games. The one game that I always played and still do is Strat-o-Matic Baseball, played since 1978. This game has always been fun for me to play. Got the Euro Game bug and have not looked back. I like adventure games and games that have an historical slant to them. PR, Goa, because I really like to imagine I am back in that time going through things the games bring up. Runebound, Arkham and Doom because there is action, adventure, fun. I like the fact board games bring people together to play and friendships are formed. I really think this is a great hobby and life skills are developed. I traveled to London on business, fellow Geeks said come over to play games, I ended up playiing 4 hours of games with people I just met in person and had a great time.
In 2006, I started a local game group, called Santa Clara Game Group. We meet on the 3rd Sunday of every month for 5 hours. This has been a good experience for me, and I think the group has done well. We have a yahoo group to keep people updated, and we had some posts here in the forums. We have played many Euros, and tried getting some RPG sessions started. A few kids have showed up and some newbies too. After just over a year I decided the group was just not working out, and Sunday afternoons were not the best time to hold a game group.

My Hot 10 are games I want to play or games I am playing right now.
