Hey, Santa!Merry Christmas!
I'm looking forward to my 4th year of participation in the BGG Secret Santa exchange. Let me tell you a little about myself.
I was introduced to what I consider "real" board games about 10 years ago by my friends. I consider "real" to be anything non-mainstream (i.e. Milton Bradley/Parker Brothers). As you can probably tell by my collection, I got hooked! I used to play frequently with my friends and family. Two years ago, I moved to the St. Louis suburbs to be near my sister's family and brought my game collection with me, so it still got plenty of playing time. Just a year later, my brother in law relocated for his job, so I have been left here alone. I love it, but my game collection has been gathering a little dust for the last year.
I love to add to my currently owned games when expansions and promos come out, even if they aren't currently getting play time. But my focus is on solitaire games right now - any games that can be solo'd. I live a very busy lifestyle - working almost 40 hrs/week at my full time job and usually adding about 20 hrs of side jobs to supplement my income, so I don't have as much time as I'd like to dedicate to gaming. But if I get a new solo-able game or expansion, I will definitely make sure not to ignore or neglect it!
I am open to almost anything, even things not on my list if something jumps out in your mind - just not zombies! I hate the zombie fad.
My Top 10 is my top rated individual games or game series (if the game has several expansions).
I use the Hot 10 to designate the 10 most recent games or game series I have played.
