I always enjoyed playing boardgames. When I was little I always looked forward to a new game or two at Christmas. Before we had kids we would get couples together on Saturday nights and play party games. A few years ago discovered "euro" games by being introduced to Settlers of Catan. Lucky for me I lived in Germany for five years so I was able to easily amass my collection. I recently moved back to Canada (Kingston, Ontario) with my husband and 2 kids and can now enjoy playing games with family and old friends again. I really like to play strategic games with people who play to win. I also enjoy family strategy games with the kids. Hubby is a good opponent for the two player games although he's not as crazy about gaming as I am. (He'd rather be sailing.) Concerning my Top 10 list: This is constantly in flux as I have so many games I enjoy depending on the mood and the crowd. These are just 10 of the games I would gladly play almost any time.
Update 2013: Most likely moving back to Germany this summer, so have decided to sell much of my collection, just keeping my favs and the ones that hit the table the most. The games I have for sale are listed as for trade and the price is in the comment area.
