I have been playing games since I was a teenager. After a long hiatus (college and first job), I got back to gaming thanks to Fumbbl, a website where you can play Blood Bowl online. I later discovered eurogames and have never looked back ever since.
I like my games confrontational and stressful instead of cooperative and relaxed. I also lean towards heavy games. In fact, any game under 60 minutes feels like a filler to me.
There used to be a time when I tried to game with my family, but nowadays I only play with other gamers, mainly in Club Dragón
, two gaming associations in Madrid.
I only sport one microbadge, created by out4blood
, a BGG user who passed away in late 2012. It helps me remember that we should live each day as best we can, to the fullest.Rating Scale
This is my rating scale (inspired by this thread
10: Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favorites.
9: Excellent game. Always a pleasure to play. Shines under most circumstances.
8: Very good game. Rarely disappoints me. High on my request/recommend list.
7: Good game. Usually willing to play. I might even request or recommend it.
6: OK game. Some fun or challenge at least. Enjoyable in the right circumstances.
5: Average game. I'm indifferent, but may be willing to play.
4: Below average game. I avoid playing and would need to be persuaded.
3: Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
2: Very poor game. I refuse to play this.
1: Dead game. Seriously negative entertainment value. Black Hole of Fun.Top 10 / Hot 10
