A bit about me and gaming
I first got hooked on gaming via the original D&D Red Box in the early eighties. For the next decade or so me and a group of friends would regularly meet at my Grandparents on a Saturday for all-day sessions of all sorts of different RPGs (AD&D 2nd ed., Call of Cthulhu, Paranoia, Traveller, Pendragaon, Stormbringer, Feng Shui, Vampire and WHFRP were all favourites).
Boardgames figured only a little, usually if we were missing a GM, but included the likes of Warrior Knights
, Awful Green Things from Outer Space
, Car Wars
, Imperium Romanum II
and Dark Future
My old games have been languishing in boxes somwhere in the darkest recesses of my garage for years now, but those dormant gamer genes were somehow reactivated when I stumbled across BGG a little while ago.
The majority of my gaming is with the Missus, so that tends to mean we play shorter, less heavy games as a rule. I've introduced a few of my lapsed-gamer friends to Dominion, Pandemic and a Touch of Evil and they really enjoyed them - the only problem is that we rarely get the time to get together for long enough to make organsing a regular gaming night
There are a few active gaming groups that meet regularly in my area so I'm planning to drop into one soon!Games recently playedMy Favourite 10 games
This is a straightforward 1-10 ranking of my favourite played games. Of course, the entirety of my collection isn't much more than ten games at present, but I'm working on that...Current Hot 10 Games
I'm using the 'Hot 10' list to show which games have my interest right now. These aren't necessarily games that I own, or have even played, but I'm interested in finding out more about them or thinking about purchasing.
