I have been gaming since the early 70's, which still doesn't make me THAT old. I live in Connecticut with my beautiful wife and equally beautiful daughter. I work as a dealer at Foxwoods Resort Casino, and no, I do not consider gambling to be a game.
My favorite game is Cosmic Encounter, and has been pretty much from the time it was released in 1979. It is the only game of which I have three different deditions. I have my original Eon with all expansions, I have Mayfair's version with More Cosmic as well, and I have the Avalon Hill version with its bizarre choices of components.
I tend to prefer heavier Eur-styled games. I like games such as Princes of Florence, Caylus, and Puerto Rico, while I also retain a soft spot for quick fillers. I don't care for wargames at all. My taste is more for games that are both mentally involving and actively social.
