My way of valuing games is the one true way!
"Yeah, well, you know, that's just like uh, your opinion, man"
Thank you to whomever gave me my citizenship stars. They are much appreciated!

I created a guild for the Gaming group I have been hosting since 2012: Redward's gaming meet up in Carrollton Texas

Hot Ten: If it's up to date then it lists the games I need to play more of soon.

Avatar: It was Gene Hackman and now it is Larry David. People who changed their avatar always annoyed me but now I am one of them. I needed a change, I guess.
--Temporarily set to my Spartan Medals. Trifecta completed!

My overtext's:
-What is best in Life? To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
-I live again.
-Just what is it that you want to do?
We wanna be free.
We wanna be free to do what we wanna do.
And we wanna play games.
And we wanna have a good time.
That's what we're gonna do.
We're gonna have a good time.
We're gonna have a party!
-When I get sad I stop being sad and be awesome instead, true story.
-"The days of me forgetting are over and the days of me remembering have just begun"
-The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

Weight Ratings:

Light: Love letter, No Thanks

Medium Heavy: Dungeon Lords, Caverna, Terra Mystica
Heavy: Mage Knight, Through the Ages, Roads and Boats

Rating system I am using for Medium-Heavy Games:

d10-1d10-0 One of the best games I have every played. I have/will own it and obsess over it for a long period of time. IOW: Pretty pretty pretty pretty good...
d10-9 This is a great game. I have/will own it and obsess over it briefly.
d10-8 'Twas a 10. Although, I play it much less I still respect it.
d10-7 'Twas an 9. Although, I play it much less I still respect it.
d10-6 This game is fine and good.
d10-5 I either find this game to be very meh (flawed but not overly painful) or I hate it but respect it as a fairly well made game.
d10-3 This is a bad game but I can imagine why others may appreciate it.
d10-1 I abhor this game and it is an abomination to me. It is poorly made crap. I don't understand why people would want to play this (other than perhaps nostalgia).

Rating system I am using for light game and kids games:

d10-9 One of the best light/kids games I have every played. I have/will own it and recommend it to others frequently it is basically perfect at what it does...
d10-7 I have few complaints about this. It is a very good light/kids game.
d10-5 'Twas a 7 or 9 but lost favor in my sight. I still see its value.
d10-3 This is a bad game even for a light game or a kids game. It offers little to nothing to adults or gamers.
d10-1 I abhor this game. This offers a truly dreadful experience. Even if it is short it is very painful to sit through.

What would my perfect Board Game look like?

It would...
d10-0d10-1...Be requested by my friends
d10-0d10-2...Play well as a 2 player and a multiplayer game
d10-0d10-3...Have meaningful decisions
d10-0d10-4...Have multiple paths to victory
d10-0d10-5...Have excellent/innovative mechanics
d10-0d10-6...Have high replayability
d10-0d10-7...Feel different and variable each game
d10-0d10-8...Not have direct conflict
d10-0d10-9...Not have targeted attacks if it's multiplayer shake
d10-1d10-0...Have some theme & high quality art & components
d10-1d10-1...Have a theme that's Postapocalyptic, Dark-Fantasy, or Civ building
d10-1d10-2...Use my favorite mechanics: Action Point Allowance, Hand Management, Open Card Drafting, and/or Tableau Building (no dice)
d10-1d10-3...Not be a co-op or use a cardboard AI to create challenge shake
d10-1d10-4...Have high quality expansions that don't create bloat
d10-1d10-5...Not have player elimination shake
d10-1d10-6...Allow me to observe why I won/lost so that I can improve
d10-1d10-7...Fill a niche that is different than other games
d10-1d10-8...Be both strategic & tactical but more tactical.
d10-1d10-9...Have a good cost/depth ratio. The cost in time, money, set-up/tear-down, upkeep during game, learning difficulty, table/collection space, etc should be worth it for how interesting the intellectual exercise is.
