Along with the review/commentary I have a star rating that judges fun and fulfillment. Fun factor is the sheer enjoyment of the game. Some more contemplative games may have less stars here. The fulfillment factor is the judgement of depth and satisfaction from the combination of mechanics, decisions and even length of a game. My gaming is mostly 2 and 3 player with 4-6 player games about once a month.What I usually play :
Euro strategy : 50%
Family games/Card games : 30%
AT : 15%
Complex card games : 05%What I really enjoy :
Euro strategy : 35%
Family games/Card games : 25%
AT : 30%
Trick taking/complex card games : 10%Current game state:
I have reached a point where new game purchases are longed for but I know better. I hold back quite a bit. I do find myself getting older games but the new, shiny thing will always have an appeal. I'm trying to just play what I have. I calmed down a lot with the fever of acquiring and I knew it would happen eventually. It's nice. I think I turned away a lot of new gamers with my crazy passion for rules and new things. You can't make people like what you like. Luckily my wife is a kind person and partakes in my hobby with me.

As a kid I played some family board games. In 1986 my brother introduced D&D to a quiet 6th grader and it was down the rabbit hole from there. I played as many different RPG's as I could, designed quests and my own games. I played a lot of Fighting Fantasy and other books of that style. High school was filled mostly with trying out life and I forgot about the games.
While I was at college Magic came out and a roommate taught me the rules later in '96. My (future) wife and I played the heck out of Magic and everyone we knew for the next few years. There was another lull in gaming as I learned how to live an "adult" life. Sometime in 2009 my brother thought it would be cool to get my Dad a game called Settlers of Catan. He never played it until I came up and read the rules. It took one play and I was back in.
My buddy told me about BGG that he had heard about from a friend. He also told me of a store in town that only carries board games. What?! That store was Coolstuff and before long I had an acquisition disorder on an epic scale. I sold off my rare Magic cards to get boardgames. A boardgamer was born.My wife is my main gaming partner and she is awesome for that. My top 10 reflects mostly games we enjoy playing together. Overall it is a reflection of games I really have had good times with.Top 10:Unplayed or new:Ol' school RPG's:
