This is my chance to convey something meaningful! Darn. Wasted it.
Dear Santas

Thanks for making 2015 Secret Santa a great one! You can find my thank you post regarding the AU/NZ exchange here, and the International one here!


Welcome to my page!

I'm an Australian geo-scientist (biostratigrapher, which is a type of palaeontologist) who loves boardgaming with my husband and friends. Our discovery of the wider world of boardgames started around Easter 2009. We had 10 days off work and headed off on a road trip, only to have our car brake down in our driveway. We decided to buy a boardgame to fill in our free time so went to a game store to buy Scrabble and picked Ticket to Ride as well just because the box looked cool. We've never looked back since!

Once the collection grew too big for the shelf in the linen closet, my husband built us some shelves on which to proudly display the games in the loungeroom...This is the collection in February 2011

And again in February 2014....

Games in my "Want to Buy" list are actually the expansions, promos and PnPs that I own. I found that these games were misleadingly inflating my number of owned games, so I moved them to this category that I wasn't using anyway. Games in my 'Want to Play' list are unplayed games in my collection.

My Geekbadge says "gamer girl" in latin, because I like latin (and games...and purple). I like to play with blue, unless there's purple available and I play to play not to win. (If I played to win I think I'd be bitter and twisted by now with all my losses, but since I never expect to win, it's always a pleasant surprise when I do happen to pull out an ass-whooping.) I love a good box insert and tend to be a reductionist bagger when the box insert proves lacking.

I do a lot of 2-player gaming with my husband, though I also play multi-player games with local Canberra gamers and with a casual game group I run at my work. I like pretty much all types of games, but some of my favourites are Strategic Euros like Reef Encounter and Agricola. I do find though, that I tend to get in more playtime with lighter games like Ticket to Ride, Survive: Escape from Atlantis! or The Downfall of Pompeii. I also really enjoy some abstract strategy games like Samurai, Hey, That's My Fish!, GIPF and Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War. Plus, lately I've also been really enjoying more thematic games like Fortune and Glory: The Cliffhanger Game and Merchants & like I said, I seem to enjoy just about everything! I really like strategic games but also enjoy randomness so long as it's fun!

My Top Ten shows my highest rated games while my Hot Ten is usually ranked by number of plays during the previous month, with ties ordered as new-to-me games first, then in order of my inclination to play them again.
