I have always been interested in playing board games. Growing-up I played all kinds of games, mostly abstract as that is what my dad enjoys: chess, go, backgammon, Pente, Twixt. In addition, we had your standard roll-and-move fare: Monopoly, Sorry, Careers. When I went to college, I was introduced to what is now referred to as Ameritrash: Axis and Allies, Mutant Chronicles. But my love at the time was Magic the Gathering. I sunk a bunch of money into that game. Didn't get any better at it, but sure had fun along the way. Since then I have sold my collection - twice.

After I got married, there was a store that sold "designer" games that I frequented and often pined over the games: Settlers, Caracassone, Samurai. I bought Tikal there for half price. Read the rules, played solitaire, but my wife was not interested. My interest waned, but didn't disappear.

Then one day a package from my brother-in-law arrived on our front door-step. It was Ticket to Ride: Marklin edition. He mentioned this site and then the flood gates opened.

My collection has had titles changed as I have tried to figure out what will be played by my family, mostly my wife.

I am the creator of the PitchCar TrackBuilder. This utility will allow you to build different PitchCar layouts and determine if they will fit on your table.

On BGG, my hot ten are the last ten games I have played. My top ten, are my favorite games of the moment.
