Hello and welcome to my profile.

I've been a gamer of one sort or another my entire life. When I was younger I mainly played video games, and my board game exposure was limited to mostly Risk and Monopoly. I found that I was always looking for ways to make those two games more interesting (adding extra rules, more pieces, etc.) but I didn't have the design capabilities to come up with anything very interesting.

I dabbled with D&D in high school, but never really found anyone to play with. An orphaned DM is a sad, sad thing. Nevertheless, I was content just to read through the rulebooks and imagine worlds and campaigns. I think I had more fun creating the worlds than I would have had DMing the game. High school was also when I was at my peak for video gaming playtime. I played mainly console games because my computer was pretty old, but I had a few older gems installed that I would always come back to.

Enter university. I stumbled across a group of friends that enjoyed games as much as I did and never looked back. We played endless hours of video games, had some D&D every once and a while and, finally, I purchased Settlers of Catan from my FLGS (I had been in before, but never bought anything). That game is what forever confirmed me as a board gamer. We played an innumerable amount through undergrad, and picked up new games every so often to add to the collection.

I play fewer games now than I used to because my time is less available. I have a pseudo-gamer girlfriend that enjoys some board games, but not video games. As a result, my video gaming has gone way down, but my board gaming has remained at a moderate level. I am really happy that I found this site, as it provides me with an amazing amount of information on games that are around.

My Top Ten:

My Top Ten list is a metric of my favourite games of all time. I only include “mature” games on my list – games that I have played enough times to establish a consistent opinion.

VGG Specific Information

There are a number of franchises/series with several games that I adore. On VGG, my Top Ten list is a combination of series/franchises that I love and individual games where the franchise/series either doesn't exist, or is a letdown compared to the individual game.

My Hot Ten:

My Hot Ten list is my list of games that I want to play right now. I try and update it approximately once a month, but I never know if that schedule will stick around. It combines games that I want to try as well as those that I am currently playing.
