You can deny seriousness, but not play.
-- Johan Huizinga, Homo Ludens

In the late 1970's I started as a grognard. Anzio was my first hobby game, and the height of that period was Seekrieg (Fourth Edition). I took about 15 years out of the hobby, and then cultivated an interest in Eurogaming.

During that time off, I got into the Society for Creative Anachronism, in which I've studied and learned to loved historical games, esp. Tables (the whole family of games of which Backgammon is the descendant) and card games, esp. those played with Tarot, German, and Italian decks. I'm not really sure why, but in my mind I separate my modern hobby gaming from historical gaming.

On the off chance anyone's curious about my ratings -- I've only rated games I own, and I won't rate a game I haven't played (tho the plays may not be logged, having come before I joined the Geek). I take price, shelf space and play space into account when rating -- if a game has an epic price and takes up epic space, it had better be epic!

10 is reserved for the mythical perfect game that could not possibly be improved. My default would be a 5, but thanks to the Geek and knowledgeable friends and FLGS, I rarely end up buying or playing a game that would I rate that low.
