I'm rather in a weird place because I'm definitely a board game geek, but I'm not to the level that most of you will be. I don't log my plays because I find it tedious. And I don't have a huge collection, nor will I. I make it out to game once or twice a month.
However, my tastes no longer fit with non-gamers, and when I play something, I want it to have some meat. Oh, whoa to the partial convert who is neither hot nor cold! I think there's something in Revelation 3 about needing to be spat out of someone's mouth.Hierarchy of a Perfect Boardgame:
