I started gaming as a kid, as many of us did, getting into wargames as a pre-teenager. Around 1995 I discovered German style games and started collecting whatever I could find (Modern Art was my first.) I coaxed several coworkers over to the house to try them and thus founded "The Kitchen Table Gamers". That was back in March, 1997. We used to meet every week, but we've found it more difficult as our children get older and our schedules fill up with family obligations. Still, we try to get together several times a year.

*********************************************************************

Why the strange game ratings? It's like this: I use a 5 point system rather than a 10 point system. Then, to make my system fit into the 'Geek's system, I double my rating.

Honestly, I think 10 points is too much granularity. Then, when you turn it into a 20 point system (by adding .5 to the mix) I get completely baffled. Can you really tell the difference between a 6.0 and a 6.5? If you can then you are a far, far better person than I.

Here's the system that I use:

1(2) = Poor game. I will not play it again.
2(4) = An inferior game. I won't choose it, but if someone is desperate to play, I can be talked into it.
3(6) = Good game. I will choose to play it occasionally and will play it if it's suggested
4(8) = Excellent game. I will play anytime and will often suggest it.
5(10) = Hall of Fame Game

So, what about those games that I rate a '1' here on the 'Geek? Well, that's a special spot I reserve for those games that I feel are truly horrible. Not a "I don't like this game" horrible, more like a "how, in the name of all things holy, did this drivel ever get published?" horrible. It's a very special place...
