On Boardgamegeek, I find myself predominately researching games, locating trades, keeping up-to-date and (hopefully) thoughtful comments, and posting the occasional rules summary. Regarding my game collection, I'm trying to choose games that have novel mechanics and that can please a range of ages, from nongamer to heavy gamer.

Regarding game ratings and comments, I keep my ratings up to date, and I will post my changes in opinion as my feelings evolve about these games over time. I'm trying to follow a new rating system proposed by the BGG admins:

10--Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favorites.
9--Excellent game. Always a pleasure to play. Shines under most circumstances.
8--Very good game. Rarely disappoints me. High on my request/recommend list.
7--Good game. Usually willing to play. I might even request or recommend it.
6--OK game. Some fun or challenge at least. Enjoyable in the right circumstances.
5--Average game. I'm indifferent, but may be willing to play.
4--Below average game. I avoid playing and would need to be persuaded.
3--Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
2--Yery poor game. I refuse to play this.
1--Dead game. Seriously negative entertainment value. Black Hole of Fun.

My "top ten" are those games that I feel are simply the best. My "hot ten" are the games I own that I'm most itching to get on the table and share with other people.
