I've been a gamer all my life, jumping into "serious" games with Decipher's Star Wars CCG in 1997. In 2007 I was introduced to the wider world of strategy board games. Since 2007 my tastes have evolved rapidly. I consider myself a heavy strategy gamer: leaning toward 18xx, Winsome-style games, heavy Euros, wargames, and abstracts. I also like many card games.
My top 10 is my current favorite games (I would likely give different answers on different days, so don't read into it too much). My hot 10 lists unplayed games I am eager to try.
