My tastes in boardgames vary. I enjoy many games from heavy euros to medium weight wargames. I have never ventured into the world of heavier war games, but would not be adverse to it.
My favorite games usually include some element of luck, but they also emphasize strategy.
I am a teacher, and my main purpose is playing games for entertainment. I do not need that much extracurricular brain-busting, so some of the meatier games are not as enjoyable for me. Dungeon crawls, 2-player games, card games, and rpg-type games are some of my faves.
I play regularly with the AZ Boardgamers on Fridays nights.
While not gaming, I sit around and try to convince my wife that buying more board games is a sound investment.
My Hot 10 List are the games I am most excited to get my hands on.
