My avatar is a small portion of a painting by Clyfford Still, one of my favorite artists. It is from his work "Untitled (PH-118), 1947." My Geekbadge
What can I say, I just don't dig classic Meeples. The look of them really does give me the Willies.
When I first joined BGG, I began researching the different types of mechanics in games. My goal was to try to obtain titles that had different mechanics from one another so I could build a well-rounded collection. When I researched "tile-laying" games, I discovered Carcassonne
and saw that it was highly ranked and loved by couples and women. I thought I'd found something wonderful that my wife and I would enjoy playing, but then, when I started looking at the photos of the game and saw those Meeples, boy did I get turned off. Metro
quickly became the tile laying title I added to my collection and I've never looked back.
My Top 10 are my current favorite games, while My Hot 10 are the games that I most want to get a chance to play.
