I like to play games. I bet you do too.
I enjoy playing games for the experience. I am not prone to AP! I rather just play and see what happens than analyze every nuance on my turn. I always try to understand the game and win, but assume that I will lose horribly when playing something new (and often times old).
I find it fascinating what people like about games and draws them to prefer one over another.
I could not care less about theme. Sure, some appeal to me more than others but I will never refuse to play a game based on theme. There are not any particular mechanics that I love or hate. It just depends on how a game combines them. I'll try any game at least once!
I am not a collector but love having a varied collection for different players and circumstances. Let's be honest, most games are just okay; so, I try to keep only the better-than-okay ones on my shelves, be it long brain-burners or quick and light fillers.
My tastes in games are continually changing. I like to think they're becoming more refined. I have gone from being completely uninterested in train games to rather enjoying them and wanting to try more. I am not a wargamer, but maybe I will play that one game in the future that completely turns my interest around.
I try to not be part of the Cult of the New, but sometimes the new and shiny things are too enticing to pass up!Thanks, Secret Santa 2010!Thanks, Secret Santa 2011!Thanks, Secret Santa 2012!Thanks, Secret Santa 2013!

rating system and may one day change my ratings accordingly.
My Hot 10 are games I am most interesting in buying/trying. My Top 10 are games from my collection that I have been really enjoying and/or want to hit the table for more plays.Since April 1, 2011.Since April 6, 2011.
