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!

I prefer this 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.
