...before I forget.

Thanks for stopping by my profile. I am just an average globe-trotting geek. I spend most of my free time trying to figure out how to squeeze a bit more gaming into each week. It's a hard-knock life.


What kind of games do I like?
I enjoy all kinds of games! What do I want to play right now? Well, that depends. What does everyone else want to play? Let's pick something everyone can enjoy and is excited about. Playing the right game with the right group makes for a beautiful experience. My favourite games often involve bluffing, deduction, negotiation, bidding or sharp tactics.

How do I rate games?
I rate games according to general game categories and overall merit for the game's intended play group (not only my own preference). I rate light games, kids games, heavy games, party games, etc. with their different design functions in mind. Games in each category have a real shot at getting a perfect ten from me (even if the path to that 'ten' is different for each). But obviously I am not entirely objective, and I have left myself some wiggle room. I use a 10-point scale and evaluate the games in the following way:

Fun/Enjoyment/Interest- 3/10
Did I have fun playing the game? Did others? Did we enjoy ourselves? Was it interesting?

Level of Engagement- 3/10
Did I care about my turns? Did I care about what the other players did? Did I care about what happened or how events unfolded?

Creativity and Reward - 3/10
Did the game offer real choices? Were there tactical/strategic choices that mattered? Does the game reward creativity and/or good play?

Wiggle Factor- 1/10
What other factors may contribute to this game's whole value? Does it speak to me? Will it speak to others?
