Dear Santa, THANK YOU!. (I also made the two items below that one.)
My SS wanted to know about my gaming habits. But I decided to keep this here anyway as it seems like good profile info.
I am holding two game nights per month. One with a focus on party games (Codenames, Two Rooms and a Boom, Dixit, Portrayal, etc) and one on more strategic games (Ticket to Ride, Dominion, Acquire, Ra). I play deeper games when I can (Agricola, and other long games).
In addition, I play a lot with my son (8), mostly Battlelore lately. He's starting to explore some of the classics, too. (Battleship and the like.) I also play with my daughter (13) when she doesn't have too much homework. We've been playing a lot of Hanabi lately. As for my wife we don't play a lot, unfortunately. She'll play with us when we play Fluxx, Codenames, Ticket to Ride, or Settlers.
I play Pandemic (lately Pandemic Legacy) almost every day at lunch. We don't branch out much there.
I LOVE abstracts, but mostly I find people onsie, twosie to play with as the person I used to play with multiple times per week left town. I'm still hunting for a replacement for him, but so far, no luck. I hope to find someone of comparable skill and enthusiasm for abstracts so I can get back into playing them more often.
So pretty much, I'm a polygamer. I play anything.
I'll play almost any game. I love new. That doesn't just mean new games, it also means new strategies to old games. My favorite genre of games is Abstract Strategy, but it's hard to find opponents who love them as much as I do.
