Traders/Sellers: I am open to any and all trade/sale offers- I usually want to trade more than 1 game at a time, exceptions from time to time of course. If we make a deal, I will not accept shipping from sources other than regular mail. I only ship using regular mail. Please value used games accordingly for customs, either what I paid or for trades the used value of opened games.

10% of all net proceeds from my auctions will be donated to the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund for their support of the community. As of today $535.68 raised for this wonderful cause. More to come.



How I Rate Games

= Love it, will always play if I have the time.
= Loveable go to game, always ready to suggest it.
= Like it a lot and willing to play it a lot.
= Like it, usually happy to play unless I've played too much lately.
= Don't mind it, but usually prefer something else.
= Not a fan, will occasionally play for the sake of others.
= Dislike it, won't play if I have the slightest choice.
= Hate it, not worth the time, effort, or the feeling of being violated.
= Pile of monkey poo, can't be bothered to finish a 'game'.

I have been a good little gamer, I played many games and tried to introduce as many new gamers to the hobby. I'm an old school gamer that also likes Eurogames on occasion, a combination of both is nice, but my Wishlist gives you some hints. I'm easy to please as I like many things.

I prefer numerical quantity over quality, so I'm as good with 2 playable used games as 1 new game- but that's mainly because I like to make sure used games have a home than anything else. A huge giant coffin box of a game is as nice as a small (even single piece!) hard to get expansion for a game I really like. I prefer longer more epic games even though they don't get as much play as the shorter games, overall I prefer substance over style, mechanics over theme, an equal mix is more than fine.

I keep my wishlist updated throughout the year, so don't worry about that. However, don't feel you need to get something from my wishlist, use it as a guide as well as the games in my collection for what I like, my collection list is also up to date. Here's how I generally look at my wishlist;

1 (Must Have)-- Games that I'll be buying after the holidays, I'm going to own them eventually- I hope. Maybe you think that makes a good gift!

2 (Love to Have)-- I'll likely end up getting these someday, just not right away, it might be months or weeks, it depends on when I first feel I want to play it next.

3 (Like to Have)-- These are basically almost as desireable as above, however I'd rather not buy them, more than likely will trade for them, so that might make them good gifts- or not!

4 (Thinking About)-- This is stuff I am just not sure about, oh I want them I think but- I just haven't taken enough time to decide on how badly. Often games I see that I want that aren't released hit this section, mostly it's games that are a bit pricey and I don't know when they'll fit the budget- if you wanted to get me something from here, it might take a little more effort on your part and/or cutbacks to Elf wages!

5 (Don't Buy This)-- For whatever reason, this game has moved down the list until it ends up here. Reasons could be that I think someone is buying it as a gift, there's a trade/sale in progress that might obtain it, I can't decide if I want it, or that I think I might break down and buy it before the holidays are over.

Thank you for being a Santa, because it's awesome. I'm really happy to be a part of a community where this is possible. I look forward to whatever efforts you send my way!

Thank you again!! meeple
