That tickles!

I have been playing modern boardgames for many years after playing ticket to ride with family. I grew up playing many old style non- euro games with my family (which we still do every time we get together). I am a retired magic player from my university days and occasional video game enthusiast.

I'm a thirty something year old Londoner, happily married to a non-geek.

I can be found gaming at London on Board on Various nights.

I like games with lots of interaction, that look pretty and are pleasingly thematic. I also like Euro games (but only the good ones!)

Things that I enjoy in a game:
Original designs from Japan
Trick taking (with a twist)
Good graphic design
An interesting theme
Player interaction
Variable player powers and asymmetrical games
Network Building
Card play
Historical games

Turn offs:
Multi-player Solitaire
Plain looks
Pasted on or boiled down themes *Shakes fist at Knizia*
Games that knock you out in the first round, then make you hang around until the end of the game with no chance of victory.
AP prone players *If you are I will likely not play a game with you more than once* robot
Shipping goods in the Mediterranean *yawn*
Brown graphic design *CoughAleaCough*
Multiple paths to victory that are actually just the same way to win with slightly different clothes on

I do trade, but i'm primarily interested in English or international editions only.
