Monopoly Deal is a much better game than Monopoly. I never much enjoyed Monopoly, even the Sweedish Monopol that my dad brought back from a business trip (It sure was harder to understand).

As a kid, my favorite games were The aMAZEing Labyrinth, Enchanted Forest, and Skip-Bo. Although having an older sister, I was forced to suffer through too many games of The Babysitters Club Game and Sweet Valley High. I don't think it damaged me too much though.

Growing up I played Magic: The Gathering, Warhammer 40,000 (2nd Ed), and Warhammer Fantasy Battle (3rd Ed). I had Necromunda as well, but I regret not being able to play it more.

After I graduated from college, I was at a camp and my friend Pat introduced me to Carcassonne. Actually played it with a French friend who actually used to give tours in Carcassonne. At the camp, a German girl had brought Niagara. Whatever this Spiel des Jahres thing was, it was awesome. From then, I got exposed to some of the "pop-classics" like The Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride. I started collecting games, and going through phases of playing them often and not.

I realized there are some clunkers. Merchants of Amsterdam was not so impressive for me.

Some games I've picked up and enjoyed in the last year:
Bang!
Dixit
Dominion

I'd really like to get back into a non-expensive form of wargaming such as De Bellis Antiquitatis, Hordes of the Things, and Full Thrust. If anyone in the area wants to play, I'd love to!
