***IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ANY TRADES FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME***
(Also I could be happy to sell items on my trade list if you make an offer - generally i only want to trade within the UK as internation postage is too pricy)
I play for the social aspect of enjoying an evening with friends and usually get together with a group most thursdays for beer, food, games & general stupidity and also play in an all together more pleasant atmosphere with my wife who is happy to play from time to time.
I am happy to play most types of games but find I enjoy games with more interaction and a healthy chunk of luck more than some of the too 'dry' euro type games around.
I live in the north west near Preston - If anyone else is in this area, drop me a line.
* The 'Top 10' are my favourites.
* The 'Hot 10' are my most recently acquired.
* To complete the picture here is the 'Hall of Shame' - 10 worst games I've played:
1. Ground Floor
- Inspired this list! So tedious.
- Ultimate cube shuffler.
3. Puzzle Strike
- Rip off 2 decent things to make 1 crappy one.
4. Sheriff of Nottingham
- Hardly a game. Pointless.
5. Planet Steam
- Wow! Utterly boring - what a waste of theme.
- Hey, lets just rip off every mechanic we can!
7. The Ares Project
- Horrible production, tedious game.
- Looked forward to this! - Hardly even a game...
9. Kaosball: The Fantasy Sport of Total Domination
- First added in a while. felt like a mess from start to finish. No one scored a point with that ball. No. One!
10. Space Empires: 4X
- A spreadsheet? Party time!
- This list is in no way fair (and won't be even the worst games that i have played) but just a list of games that have particularly annoyed me of late!!
