***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.
2. Merkator - Ultimate cube shuffler.
3. Puzzle Strike - Rip off 2 decent things to make 1 crappy one.
4. Bushido: Der Weg des Kriegers - 4 hours - didn't get a turn. Seriously.
5. Planet Steam - Wow! Utterly boring - what a waste of theme.
6. Vinhos - Hey, lets just rip off every mechanic we can!
7. The Ares Project - Horrible production, tedious game.
8. Yomi - 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!!

New years resolution for 2014: Finish the year with LESS games than i started it with!! (started with 160) ***DONE*** - Finished with 152!
New years resolution for 2015: Keep below 160 games. 90% of all games played at least 3 times.

Here are a couple of music related lists i created:
The Albums of Bob Dylan
The Albums of Bruce Springsteen
The Albums of The Clash
The Albums of The Wu-Tang Clan
Post The Band You Play In - oh, you can find my band here
