Dear Santa!

I'm sorry for not posting sooner, I did your your gifts! THANK YOU!!! I've been super busy and haven't had time to mess too much with my profile and such. I hope to take pictures of my gifts and post them! But we'll see how it goes. In any event, thank you so much! We look forward to playing TIME Stories!

Santa!

I just got your geekmail! I'm excited! BGG was a lot of fun. Did you go? I didn't see anyone is a big red suit so I'm guessing not. My wishlist is pretty up-to-date at the moment. I'll add things to it now and again as I think about it, but I'd be happy with anything on it at this point! I use the rankings as one would expect, 1 is most wanted through 3, 4 is not just yet, 5 is not at all. I have mostly 3s which are mostly games I'd like to own based on a few things I've read or the fact that I like the designer - but I've never played them or even really know what they're like.

As to your questions:

What is your favorite game at the moment?
I've had a soft spot for a few favorites for a while. Arkham Horror and Trajan I think top the list. A current new fave is Dark Moon after a single play (we'll see how it goes from here...). I'm a fan of smart euros, but lately I've been leaning more towards story, exploration, immersion, characters I can own and level etc. (though I'm not a role player), generally more thematic stuff where I just chuck some dice and don't have to think too hard. Just realized you only asked me what my favorite game is at the moment. Think I've answered that? I do tend to go on, sorry...

What is your wife's favorite game?
She and I have Arkham in common as our favorite. She also loves Small World, though I'm not a huge fan myself. She doesn't like "my guys v. your guys" games that much, at least she says she doesn't, but whenever we play one she destroys me at them. I think the factions are what she likes most about Small World- they're just fantasy enough without being too serious.

Have you searched for any local board game meetups? I recently moved, and I found a lot of friends by attending local meetups.
I am aware of one or two that I haven't been able to visit yet. I'm also trying to start my own of sorts at my apartment complex. Hopefully I'll make more progress on that after the holidays.

Do you care if the items inside the box are wrapped or not?
Nope! That gift wrap would be coming off after about 5 seconds anyway, so don't worry about that! haha

Thanks for being my Santa! Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa!

Hello! Wow, has it been a year already?! How have you been? Life's been crazy for me. I got a new job, moved to a new city, big ol' changes. But enough of that!

I have been working on my wishlist for you! I am open to things that fall outside my wishlist though. I play games most often nowadays with my wife (2p) since we've recently moved and don't know many people in our new town yet. We are however trying to push a couple people that we've met here over the gaming edge! We introduced them to Mission Red Planet for instance and they loved it! So I've been keeping my eye out lately for low- to mid-weight games that we can play with them. Aside from all that, like I said my wishlist is up to date and my collection is complete in my profile with most things I've played being rated and commented for an idea of who I am gamer-wise.

Thanks for being my Santa! Merry Christmas!

I've been gaming for a few years now and have been developing my tastes. I really enjoy games of all kinds, but my favorites seem to be euros, co-ops, civs, and epics. I'm a big fan of components- the more pieces to look at and move around the better! I'm not so big on card-only games, though there are a few I do like (and some quite a bit). I don't Deck Builders so much, but better put it seems to me that I don't like games where the point is to use some mechanic to gain cards into your hand or deck, and at the end of the game the one who was able to gather the best cards wins. Give me pieces along with the cards and let me move around a map and make movement decisions and stuff! Awesome sauce.
