I am a dabbler in board games, with a special love for science fiction games. I enjoy highly-themed competitive games with lots of luck and risk management involved. I enjoy games that require trading and negotiating and tend to shy away from games that don't require much interaction.

I have a compulsion to evaluate and re-design rules, to come up with optional variants, and to speculate about how a game could be improved if *I* made the next edition.

I tend to favor games that are easy to teach, playable by 2 players, highly interactive, and somewhat thematic. I especially like fantasy and science fiction. I don't like "silly" or "wacky" humorous games like Munchkin or We Didn't Playtest This At All, but I do like tend to like more serious but cute/family themed games like Evo and Long Shot. I enjoy games that involve managing risks, such as games with cards and dice. I especially like card games for their portability (I like to carry my games with me) and expandability (I like to customize my games). I enjoy games that can be customized or have some kind of random setup. I don't like war games, heavy games, or things that always take more than 2 hours to play. 45-90 minutes is probably my ideal playing time. I prefer to collect games that can be tailored to multiple types of people and scale to different number of players, so I gravitate to co-ops (games like Pandemic) for that reason.




My Top 15 favorite games are:

BattleCON
Chaosmos
Innovation
Mage Wars
Battlestar Galactica
Dead of Winter
Eldritch Horror
Robinson Crusoe
Evolution
The Ares Project
Blood Bowl: Team Manager
Impulse
Star Realms
Settlers of Catan
Sentinels of the Multiverse
