My gaming tastes are constantly evolving.

Present interests:

Wargames.

I like to play longer wargames by myself, but I don't particularly like solitaire wargames. I prefer to set up a game on my table and play both sides. Usually a game remains on my table for several weeks or even months. I like all periods of history, from Ancients up to World War 2. Tactical level games give me the most satisfaction as I enjoy seeing the effects of individual personalities. However, I also like operational and strategic games. I'm not a competitive wargamer. I prefer to sit back and watch the history unfold based on my decisions.

I love Richard Borg's Command & Colors games. I always play these opposed. They are fast and fun, and they do reward skillful play. Memoir '44 is my favorite because of the vast number of scenarios and terrain and the simplest set of rules.

Miniatures Games.

Skirmish games are my favorite. Again, I like to see the personalities come through. I prefer historical games, but here I can stomach some fantasy.

Eurogames.

I like eurogames without much luck. I'm not a big fan of chucking lots of dice or drawing random cards in this style of game. I feel like I've played enough light eurogames in my life, and don't need to play anymore. I love meatier games that make me rethink the whole game when they are over. For me, a well-designed, deep eurogame is the pinnacle of game design.

Party Games

Whether it's a deduction game, a bluffing game, a negotiation game, or a creative game, I like games that a

Not interested:

Block wargames.

These seem to come in two varieties -- long games that do not allow solitaire play and short games that are too competitive.

Ameritrash games.


Cooperative games.
