Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
I've enjoyed boardgames since I was a kid. I remember playing Acquire with my parents quite a few times (apparently I would always come in second out of three). We played a lot of games when I was growing up (Risk comes to mind), but I don't remember gaming much during college--how did I waste such prime gaming time? After college, my brother and I got back in to SWCCG (this was in 2003, when it was out of print and super cheap on eBay!), and in the following years I even taught my boyfriend (now husband) to play--what a guy to learn all the rules in SWCCG! laugh

My husband and I got into boardgames in a big way in mid-2006, when we discovered Travel Blokus, then Ingenious, and were then given Puerto Rico for Christmas. Around that time, when I started using BGG, I thought I'd be a straight-up Eurogamer, since I still loved Acquire and instantly enjoyed Puerto Rico. Now I'm seeing I enjoy Ameritrash as well...as evidenced by my owning a massive amount of HeroScape sets. So I like both the Euros and the Ameritrash; not a big Wargamer or Abstract fan, though.

I mostly game with my husband. I can get him interested in most games I want to play, as long as they don't last longer than a couple hours or have ridiculously fiddly rules. laugh I also love to play with my family when I visit them or they visit me; we have very similar collections now (PR, Goa, BMC, TTR games, Acquire, Jambo, HeroScape...). I don't have a regular game group, but we do have some friends we like to game with, so while 2-player games dominate my playing, we now get to break out the 3- and 4-player games more regularly, which is fantastic. I've also started to play in monthly X-Wing tournaments, which is a lot of fun.

*As of mid-2011, my gaming stats went way down thanks to my little man! But he's well worth it. Now that little sister arrived in late 2013, my gaming stats took another big hit! We'll get them back up someday, though. The kids are getting bigger--someday we'll have more gaming buddies!

Ten Most Recent Plays

I use my own rating system on here: 10 is the best and 1 is the worst and they scale linearly in between. Just seems silly to rate a game based on how much I want to play it at any given moment (e.g., I love Blue Moon and think it's incredible, but after 600 plays it's not always at the top of my want-to-play list anymore). Most games that I rate below a "6" I try to cull from my collection.

Note: My Top Ten are my ten most-played game. My Hot Ten are the games that are hitting the table lately, or that I'm trying to get to the table.
