I am a married father of 3 living in Florida. I probably have a rather standard evolution as many others - played war games / D&D / Avalon Hill in middle and high school and then fell out of it. A few years ago a friend introduced us to Settlers and then discovered Ticket to Ride. Not very exciting I know, but got me on the path to other Euros. Have always enjoyed playing board games and card games of all types, as is our extended family. Now trying to pass the bug along to our children.
I have become quite an active trader here on the geek and have had quite a bit of success in the math trades. I probably trade more than I should given postage rates, but my wife doesn't mind the trades relative to the purchases! Hot 10 represents the games I would most like to receive in trade and most likely to favorably consider. Other games on my want list are not likely to garner much attention, but I try to respond to all serious inquiries.
