In fact, Trades of games for money are also welcome!
Feel free to offer me money for my "for trade" games, or feel free to offer to sell me a game on my wishlist (all sales must go through the BGG marketplace so they get their 3% commission). Trade proposals or geekmail are fine. For games I'm wiling to part with, my trade interest can usually (but not always) be inferred from the rating I have given. For games on my wishlist, I definitely want 1's and 2's, but 3's and 4's are going to have to be a good deal to tempt me.
I record all plays, usually with a mini session report. I also tend to have extensive mini-review-like comments about each rated game. Feel free to geekmail me any questions about my game ratings or comments. My "Hot 10" are games that I am most looking forward to trying, or which I have only played a bit and want to play more.
My proudest BGG achievement is PeakHope's comprehensive list of purely cooperative games
My Gaming History:
We had hundreds of board games when I was growing up, including several that were extremely obscure. I almost got into wargames, but they were too tedious (plus I'm a pacifist in real life). I got away from boardgames as a teen. Then D&D (1st Ed) was a big hit for a couple years, but the roleplaying became less fun, and being or finding a DM was difficult. D&D is responsible for my love of fantasy dungeon crawls.
Wizardry on a PC in 1984 was probably my favorite game of all time. It has set my expectations for all future dungeon crawls. Over the years, I have tried to create my own computer dungeon crawl about five times. At some point I pretty much gave up playing computer games, and for that matter pretty much got out of board games too.
In 2010, I got back into board games, along with my wife. My preference is lighter-medium games (weight 1.5-2.8) with at least some theme, and minimal direct player vs. player attacks. Cooperative games are great.
Here are the most recent games I have played:
