My ratings are fluid and subject to change at any time. Thus, I'm likely to rate a game after only a single play. I'll try to note this in the comments.

My Hot 10 are the games I've played the most in the last three months. I update this on or around the first of each month.

I keep my collection, trades, and wishlist up to date.

If I've added you as a GeekBuddy and you're wonderning why, it may be because we have a lot of similarly rated games according to this really interesting tool. You must have very good taste

In addition to Board gaming, many of my other activities are sponsored by the letter B.

Biology - I'm a post-doc studying ecology and evolutionmb

Bluegrass - I'm a mandolin player whistle

Beer - I brew my own. Belgian ales are some of my favorites

Birding - A relatively new hobby for me; I've been keeping a list since 2010. As of Jan 2013, I've passed 400 species on my life list
