"It's not hard to design a game that works, the real challenge is making one that people want to play again and again."--Martin Wallace
mbmbmbmbmb
My home at BGG is in the Swedish Meatballs GCL. I don't read much else, honestly.

I'm afraid I'm not a very good GeekBuddy since I do not rate games, I do not follow new games, I do not play very many games, and I do not try very many different kinds of games. I will comment on a game if I suspect I've played it enough to be able to speak or think quasi-intelligently about it.

I'll play (and enjoy) lots of different things, but my tastes run toward 18xx, Martin Wallace games, parasitic investment/train games (i.e., Winsome Games), perfect information abstracts, and card games. If I'm to play (and enjoy) a Euro, chances are very good it was designed by Knizia or some combo of Kramer/Kiesling.

I have a frequently-thought-about and infrequently updated BGG blog here, and this comment is fairly representative of my feelings on how the hobby fails to deal with its abundant sameness.

My username for most of the Internet is "Rare Vos," which I always thought meant "Sly Fox" in Flemish. An actual Flemish-speaking BGGer informs me that it's closer to "Weird Fox" than "Sly Fox," and this makes me very happy.
