What I love:

* Stupid party games

* 18xx

* Trick taking games

* Word games

* Travel games. As a kid, I learned how to play Backgammon with a cheap, magnetic version I bought from Woolco. My sister and I played it a lot in the back seat of the Skylark; we managed to figure out basic strategy on our own.

* Dexterity games, especially full body dexterity games. Imagine a world where it was socially acceptable for adults to play Twister in a non-ironic, non-sexual, non-drunken way.

* Old school Ameritrash; in other words, Ameritrash published before Settlers of Catan -- pre-Settlers games.

* Wargames that are about conflicts that have taken place on Canadian soil or the American Civil War

What I don't:

* Euros: Short Euros are barely tolerable. Euros that last more than three hours are inexcusable.

* Fantasy Flight Ameritrash.

* Deck building games, including both CCGs and expandable non-CGGs.

* Cube pushing, VP engine games

* Anything involving making powerful combos. I think the current gaming market should stop catering to recovering Magic: The Gathering addicts.

* Abstracts. I do love abstracts, in an abstract way. But I don't like the dead silence that surrounds you when you play them.

* Long, 4+ hour games. I simply don't have the time anymore. 18xx is usually an exception.

* Bluffing games. I overplayed Liar's Dice as a kid.
