Enjoy lighter Euros, but rail against the cult of passive-aggressive economic/political simulations (accounting exercises) masquerading as a fun contest.

a great place to play new (or new-to-you) games of all kinds.Rating background info
I rate kid's games for their intended audience - not as an adult thinks kid's games should be.
I often rate through the lens of "how good is this game on a first or 2nd play" (i.e how good is the game to pick up and learn from). If you've played a game 20+ times, it's going to grow on you and have a higher rating - the better question is, how good was the game to start with that made you want to play it so much?Trades
: I prefer to group multiple games in trades, to not have shipping eat up any benefit of the trade (for both parties). Unfortunately, there aren't many people that have multiple games on both our lists.Hot 10 are the games I most want to try out/learn.
Casual RPG'er as well, from D&D 1E (blue and red book) thru 3.0/3.5 to Call of Chthulu, GURPS, Champions, etc.Actually registered sometime in 2001, despite the glitched date below.
Started consistently tracking games played Feb/2007
