Oh Hi Marc
Moved to Seattle in December 2007. Former resident of Ann Arbor, MI, and Charlotte, NC. Father of one adorable girl, husband to a wife who loves games.
I use the BGG ratings recommendations as much as possible, and I explain my ratings where they deviate from that guide.
Personal Top 10 are the best games I've played thus far (meaning that I don't necessarily own all of them). Hot 10 are games I'm very interested in trying or acquiring, and are in no particular order.
Both Top 10 lists are horribly dated at this point. I will get on that soon.
