What type of games do I like?
I still think of myself as a wargamer, but I enjoy all kinds of games. I'm especially partial to the following:
1. games that cover my favorite historical time periods (especially those that teach me something about the time period)
2. empire-building games (with technology trees)
3. games that can be played in 45 minutes and don't require any trips to the rulebook (because sometimes I'm too tired to play anything long or complicated)
4. cooperative games (because sometimes you just don't feel like fighting against your friends)How did I get into gaming?

.How do I pick my "10" lists?
My Top 10 list gives the ten games that I currently have rated the highest. The Hot 10 list gives the games that I'm currently playing the most (or thinking about playing the most).
A game in the Top-10, but not the Hot-10 is one that I love, but that hasn't made it to the table lately. A game on the Hot-10, but not the Top-10, is a game that I'm playing a lot, but I wouldn't put into the "Hall of Fame" (at least not yet).
