Thanks for visiting my profile. I'm Shane, and I really, really like playing games. I also like learning games, teaching games, and buying games. I try to keep all my games played. If a game sits on my shelf without being played, I try not to hold on to it for too long. I want to be a game player primarily, and a game collector secondarily.

I've been a Wallace fan for a long time. I enjoy most of his designs, with a very few exceptions. Recently, I've come to love a few more designers, such as Vlaada Chvatil, Vital Lacerda, Stefan Feld, and a little it of Uwe.

My all-time favorite game was Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization until recently. It has since been passed up by...Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization. I play it continuously on boardgaming-online.com. If you're ever in the mood to play it--including those who want to learn it--I'm happy to oblige. See my Top 10 to know what else I like. I try and keep my profile up to date.

I enjoy keeping updated commentary on my game collection. Feel free to see what I have to say about my games. And feel free to add me as a GeekBuddy if you feel inclined to have a Euro gamer in your group.

While I strive to have good diversity in my collection, I tend to come back to a few preferences: heavy games, economic games, worker-placement games, and civilization games are the types of games that call my attention most. I'll choose a soul-less Euro over a clunky thematic game any time.

I hope that gives you a good idea of who I am and what kinds of gaming preferences I have so you can most utilize my contributions to your benefit!

Thanks for visiting, reading, and game on!

Shane Larsen
