Hi there, my name is Neil Edge...this is my profile but you knew that already.

I blog occasionally here on BGG. I call it For Whom the Die Rolls. You can read it if you want.

After years of considering it and watching board game video "shows" I've taken the plunge and started my own. It's a fledgling little show that I will be adding to with time and ambition. I have a Subscription Listfor it if you want to follow that as well as a FaceBook Page


I have started writing a blog that is probably the most telling thing about my life. Certainly what I write about is the most important thing in my life, my girlfriend. If you are interested in our struggles to live a normal life while gripped in the clutches of a mental disorder you can head over to my blog and read there. http://didiotblog.wordpress.com

◄►◄►◄►◄►◄►◄►◄► A Note To Traders ◄►◄►◄►◄►◄►◄►◄►◄►

I greatly prefer to do larger multi-game trades. It makes sense with shipping costs being high these days we both get the most bang for our postage bucks! If we both get a big box with several games in it we'll both be happier with the trade. Yes it does make working the trade out a bit more difficult (so we have to write a few more geekmails) but the end trade is more satisfactory.

Now of course if you are fairly local and want to trade in person...that's another story.

A Bit about 2 Player Games


I know there are a lot of "2 Player" geeklists and now the polls on individual game entries. Still I find I like to go with people's opinions on things especially those I typically agree with their opinions on anyway. So I've developed the above 2 images which I will apply to some of my game ratings. These images will only be applied to games that list themselves as 2 or MORE players. I've often found that games that say they can hold 2 players really shouldn't and it was just a way for the company to sell more units. As I play 2 player games frequently this is a big deal to me maybe it is to you as well. These images are a quick way of getting my opinion on if a game plays well with 2 even though it's usually played with more.

The following is a geeklist with all my 2 player thumbed games compiled.

FYI, My "Hot" and "Top" 10 games are all games that I am very interested in trying out as I've not yet played them.
