2 Years ago today I became a 'real' member of the bgg community. Here is a rundown of what I have done and lead me to this day.

My collection has ballooned to over 50 games (excluding expansions) I have slowed my acquisitions because I want a play my games. If I find I do not want to play them anymore or can't play them I will trade them.

EDIT: 50 is a lot for me I am running out of space

I have contributed in the community, I am a supporter (if only for addblock) and have tried to give back when I can. I ran a geeklist lottery to give new users a chance to win an avatar which was a total flop. I also have had several other geek list fails followed by some recent success.

Spices (in games) http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/53304/spices-in-games
though not the most thumbs it wasn't geekbombed with another done it item

Under appreciated comments http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/53249/underappreciated-com...
not many items but a reasonable amount of thumbs

and most recently
You know you are a bg geek when
http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/56847/you-know-you-are-a-b...
my most successful item generating 22 postings.

I have posted some files though the most downloaded ones are files that I converted to pdf or posted from other sources. I have created some tuckbox files including my most recent file for Frontline General Spearpoint 1943
http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/57577/tuckboxes-for-the-4-...
Which I will claim as an almost official file.

end of shameless plug

It truly is about the games though I have had some stinkers but I will talk about my favorites. A few of my favorites are my most recent games but my very favorite game is Combat Commander: Europe. I have said it is the only game that I have an urge to play even if I played it last night. I can not get enough of it. My other favorite games would be Agricola, Dominion, Race for the Galaxy and despite the comments about it Ticket to Ride (nordic)

Looking ahead I have not seen my interest in games waver. I tend to be a social gypsy and try a little of everything and move on. I have always liked games and have returned from back in the days of high school. I look forward to new games that interest me and for more chances to play Combat Commander. I will play any game once which brings me to my next point.

Stats, I started recording my plays sometime over a year and a half ago. I do this for myself to recap my thoughts and better understand what I liked and dislike but I also do it for fun. Last year for new years we hosted a party and gave prices to people for certain things. One person got a prize for the highest winning average, one for the lowest, etc. Since I started recording my plays I have 333 games played. This fluctuates greatly depending on time of year and how busy work is. If a game makes it into the 5 and dimes it is a success (for the most part). If it gets double digit plays it is likely very well received.

Dimes
Dominion though my most recent game has already seen 31 plays, a huge success even if most of those are bsw games.

TTR: Nordic Countries has seen 18 plays in a year and a half which puts it at the most consistantly played probably because it is so approacable.

Race for the Galaxy has been played 16 times, it is quick fun and varied.

Other notables are No Thanks, Small World (my most successfull wargame ), R-Eco and Comabat Commander.

The 5s likely to improve are Stone Age, Agricola, Empire Builder, Pandemic, Through the Ages and Tichu.

Most of my existence on BGG has been through random comments, item posts and rules discussion. In the Combat Commander forums I will frequently respond to rules questions. I have a tendency to post random and off the top of my head comments but in general I am just having fun. BGG is one of my main social outlets as is gaming in general.

I love the thumb, it says something without meaning anything. Since I joined I have gained 3800 some thumbs.
I received the most from a quick off the cuff comment in a GW Cease and Desist list
http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/48979/item/1114334?comment...
netted over 230 thumbs. That one comment has generated more than all my file uploads and geeklists.

I also like to give thumbs, I will thumb entries that interest me or make a good point or are down right funny. Of course the contests get some of those

I love contests, I participate in most if not all the ones I see. Some offer a fun diversion others offer a chance to win though my luck never seems to be in there. Many contests give geekbadges to the participants. They are a great way to bolster interest in a new upcoming game as well as a chance to generate discussion. My favorite would have to be the geek gold lotteries, though not a contest like the others it is a chance to win a game for a single piece of digital gold. My having some success winning blue moon, something else and Though the Ages may have something to do with it though.
