So I own 500 games. Yeah I know I'm an amateur. I've been in gaming for about 7 years. Its very cool to have finally played all the games I own. My plan is to not buy games before I play them. We'll see if I am successful.

PS. I'm not successful as I am buying the new Colovini and the Mayan calendar game without playing either of them. The only other game on my buy list now is Mythotopia, a new Wallace game that is basically 4 player "A Few Acres of Snow". According to Martin (Yes, I loved the game so much I wrote him and asked him when it was coming out, his answer was doubtfully before next year).

25. Although I think this should still be referred to as Age of Empires, it is one of my very favorite games. I have the expansion but haven't gotten it to the table yet.

22. This would be higher if it wasn't so hard to get to the table. A lot of moving parts and you better like auctions if you sit down to play this one.

20. No I guess, this is my highest new entry to the list. I tend to like about 1/2 of Feld's game and dislike the other half. I own the 5 I like and I really like Trajan. I find it a fascinating puzzle to solve. Yes. it is a bit of 4 player solitaire and I generally don't like games of this kind, but this puzzle is so interesting, I really enjoy it.

19. I'm moving away from the typical, ask a question give an answer game because most of my friends don't enjoy them. This game intrigues me because of the bezzerwizzering and zwapping.

6. This one falls from the top spot of my last list but will probably never fall out of my top 10. The best variable player power game I've played. Somewhat intersted in the Realms, but afraid "as in Power Grid" that it will be too aggravating to keep up with the differences. I'f you've read my older lists, Power Grid was close to the top, its fallen off because of its length.

1. If you look at my most played list, this is at the top. There's a reason for that. Why do I play board games: a)to socialize, b) to solve puzzles (I see all games as basically puzzles to solve, c) my deep love of trick taking games (climbing game blah blah blah, you have to take tricks to go out) and this game is just plain fun, win or lose.
Whether it will stay here for the next list which will be quite a while because I plan to do the next list when I hit 2000 different games played and I just passed 1200, who knows, but for number 1, I have to pick Tichu as the game that best represents where I am in gaming right now.
