Not my favorite thing to see hero against hero...
...but until Marvel makes a big mistake I'm going to trust them.
Ten Facts about Ben Lott

1) My avatar is a never-ending carousel of my favorite pop-culture things. I spent years as Adrian Monk, and often come back to that. Monk is basically my default, but I don't like being tied down to just one thing.

2) I have the greatest wife in the universe (Rikki). She actually gave me the push I needed to get started on this hobby, and she still supports it. Here's a picture of us together:

3) I'm open to playing just about any game, but I usually purchase and own lighter family games because of #4.

4) I play games with family and friends, I don't have a game group. So I am the only real "gamer" around, and therefore I am also the game explainer and the game owner.

5) I rate games after I've played them once (unless we played it incorrectly or there was something else messing up the game experience.) I rate based on my desire to play again, and try to update my ratings when logging another game played, if I think something has changed.

6) I log all my games played, but only if it is a face-to-face experience. I do not log any detail of my plays, just the date and the games played. With very few exceptions, when I log a game session where we used an expansion I log a full play of the base game and a full play of the expansion. This is because, in my opinion, both were played at the same time.

7) The Detroit Lions are my favorite team, I love them and have faithfully rooted for them through thick and thin over 30 years now. Each year I will track their regular season wins and losses in my Geekbadge.

8) My Hot 10 List are the 10 games I own, that I have played only once, and desire to get back to the table the most (I do not include expansions in this list.)

9) I work with the youth group at our church. This is probably some of the most enjoyable and rewarding work I've done. And we play a lot of our games with the youth, too.

10) I am a boardgame podcast addict. My favorites are Flip the Table, The Dice Tower, Garrett's Games & Geekiness, and On Board Games.
