Outside of boardgames, I'm a fan of HP Lovecraft (Cthulhu mythos), gothic horror (stories, movies, games, etc.), and the love that God showed for the world by dying on the cross.

Things I like in boardgames:
-emergent story (A Touch of Evil, Arkham Horror),
-thematic euros (Argent: the Consortium, Robinson Crusoe, Viticulture),
-games where you have a character that fights and finds cool weapons and levels up (Descent: Journeys in the Dark 2nd ed, Shadows of Brimstone, World of Warcraft the boardgame),
-variety (BattleCON, Legendary- Marvel)

Things I hate in boardgames:
-deterministic combat with no randomness (A Game of Thrones, Hyperborea),
-being required to constantly bluff (Coup, The Resistance),
-mechanics for the sake of mechanics (Eminent Domain, City of Iron)

I'm 34. I used to love playing Heroquest with my brother back when I was about 10-14. When I was 13 or 14 I got introduced to Magic: The Gathering and played that off and on till 2014. I also got into a couple other CCGs around that time. I'd played a few semi-real boardgames back around then too like Axis & Allies and Shogun, but it wasn't until college that I was introduced to Settlers of Catan.

I didn't really get much else into boardgames until Christmas '04 when I decided to get War of the Ring for my brother on a whim. After I bought it for him, I went online to see what I could find out about it, and the first site I found was BGG. Since then, I haven't bought a single game without consulting BGG.

My favorite type of game is amerithrash, though I'm really getting back into euros pretty heavily. I also like some wargames (as long as they don't contain rules listed like 6.2.1)There really isn't any type of game that I don't enjoy and I'll try pretty much anything.

My Top 10 are my favorite games of all time, and my Hot 10 are the games (or expansions) that I've never played that I most want to try.
