Thanks for dropping by! AVATAR
The avatar is from Graham Oakley's "The Church Mice Adrift" (wonderfully funny series of children's books). Previous avatars include Captain Haddock having his beard eaten by a llama and Grover from Sesame Street. SALES & TRADES
I'm willing to sell and trade worldwide. All sales and trades to be recorded through BGG for the purposes of BGG commission and feedback.LIKES & DISLIKES
I enjoy playing:
games with plenty of theme where I play a character and not a colour,
games with variable player powers/assymetry,
games which offer players many interesting decisions,
games which tell a memorable story and
games which make me laugh.
I'm not at all keen on:
games with random 'Take That!' gameplay or kingmaking,
co-op games (unless there is a hidden traitor) miniscule text on cards (usually with acres of empty space)
efficiency engine, worker placement or games with a lot of downtime.
My ratings are based more on my desire to play a particular game again rather than how clever or well made I believe the design to be (in line with BGG guidelines, in fact). Here are component photos of some of my favourites:
My 'Hot 10' games are ones I have played (and enjoyed) recently, am interested in playing or are in development.
Answer to VdG riddle (in comments): DRY! It was too easy, wasn't it?
