Been gaming since the early '70's as a lad. I've done some design and development work in the hobby, but will always consider myself a player. I play for fun, and am not that competitive. Which is good, because like most designer types I stink at playing! My Top 10 list to your right are my favorite games of all time, listed in alphabetical order. My Hot 10 List are the ones I've played alot of lately (also in alphabetical order) that COULD break into my Top Ten at some point. I love surfing BoardgameGeek; it is easily the best gaming hub on the net. Yes, yes, I know about Consimworld but ya know; I'd rather not pay to be insulted. Here it is free!
