Been a gamer most of my life, especially board and card games, but got out of the hobby towards the end of the 80's/early 90's. I'm heavily into computer games as well -- at one point I was a professional reviewer -- only to "rediscover" board games back in '09.
I love introducing new games to people, especially if they are a non-gamer.

As for my ratings: At first, I was trying to rate a game objectively, ranking each one relative to the other as if they were in some kind of vacuum, devoid of subjectivity. Lately I've been going with what works for me personally, even though I might be inclined to agree with someone who argues that a title ranked lesser by me might still be a better game.
