I've loved boardgames as long as I can remember! I still have lots of the games from my childhood.
I got into more serious games with Axis and Allies when I was a teenager. In Winnipeg, I played lots of Risk and started to buy some of the Avalon Hill reissues.
When I moved to Ottawa, I got into more complex games with a group of gamers and was finally introduced to European games!
Now I'm in Edmonton. I've been expanding my collection and getting more involved on this site.
I got really involved in this site for a while in 2011 but have since cut back a lot.
My username and my avatar are both inspired by my favourite game: In the Shadow of the Emperor
. I wouldn't mind changing my username to something less serious sounding but I'm stuck with it.
My Top 10 boardgames
are my most current favourite games of all time. I've played them all enough to rate them properly. I also own them all since, of course, I'd want to own my favourite games. My Hot 10 boardgames
are the games that are not in my 10 and that I am most interested in playing at the moment and/or need to play more before putting them in the Top 10
My Top 10 videogames
are the games I've most liked playing in my life. This was a hard list to make and will probably be tweaked often.
Note on my wishlist (since I've been asked): I am only really considering getting anything with a 3 or higher. 4 just means I noticed it once, did no research, and just made a note of it.
