Happy New Year!!Wow, Secret Santa, you beat me to it. Thanks for the great gifts. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/199309/item/4285897#i...Decoding my wishlist:1 (Must Have)
-- These are things that I will own, period. It may be a bit down-the-road, but these are going into my collection 100% for sure.2 (Love to Have)
-- These are things that I will own as well. Just not as 'urgent' as the "Must Have" list...but not too far behind.3 (Like to Have)
-- These would be cool to have. Not in a rush and they might not be played anytime soon, if/when I get them.4 (Thinking About)
-- This is the cool part of the list. If I see something that catches my eye, but I haven't done any research on it yet, it goes here. Think of this as a catch-all for games that I want to know more about. After investigating more, I will make a decision on where to put it on the list (if anywhere at all). A lot of times, these just get deleted (ie. I don't want the game at all, after learning more about it).5 (Don't Buy This)
-- For the most part, unused. There are a plethora of games that could go on this part of the list, but I found it just clutters the list. However, there are a few that I do not like or that don't interest me at all.Previously Owned

This is Daniel Karp's
scale of ratings and I like it so I am going to adopt it:
You can find it here
10: Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favorites.
9: Excellent game. Always a pleasure to play. Shines under most circumstances.
8: Very good game. Rarely disappoints me. High on my request/recommend list.
7: Good game. Usually willing to play. I might even request or recommend it.
6: OK game. Some fun or challenge at least. Enjoyable in the right circumstances.
5: Average game. I'm indifferent, but may be willing to play.
4: Below average game. I avoid playing and would need to be persuaded.
3: Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
2: Very poor game. I refuse to play this.
1: Dead game. Seriously negative entertainment value. Black Hole of Fun.(Feel the Suck!)
I usually game in a small circle of friends of around 3-5. Lately, we have been playing Eldritch Horror, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Splendor and Eclipse. I am open to play most board, card, dice games. I am big fan of horror movies so I guess that translate into my board games as well, so I enjoy games like Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror, Eldersign, Mansions of Madness, Zombie Carnival, etc. I also really enjoy games that have a good theme and/or comedy in them like King of Tokyo, Last Will, Rampage, Monsters Menace America, and such. I also have some deck building fever and if you look at my games own games like Legendary, Core Worlds, and Star Realms. I am usually open to try a lot of different games as long as they do not take forever to play. Which is somewhat funny because I like Arkham Horror which has pretty long play times. Recently Played:
