Lawrence Hung a CPA working for an internal audit department of a public company. My leisure time is spent on
1. watching movies
2. playing board wargames (WW2, WW1 and Ancients)
3. PC computer games (wargames, strategy, RPG, on-line games, soccer management, simulation games etc.)
4. Listening to Music (Alternative, Independent, Melodic Trance music)
5. Taking care of Loretta the Beauty
I have a special interest in military history (especially the Russo-German War "the Eastern Front", in WW2). I played board wargames over 30 years. I am a Catholic and like to read religious/ philosophic/ economic books. I am a geek of the classical economics, of Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Ronald Coase, Steven NS Cheung, and although I don't believe in it, Karl Marx's utopian economics. I think I am a Sherlockian, and thus like to read detective stories and adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Arsene Lupin etc. Apart from the science of deduction, I am also interested in mystic, applied, practical, uplifting and inspirational philosophies. If I had a month off, I would play day after day boardgames at home, watching movie after movie, reading book after book and listening to music CD after CD.

The BGG Hot 10 are the current favorites. The BGG Top 10 are those fermented for a while and inducted into my own Hall of Fame as the top games I have ever played. The Top 10 would change but at a snail pace, reflecting the classic state of the games they are admitted in. The Hot 10 are constantly changing as time goes by and they tend to reflect my mood and popularity of the games at a particular point in time. The table does change over time but you can figure out there are some newer games released. They are games that get on the table and played during the time.

As of 1 December, 2012, the total no. of plays is 490 and the total no. of distinctive games/ expansion played is: 206. Average no. of plays per game: 2.4. Total no. of games in collection: 1049. % of games played vs. total no. of games in collection: 21%

As of 31 December, 2013, the total no. of plays is 626 and the total no. of distinctive games/ expansion played is: 243. Average no. of plays per game: 2.6. Total no. of games in collection: 1147. % of games played vs. total no. of games in collection: 21%

Using the tool at http://bggtools.com/ as at 30 June, 2014, my estimate worth of collection:

Total Game Value (AVG): $ 28,467.74
Average Game Price: $ 30.09
Games with no price: 84 (Never Sold on BGG Market Place)

Total Games in Collection: 1030

Estimated Value (Ceryon Method)
1030 Games * Average BGG Value = 1030 * $ 30.09 = $ 30,992.70

I am a gamer type of:
67% Explorer, 60% Socializer, 47% Achiever, 27% Killer.

It's not so much the wandering around and poking about, but that euphoric eureka moment the Explorer strives for. The joys of discovery do not necessarily involve geography, real or virtual. They may derive from the mental road less traveled, the uncovering of esoteric or hidden knowledge and it's creative application. Explorers make great theory crafters. The most infinitesimal bit of newness can deliver the most delicious zing to an Explorer.

Explorer Socializers are the glue of the online world. Not only do they like to delve in to find all the cool stuff, but they also enjoy sharing that knowledge with others. Explorer socializers power the wikis, maps, forums and theory craft sites of the gamer world.
