My love of board games stretches back to the late '70's, when I thought "The Muppet Show" was the best show on TV. Come to think of it, I was right:



Almost three years ago, I gave up law practice for something more worthwhile. In techie parlance, this would be akin to performing a "hard reboot" on my life.

Now, I'm head of circulation at a largish academic law library here in Balto. I'm also certified to teach LSATs and MCAT Verbals, so I'm doing that, as well. And I haven't had to yell at anyone since 2005, apart from Peoples Gas (that's fine; they deserved it).

So, I'm not horribly picky when it comes to game types. I'm not a huge fan of abstracts, but theme-heavy Ameritrash, wooden-cube-heavy Euros, and even hex-and-counter wargames are just fine by me. Strategy, auctions, tiles, dragons, you name it, I'll probably play it.

My "Hot Games" list is interesting stuff I've played recently. "Top 10" is stuff you can always get me to play.
