I'm fairly new to the board game hobby as of about late 2008. I'm usually gaming with my wife; I have friends over to game once a month or so. Thus far I'm tending towards euros more than anything, but I'm open to new games. My 'hot 10' are the 10 things I'm currently playing/wanting to play; My Top 10 are my all-time favorites. That changes from time to time, though the top 5 are pretty well entrenched.
Also, when I was in school, my friends and I used the word "nuts" to describe something that was incredibly good. "That was a really nuts movie" or "We played laser tag yesterday and it was nuts!" So that is where my nickname came from. Of course, the rest of the world uses that word differently, so my name looks like "Mr Crazy" or Mr "Balls." My nickname does not mean either of those things. My avatar is Dr Steel.
My FLGS is Cool City Games in Port Huron, MI.
I'd place my gaming tendencies at 65% Eurogames, 20% Ameritrash and 15% Abstracts. I tend to like games that fall into the 1-2 hour range. Longer games are okay, but my chances to play them are limited enough that I want to make damn sure I like a game if I;m going to spend 3-4 hours on it.
A Top 10 is not enough for all of the games I love, so here's my Top 20:
Tigris & Euphrates
Animal Upon Animal
Race for the Galaxy
A Study in Emerald
Chaos in the Old World
