When did this overtext thing happen? Am I supposed to think of something clever to put here?
-----------I am kind of over expansions. I'm not rating them anymore. And I'm not obsessively seeking them all out.
I like heavy/long games.
I like weird games or games with weird themes.
I don't particularly like dice.
I like to pretend theme matters even when it doesn't.
Euros > Ameritrash.
Martin Wallace FTW!
I am not English, but I want to move to England someday.
Current acquisition compulsions: Age of Steam maps and Martin Wallace games.
I am quite horrible at teaching games, sorry about that.
I keep my collection updated including all preorders.
-----------Hello Santa! Thank you so much for the gift! I can't wait to try 1989 and Niya. Sorry for the recognition delay. I received several packages last week and they all sat unopened until the weekend. I will be asking my wife to play Niya this week. 1989 will take a bit more effort to get to the table. Thanks again, Santa! Merry Christmas!
-----------My Top and Hot Ten have been temporarily removed.
My Top 10 only includes games I have played at least five times. My Hot 10 are the games I am most looking forward to playing and maybe moving into my Top 10.
Quoting from the BGG Wiki:Every game can be given a rating from 1 to 10. These ratings are entirely subjective but the suggested guidelines are:
10 - Outstanding. Always want to play, expect this will never change.
9 - Excellent. Always want to play.
8 - Very good. Like to play, will probably suggest it, will never turn it down.
7 - Good. Usually willing to play.
6 - Fair. Some fun or challenge at least, will play occasionally if in the right mood.
5 - Average. No significant appeal, take it or leave it.
4 - Below average. Slightly boring, could be talked into it on occasion.
3 - Poor. Likely won't play this again although could be convinced.
2 - Very poor. Annoying, I plan to never play this again.
1 - Defies description of a game. You won't catch me dead playing this. Clearly broken.
That is how I rate games, entirely subjectively. I do not attempt to be objective. That is why I rated your favorite game a 3. Please do not tell me that my ratings are wrong.
