BOARDGAMES AND ME
My boardgaming career started a long time ago, when I was about 8 or 9. Ok, before then, I played Pachisi, Nine Men's Morris etc.(You know what I mean )
My grandfather worked as facility manager in a great department store which also had a laaaarge toy and games section. In these days one of my dreams was to live in this store. Every time we visited Grandma and Grandpa (two times a year) my brother and I each got one thing from the toy section. So I got my first boardgames. I think, the first was Journey Through Europe (My mother told me what I wanted ), over the years follwed by games like Which Witch?, Star Wars: Escape From Death Star Game, Tank Battle and Winnetou.
During vacation with my cousin I learned to love those tiny Airfix soldiers, which inspired me to create something like a table top - not as complex as they are today, but we were both about thirteen, it had to be created very fast and because both of us were to idle to write those rules down, it only worked with some elemental rules - and I still know them, about a thirty years from then^^.
Then followed a non-gaming period for some years, ended by a sudden interest for role playing games. Here in Germany, Das Schwarze Auge: Abenteuer Basis-Spiel (1st edition) was a new, but soon well known German RPG, settled in a mediaeval fantasy world. It had some absurd riddles in V1 and V2 e.g. a riddle where the solution was Bob Dylan, but nonetheless I loved it.
Boardgames I played (bought) in this period were games like Heimlich & Co., The aMAZEing Labyrinth or Inkognito. "Problem" was, my gf only played such games (Today, as she is my wife, she almost doesn't play anymore). Other games I loved, like Ikusa or Targui, she totally ignored

Top 10: Can't help, just love them (I'm not quite sure about the proper sequence in ranking in my Top 10, but they are Top 10)

Hot 10: Most played games during the last 6 month (excluding played children's games). Originally I wanted to update it at the 1st of each month, but by now I updated the list 2 or 3 times a month.
Tsuro, for a long time leader of this list, isn't one of my favorite games, but I used to play it in my job as a social worker with a group of children, ages 6 to 8. They love the "dragon-game", so we nearly played it each week. Now Cubiko is the new favorite of the kids.
