Having Board Games as a hobby since 2008. Was playing a lot of different games, but actively started to create own collection after moving from Latvia to USA in 2013. However as I was playing a lot in Latvia - my 1st buying targets were games I enjoyed the most back in Riga (except Battlestar Galactica. I do love this game but I don't have a regular company to play it). My tastes differ from games like "Battlestar Galactica" to "Carcassone". From "Through The Ages" to Descent.
Overall I do value the game components and game idea quite high. (Descent, Star Wars Queen gambit, Middle Earth Quest, D&D games)
I'm not very fond of card driven games (like "Glory to Rome", "Race through the Galaxy", "San Juan", "Warhammer Invasion").
Favorite Series is "Ticket to Ride", but again - Anniversary edition & Marklin are probably the ones I like more.
Apart from boardgames - recently became involved in D&D5 (And enjoying it!).
Video games - used to play alot, but playing occasionally now. And mostly offline (online being some boardgames like TTR, MrJack, Carcassone. And WorldOfTanks)
