I respond to all trade proposals, and prefer to trade multiple games at one time. I will often accept items on my 'want to play' list.
Get in touch if you are near Ilion, NY and looking for another gamer for your group / a game group. We can get together for some games to see if we are compatible gamers. Take a look at my collection to see my interests.
I currently play with an Ilion, NY based group weekly.
I am a player, not a collector. As such, much of what I have is dependent on what on what my friends are willing to play. That said, our tastes overlap pretty well, and I am happy playing most of the games from their shelves as well.
I mostly play with my family and with my childhood friends, but if you stumble across me here and are local I'd certainly be happy to game with you.
My favorite game mechanic is commodity speculation. I also like bidding games quite a bit. I dislike cooperative games. I cooperate to hang drywall, during team sports, and to do my job everyday. I play games to lovingly crush my enemies. I believe video-games are a better medium for cooperative games.

My 'pre-order' section is really my 'purchased but un-played' section.
About my ratings
I give games that I have not played, but have no interest in playing a '5.' I do this to save myself time when perusing new games, as I can ignore games that I may have already looked at by noting the '5' I gave it before, and move on to greener pastures.
