I've always been an avid gamer. I started gaming as a kid in the 80's and I've played a great number of many different kinds of games during the years (RPGs, video games, CCGs, miniature wargames..) and as far as boardgames go I enjoy a wide variety of games from abstract Eurogames to thematic Ameritrash, depending on the situation and the people I play with.. A good game is a good game regardless of its specific type or theme. I'm a bit picky though; a game needs to be really good/fun or I won't be playing it again likely. My TOP-10 games list has many completely different kinds of games, the only certain common factor being that I enjoy playing them.

I love Civ-style games, and strategy games in general. I most enjoy games where careful planning pays off, but that doesn't always mean completely dry analytical games (I'm not a huge fan of Chess, but I do love Puerto Rico, for example). I'm also a sucker for nice game components and miniatures and love to tinker with my games and "pimp'em up" with nice parts.

I'm not a big fan of luck-based games (especially as mine always seems bad!), but I do also enjoy many games where it actually is a major element.. I don't mind it in short games and miniature games, for instance, and a right dose of change adds nicely to the tension and excitement in many games. Generally I feel luck is an important element in many thematic games, but I hate it in abstract games.

Elegant mechanics and gameplay is important to me, but so is an interesting theme and aesthetically pleasing visual look. The most important thing to me, however, is always the FUN factor. The best games in my opinion combine all these into a great mix.

Unfortunately I don't have as much time for gaming as I'd like, but I'm lucky to have several gamer friends to play with (although they are just as busy most of the time). I often coerce my lovely fiancée into playing boardgames with me, but sadly she is not a very enthusiastic gamer (and we both hate losing!). Our two cats are interested in (eating pieces of) boardgames, however.

I haven't been actively logging my plays but I'm trying to do that now more regularly. Here's a list of games I've played recently:
