I'm back in central New Jersey. From 2007-2011, I was a regular at the Boardgames-NJ Meetup Group (Woodbridge,NJ), but now most of my gaming time is spent at the homes of close friends. My wife & I play mostly Euro-style games, but we enjoy some oldies and non-traditional games too (e.g. Acquire, Crayon Rails, Buffy:TVS, Arkham Horror, Silverton and Black Vienna).

** My game ratings/rankings are based on the verbatim BGG definitions. **

I prefer games that have easy/accessible rules and high replay value. Also, I'm fond of games with expansions or variants that alter strategies and add replay value.

My Top 10 reflects great games that I think will stand the test of time.
My Hot 10 reflects games that my parents, siblings and in-laws are willing to play.

My Timeline of Favorite Games:

1985-1990 (Crossbows & Catapults, Pokeno)
1990-1992 (Monopoly meltdown at b-day party)
1992-1997 (failed attempts at D&D and Spellfire)
1997-2001 (Yahtzee, Buffy:TVS board game)
2003-2005 (Alhambra, Bohnanza)
2005-2007 (San Juan, Union Pacific, Empire Builder)
2007-2009 (Arkham Horror, Race for the Galaxy, Dominion)
2009-2011 (Tribune, Agricola, Darjeeling, Perry Rhodan, Uruk:Weige der Civilization)
2011-2013 (Jet Set, Middle Earth Quest, Merchants + Maruaders)
2013-2014 (Snowdonia, Glass Road, Concordia, Ginkgopolis)

The Geekbuddy Analysis button in the ratings section of each game is my favorite feature of BGG. It helps to have a quick way to view/poll a game's ratings and comments from people that I know personally. I try to pay it forward by entering my own comments for every game that I play.
