Santa,
Got to play Viticulture solo with Tuscany
expansion Mamas & Poppas 3 times, 1-1-1.
The best game accessory for me now is
Viticulture upgrade coins;
I'm asking parents for some.
Thanks again!!! Merry Christmas!!!

Santa,
Thank you so much!
Your generous present arrived on Saturday,
but life has been SO busy that I
didn't get time to look it over
until today.
Tuscany is many games in one and
looks fun to play solo!
Can't wait to find time and table space!
+++++++
Santa,
Never doubted your existence for a moment.
(though your first message came in time; I've
been having a rather down week)
Now I anxiously keep looking out the windows.
(hoping it isn't a lump of coal)

All the best,
Gordon

Virginia, is there really a Santa?
If so, I hope he is getting lots
of games from his Santa.

Dear Santa,

This year I have been a very good boy, please
put me on your nice list. Been doing my
homework for my MOOC classes (now on my 23rd),
taken photos for my annual WBC gaming week,
and written some stories of my childhood
adventures for my kids.

Hope to hear from you via the anonymous login;
I will respond on my profile page; love the interaction!
Do not be silent, please.

As I really want the “must have”
item on my wishlist, I hope your elves
are able to build it.

Best Wishes!
A very Merry Christmas to you and yours,
Gordon

Interesting discovery: Friendless' extended stats site:
(http://friendless.servegame.org/dynamic/index.html).
AMAZING when you enter YOUR collection.

Mostly play two-player games these days; would love to host a monthly
game club at my house (if able to convince my wife.)

LIKES:
Abstracts with tacked on themes (Knizia-games)
Well-integrated rich theme games (WOTRing);
Innovative, elegant, mechanics (Tigris and Urban Sprawl);
Tile laying (Carcassonne Castle or Taluva);
Play-balanced scenarios (Memoir or Clash);
Good luck/length ratio: shorter games=more luck (Alhambra or Lost Cities);
Beautiful artwork/components (Age of Empires III or Faded Glory)
Easy to apply DIY creativity to improve (Puerto Rico or DBA/HOTT);
Beautiful mapboard (Pillars of the Earth) or
Historical terrain map (Alesia);
Humorous conversation-starters (Pompeii or Long Shot);
Teaches something (Conquest of Paradise or Twilight Struggle);
Cards/dice/chit pulls (War of the Ring);
Figuring the odds and taking calculated risks (Manila or Thebes);
Bluffing/out-guessing (Mr. Jack);
Race games (Roborally or Miss. Queen);
Classics (Backgammon or Poker)

DISLIKES:
Memory games;
Apriori-knowledge greatly disadvantages newcomer;
Dexterity games (no longer able to play);
Blind bidding as major element;
Small, hard-to-read text, fiddly rules.

++++++ ALSO:
I do graphic design for inventing games (published!) and paint minis (Battlecry, Clash, DBA, RoboRally).
I began gaming in the 70's w/Panzerblitz and Risk.
Started my 2 kids on Awful Green Things long ago.

Used to play several Euros once a month at the Annapolis game club, now dream of hosting one.
