HI THERE, SANTA!

Wow. Just plain wow. Thanks so very much Santa--you're amazing!

Item for Geeklist "2012 Edition of Look What My Secret Santa sent me..."

Now back to your regularly scheduled profile...

My gaming odyssey began just after Christmas 2006, when my wife and I spotted a kiosk in the mall selling "real" games. We bought Guillotine and Quiddler (the latter since traded), and thus began our trek into proper gaming. (Ironically, at the same kiosk was Ticket to Ride, and although I was keen on buying it, I thought it might be too complex for my wife...little did I know when I purchased it later that it would be one of her favorites!)

I've since moved on to many more games, and have become somewhat of a collector. Mind you, not in the sense of getting all of the 3M Bookshelf Games or something like that, but rather in that I tend to want to keep buying and buying and buying. I gather that this is not an uncommon trait amongst us 'Geeks. I'm also big into thrifting and have found some great eBay fodder (like the 1999 Hasbro version of Acquire, still sealed!), as well as a few keepers for my own collection.

Finally, while I still love playing Ticket to Ride or Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot, I'm also moving on to games like Puerto Rico and Power Grid. Now I just have to convince my wife that they're great fun!

Note for anyone who actually looks at this thing... My "Top 10" entries are my highest-rated games as of whenever I last edited that list. If I get around to it, my "Hot 10" entries are the games I'm most interested in or play most often--which will usually, but not always, be similar to my Top 10.

Oh, and because I want to toot my own horn, I was the moderator of the first math trade to break 2000 items--the Cabin Fever math trade. We ended up with close to 2500 entries, and had 994 trades (42% or so), including a single chain of roughly 900 items!
