I aspire to be a contemplative, non-competetive gamer. Card games and middle-weight board games have the most appeal for me. I tend to enjoy simple yet novel mechanisms, and great component quality. Recently I've been drawn to world-building games; it's so satisfying to invest in improvements, then to reap the benefits of those improvements later on. I'm beginning to revisit many popular games (e.g. Puerto Rico) that I initially disliked, thinking that I might now be ready.

My "Hot 10" list comprises ten games I am currently playing regularly, or that I'm hoping to play.

Beginning in March 2011 I've begun using BGG's rating system. In addition, I now include how often/soon I'd like to play the game, and how many times I've played it with various numbers of players.

From May 2003 to February 2011 I used the following rating system. My rating system--an 11 Point scale (0-10)--was broken down into three sub-categories:

PRODUCTION QUALITY (0-3 points):
(0) Production design interferes with play; home-made quality
(1) Nothing special
(2) Attractive, functional, durable
(3) Near perfect

EAGERNESS TO PLAY AGAIN (0-2 points):
(0) No interest in playing again
(1) Would play again
(2) Want to play again

ENJOYMENT (0-5 points):
(0) Would rather have spent my time elsewise
(1) Nothing special
(2) Mildly fun, interesting, and engaging
(3) Fun, interesting, and engaging
(4) Very fun, interesting, and engaging
(5) Amazingly fun, interesting, and engaging
