My Avatar (The Count) is the nickname my family has given me with regards to games since childhood. It refers to my OCD tendencies to make sure I have every piece and bit of all my games.

I love all games! mb

I like Eurogames, Ameritrash, card games, party games to play with family and friends, children's games, abstracts, and wargames. I also like to play old "standards" like Monopoly, Risk, and Scrabble. There are very few games I dislike completely, and there is usually something in a game I will like.

I love modern games, but I like old games (traditional games) too, and I have a fondness for games that have stood the test of time (Go, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, etc.). I love the history of games to go with my love of history. I love game books and books about game history (like Alfonso X's Libro de Juegos in 1283).

I currently play most games with my fifteen year old son and a local gamegroup of people I met here on BGG.

My "Favorite Games" are a mix of different kinds of games, because it depends on the group or person I am playing with on what game I prefer. My current favorite games from each category are as follows:

Advanced Strategy game: mbmb
Strategy game: mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb
Family game: mbmbmbmbmbmb
Thematic game: mbmbmbmbmbmb
Card game: mbmbmb
Dexterity game: mbmb
Abstract game: mbmbmbmbmbmbmb
Wargame: mbmb
Customizable game: mbmb
Party game: mbmb

If I had to pick a Favorite Top 10, currently they would be:

1. Poker - (1810)
2. Crokinole - (1867)
3. Through the Ages - (2006)
4. El Grande - (1995)
5. Ra - (1999)
6. Memoir '44 - (2004)
7. Puerto Rico - (2002)
8. Nexus Ops - (2005)
9. Diplomacy - (1959)
10. Wits & Wagers - (2005)

Ratings: I have adopted dakarp's alternate ratings: Alternate Rating Guidelines, but I also like to see how games age.

To prevent me from rating by "the cult of the new", I don't rate anything a "10" unless it has been around at least 10 years and I have played it at least 10 times. I don't like my ratings to change much, so I try to rate based on what I will still feel about a game 10 years from now.

I often use a system to rate games in Geeklists or blogs:
10 and 9:

Geekbuddies: If you have come here because I have added you as a Geekbuddy, I add Geekbuddies for many different reasons: I like your taste in games, you play games with your child(ren) like I do, you write good comments about games so I like to see what you have to say (even if I disagree), I like your posts, I have befriended you, or I also Geekbuddy anyone who has done the same to me (once I notice it).

Microbadges: I love Microbadges. I spend most of my bag on them.
