My recently played games:

For my game ratings, I use the scale proposed by dakarp:

10: Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favorites.
9: Excellent game. Always a pleasure to play. Shines under most circumstances.
8: Very good game. Rarely disappoints me. High on my request/recommend list.
7: Good game. Usually willing to play. I might even request or recommend it.
6: OK game. Some fun or challenge at least. Enjoyable in the right circumstances.
5: Average game. I'm indifferent, but may be willing to play.
4: Below average game. I avoid playing and would need to be persuaded.
3: Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
2: Very poor game. I refuse to play this.
1: Dead game. Seriously negative entertainment value. Black Hole of Fun.

My top 10 list include my all-time favorites. A few might shift around slightly or rotate out, but the general list is pretty well set right now.

My hot 10 list is games that I want to play most right now (which I'm not currently playing). Some of them are new and some have been played before, but they're all causing an itch.

I have been logging my games played since June 2008.

About my avatar: It's a picture of Keira Knightley. I was originally using it as a placeholder until I changed it to something I really wanted, but I kind of grew accustomed to the image and it stuck.

2014: Five Tribes (Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game)
2013: BattleLore (Second Edition) (Coup)
2012: Android: Netrunner (Seasons)
2011: Eclipse (Nightfall)
2010: High Frontier (Earth Reborn)

One of my new favorite quotes:

MScrivner wrote:
It seems like a lot of people really enjoy cultivating farms, building economies, managing resources. I would way rather spend my gaming time setting torch to farms and salting the earth as my armies march through, laying slaughter to the workers, and wrecking economies by introducing a new and dominant currency: bone chips from the corpses of my enemies. I don't want to indirectly prevent you from efficiently using your resources, I want to crack the planet from orbit with my flying space fortress so there are no resources left for anybody. And I want to sit at the table with gamers willing to do the same, who are willing to slit the jugulars of their housepets in a ritual to summon beings from the outer darkness to stop me from winning, who would sooner enslave their own grandmothers to sea pirates if it meant fewer victory points for me.
