Been regularly gaming since late 2011. Was introduced to Arkham Horror while visiting my brother in Japan in Fall of 2010, though didn't catch the gaming bug until the following year. My favorite games are either highly thematic co-ops or brain burner economic games. My favorite game right now is Shadows of Brimstone.

I live in Los Angeles with my partner and our pets. We both work in Animation and enjoy board games, video games, the beach, comics, and outdoorsy stuff.

Lately I've been "pricing" the worth of my games by how much I spent on the game, divided by number of plays, and divided again by average length of each play. Not including length of time makes longer games seem more expensive than quicker games, when over the life of playing the game, I may be spending MORE time playing those games even though I am logging less plays for them. Ie 6 plays of Twilight Imperium, with average length of 8 hours is 48 hours of playing Twilight Imperium vs 12 plays of Escape Curse of the Temple with an average play time of 20 mins is 4 hours of total play time for that game. For short games, I'll sometimes include cost per play, instead of just cost/plays/length because spending $59 on King of Tokyo, playing it 16 times, but plays are only 30 min means that it is just as expensive per play time as my current Shadows of Brimstone tally, but I spend 10 times on SoB than KoT. Anyway, so the calculations aren't perfect - but for me it shows me am I getting my moneys worth? And if not, why? Is the game worth its current cost per playtime? Do I need to play it more? Do I want to play it more? And if the later, than I guess I should consider selling/trading it, right? Of course, some of my favorite games hardly make it to the table, but are worth the cost to keep, because they are just that good of a game.
