I've been collecting and playing "Euro" boardgames for about 12 years now. A friend introduced them to me and I've been addicted ever since. I have a big collection which has been sitting dormant for a few years because my kids were small and I didn't have the time to get a group together. I'm trying to put a regular/semi-regular group together now so I can get back to playing my old favorites and try out all of the great new stuff coming out.
Very recently I've been introduced to "Ameritrash" games (I use that word lovingly) and I am really starting to appreciate them. What I like the most about them are the very cool pieces (miniatures especially) and the fantasy nature that most have.
I've been bitten by the "gaming bug" again and my wallet is paying for it...but I'm loving every minute of it.
I am absolutely a member of "The Cult of the New". I love trying new games and figuring out the strategy.
My "Top 10" list is my favorite games. My "Hot 10" list are the ones I'm playing (and most interested in playing) right now.
I also enjoy playing video games and poker in addition to boardgames.
