I'm a computer programmer, a juggler, and a gamer (board and roleplaying). I like abstracts, German games, American games, and really find that game systems, such as Icehouse, piecepack, or Decktet, appeal to my sense of elegance.
My top 10 are simply my favorite games of all times. It's a rare day when someone will offer to play one and I'll refuse. My hot 10 are the ones that I've been playing a lot of recently. When rating games, I tend to rate most games above 5, since I mostly play games that I think I'll like, and I enjoy most games that I play. A game has to really suck before I'll rate it below 5.
