I love games! Euros primarily, but I also enjoy American and hybrid style games. I like 1 - 2 hour playing times and fast turns. I want a reasonable amount of meat in a game, usually 2.5 - 3.5 weight, unless it is just a great light game. I don't mind merchant and medieval themes. The artwork is important to me. Also, I tend to play games by feel, not by calculation, so I'm not as prone to analysis paralysis.

Board games are a hobby that for me contain the perfect combination of qualities. Here is a list of reasons why I love them:

- I get to collect them, but they have a purpose, they don't just sit there.
- The hobby involves interaction with other people.
- Board games are art that can be interacted with.
- Board games can be appreciated physically and have a longevity to them that can't be found in video games.
- I get to use my brain.
- I can spend time learning about and discussing board games when I am not playing them.
- There are always more games available to learn and discover.
- Since board games are not a solo or on-demand activity (such as video games, which can be played any time) and require planning and commitment they maintain their level of demand.

I know that I have found a hobby that will last my lifetime.

On a personal note, I have been a Christian for over 8 years. I have only God to thank for the blessed life that I have. For my wife and new baby (born May 31, 2012), my family, my job and even my favorite hobby, board games, which I enjoy so much. I pray that you would all come to know Him and that we could be together in heaven.


My Top 10 are my favorite games.

My Hot 10 are my last 10 acquisitions.
