This is actually my second BGG account and I believe I first joined BGG back in late 2002. It's been awhile...

Anyway, I deleted my original account (did not want my BGG account associated with my real world name) and ported over my game collection inventory, games played (Sept 2008 onwards) and game ratings plus comments back in 2010. Was more of a lurker anyway, and I guess I still am.

Streamlining my board game collection. Ongoing selection of games available for sale or trade...

Game Collection, Marketplace and Trading
My collection, trade list, trade condition comments and want list is current.

Most of the games on my trade list are available for sale in the BGG Marketplace and if not listed for sale, will sell... i.e. there is a reason a game is tagged for "trade", please contact me if interested.

___________________________________


Gaming Interests:

Low to medium complexity wargames: I generally prefer quick playing wargames at all levels (tactical, operational and strategic) that can be completed in a long lazy day or two to three sessions at most.

Will tolerate extra rules "grit" for improved simulation value if I am very interested in the topic, otherwise a more abstract design is fine.

Favourite periods: Ancients, WWII, Cold War, Modern/Hypothetical, SF, but will play games from other eras.

Generally prefer good games (with SOME historicity and/or realism) to good simulations.

Multi-player strategy games: 1830, Titan, Dune, Thematic/Ameritrash games if not too unbalanced, random or chaotic. Not Diplomacy.

Eurogames: Knizia and Kramer are favourite designers. Martin Wallace has interesting designs, but is less consistent. I do like some tie-in with theme, but not completely necessary if the game play is excellent.

PC Games: Long time PC gamer. Some of my favourites:

Star Control 2, Homeworld, Thief series, Half-Life 2, Left 4 Dead 2, System Shock 2, Doom, BattleZone (1998 underrated hybrid RTS/FPS title), FreeSpace 2, Independence War (I-War), Fallout series, Portal 2, Grim Fandango, The Sword of the Stars and Counter-Strike (1.6 to Global Offensive).

Slowly playing through my Steam library backlog...

Other Stuff:

Games Played: Board game plays since September 2008. Game sessions dated 1999-01-01 used to mark games that have been played, but before I started formally recording board game plays.

Game Ratings: I use the BGG rating scale.

Hot 10: Want to play list of games that I own.
