Trades welcome! In fact, Trades of games for money are also welcome! Feel free to offer me money for my "for trade" games, or feel free to offer to sell me a game on my wishlist (all sales must go through the BGG marketplace so they get their 3% commission). Trade proposals or geekmail are fine. For games I'm wiling to part with, my trade interest can usually (but not always) be inferred from the rating I have given. For games on my wishlist, I definitely want 1's and 2's, but 3's and 4's are going to have to be a good deal to tempt me.

I record all plays, usually with a mini session report. I also tend to have extensive mini-review-like comments about each rated game. Feel free to geekmail me any questions about my game ratings or comments. My "Hot 10" are games that I am most looking forward to trying, or which I have only played a bit and want to play more.


My proudest BGG achievement is PeakHope's comprehensive list of purely cooperative games.


My Gaming History:

We had hundreds of board games when I was growing up, including several that were extremely obscure. I almost got into wargames, but they were too tedious (plus I'm a pacifist in real life). I got away from boardgames as a teen. Then D&D (1st Ed) was a big hit for a couple years, but the roleplaying became less fun, and being or finding a DM was difficult. D&D is responsible for my love of fantasy dungeon crawls.

Wizardry on a PC in 1984 was probably my favorite game of all time. It has set my expectations for all future dungeon crawls. Over the years, I have tried to create my own computer dungeon crawl about five times. At some point I pretty much gave up playing computer games, and for that matter pretty much got out of board games too.

In 2010, I got back into board games, along with my wife. My preference is lighter-medium games (weight 1.5-2.8) with at least some theme, and minimal direct player vs. player attacks. Cooperative games are great.

Here are the most recent games I have played:
