Send me a Geekmail if you'd like to play an online boardgame! I'm always interested in playing games at spielbyweb.com, mabiweb.com, yucata.de, brettspielwelt.de or boardgaming-online.com.
I had a blast playing Eat Poop You Cat
games by geekmail in Chit Chat. Here are some of my pictures:
I was RPG Geek of the Week #106!
And also, Chit Chatter of the Day lucky #13!
I'm a eurogamer. I prefer games that let you fight over (board) position to games that are about maximizing your score. Tile laying games, auction games and card games rank among my favorites. I also greatly enjoy game systems that allow for making your own variant boards or cards. Ask me about my C&C: Ancients scenarios
, RoboRally boards, Neuroshima Hex! armies and Through the Ages wonders and leaders.

On rating expansions:
I give expansions two ratings. One is for how much I enjoy the game with the expansion, following the BGG guidelines.
The other is for how much it improves the base game:
The game is worse with the expansion. Avoid!
Doesn't improve the base game. Skip it.
Minor improvements: nice, but unnecessary. Only if you really like the base game and need something extra.
Major improvements: really adds to the base game. Worth getting.
Essential, wouldn't play without. If you get the base game, make sure you get this too!
