I'm a nearing-middle-aged gamer in New Brunswick, Canada, and I got into board-gaming around 2010, lured in by games like Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, and Hive. I'm lucky (or perhaps evangelical) enough to have multiple gaming groups with whom to satisfy my craving for gaming, each preferring different levels of variety, theme, and complexity.

My wife and I have a little girl, and she's the best. She's too young right now to follow the rules to any games, but she's interested in the pieces, and in spending time with me. Hopefully, the future will hone her patience and maintain her interest, and will see us playing games together. Or she could think games are stupid; que sera, sera.

The rating system on BGG isn't to my taste. I'm using this alternate one (Daniel Karp's, so I've heard):

10: Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favorites.
9: Excellent game. Always a pleasure to play. Shines under most circumstances.
8: Very good game. Rarely disappoints me. High on my request/recommend list.
7: Good game. Usually willing to play. I might even request or recommend it.
6: OK game. Some fun or challenge at least. Enjoyable in the right circumstances.
5: Average game. I'm indifferent, but may be willing to play.
4: Below average game. I avoid playing and would need to be persuaded.
3: Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
2: Very poor game. I refuse to play this.
1: Dead game. Seriously negative entertainment value. Black Hole of Fun.
