I am not a gamer really, but I am back to boardgames for my nephews' sake.
I am a list freak though and simply had to join BGG in order to list the games my packrat family has hoarded for three generations and to keep track of their current whereabouts.

My family's collection includes mainly:
a) traditional games from all over the world,
b) abstract games and puzzles,
b) children's boardgames from the 1970's and 80's, mainly from French (Nathan, Miro, Mako) and Spanish (Educa, Borrás) publishers and from Ravensburger as well.

Strangely enough, since I started browsing BGG, jeuxsoc.fr, trictrac.net and labsk.net with the idea of researching recent Eurogames for my nephews, the result has been quite the opposite: it has left me lusting for obscure Brazilian boargames from the 70's, quaint European games from the 60's and many Ravensburger games contemporary of those I used to play as a kid. Having been brought up on Banda and the Eames' Memory, I guess I have a hard time finding appealing today's Eurogames and their primary colour silhouette pawns on realistically hand drawn boards in muted hues.

So in the end what did I buy my nephews? Hive Carbon, as pleasing to the eye as to the mind.
