What type of games do you prefer (party games, abstract games like go or chess, war games, strategy games, etc.)?

A little more on the elements of war - tactical - strategy - historical or fiction- skirmish games. I might have mellowed with age and enjoy most games. I am BIG on theme games I also like a good range of abstracts - see below. Love dungeon crawls and tile laying games. I paint minis and have a decent collection of WH 40k and fantasy. Also a fair number of Firestorm Armada minis, (these don't get much play). Other than that I have a broad range of games.

What are your favorite games?

Because of the solo play, (mini's) and playing with kids I am enjoying the new D&D Adv. boardgames. Abstract games - Hive, Mills, Othello, Quarto. Also enjoy Backgammon and 42. My wife's current favourite games (and mine), Carcassonne and Lords of Waterdeep. Also play DBA. Games I have and want to play, Battleship Galaxies, Battlestar Galactica, MM44, Command and Colors Ancients and many others. Heroscape is one of my all time faves.

Introduction

Born and raised in Calgary. I am a long time board, table top and RPG gamer, (cut my teeth on Squad Leader and D&D back in the day). Left the hobby for a good number of years but I'm BACK.
