What games do you most like to play? What games have you played lately?

I like cooperative games a lot (Pandemic! Zombicide! Space Alert!), but I can get into all kinds of games. Recently I've been playing Betrayal at House on the Hill, the aforementioned Pandemic and Zombicide, and a bit of Dominion. My husband and I are looking for new people to play Space Alert with, since it's not nearly as fun with just two!

How often do you like to play board games?

More than I currently play them. :) My previous set of roommates were more into it than this set, alas, but I like to play whenever I get the time (lately once or twice a week).

What can your game group do for you? Also, what can YOU do you for your game group? Can you teach any games? Which ones?

Ask not what your game group can do for you! I am mostly looking to find geeky folks to hang out with (my husband and I just moved to Berkeley from SF this year, and we're finding the social scene somewhat different). I can teach... all the games I have? I don't have a ton, but I've found Tichu (card game with Euchre-ish roots?) to be interesting, and for non-board-game-players like my parents I've been having fun teaching Betrayal at House on the Hill.

Do you have a particular style of play? If so, please describe it.

I don't have a style that goes across all games, really, since different games require different approaches. I tend to be pretty social while playing, though, rather than just focused on the game.

Do you visit boardgamegeek.com? Brettspielwelt.com? What is your username?

I visit boardgamegeek.com when I'm thinking about buying a game, but don't have a username. :)

Introduction

I am a PhD student in CS at Berkeley who, uh, loves playing board games! And I just got some new ones for Christmas...!
