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

Eurogames, Ameritrash games, meaty games, too many to list. Teaching games is a skill to be mastered. When it's done well, you'll hardly notice that you've just encountered a master.

How often do you like to play board games?

No answer yet

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?

I like a game group that attends regularly. I like a game group with a good mix of players and game teachers. I can teach games; too many to list really. I'm always trying to expand my repertoire.

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

My first time is always a "learning game". I try to make a game move along at its expected pace; some should play slow, others quick. I try to foster the enjoyment of others when I'm teaching a game, which often contributes to a loss for me. :-P

Do you visit What is your username?, bsw:blindspot


In a word: "Gemütlichkeit". That's what I get out of playing board games. For me, playing (learning and teaching too) board games is a great way to meet people and quickly enjoy an engaging experience with them.
