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

I enjoy auction games (Medici, Modern Art, Chicago Express), area control games (Lowenherz, Through the Desert, Blokus), area influence games (In the Shadow of the Emperor), negotiation games (Traders of Genoa), and some tile layers (Reef Encounter).

How often do you like to play board games?

I could play one nice sized game an evening.

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?

Remember when I first showed up and I was allowed to win a game or two...whatever became of those? I could teach TtD, In the Shadow of the Emperor, T&E, Confucius, Reef Encounter, Modern Art, Tikal, King of Siam, ToG, Taj Mahal, Container.

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

Less math (there are some great games that remove this additional complication) and more tempo. My learning game is very close to worthless, I need to see that endgame scoring (something I add if I explain the game) and some broad strategies at work.
