Reiner Knizia is my idol. Lost Cities (both), Ingenious, Kingdoms, Samurai: TCG, Euphrates and Tigres: TCG, mmm brains!, Ra, Razzia, LOTR and Medici vs Strozzi. I really enjoy Tahiti, Kingdom of Solomon, Lords of Waterdeep, 7 Wonders, TTR, Dominion, Small World, Family Business, Bang!, and Killer Bunnies. I like pirate theme games like Cartagena and Caribbean.

Intermediate gamer with some game designs brewing in the basement.
Euro style and clever group games. The only party games I like are PervArtistry (Sexy Charades), Last Word and Word on the Street.
Serious gaming opportunities like introductions to all the different gaming mechanics and genres. I meet potential play testers and other inventors. At the meet up, I see some of the most amazing game demonstrators. I aspire to that. But mostly it helps me to feel alive.
My family lives in Milwaukee and now that my niece is old enough to play games, I'm in Miltown lot. I'm grooming her for MilCog membership. She's only 4, I give her 2 years. lol
More games than you can imagine with the friendliest people. If you keep your eyes open, wait patiently, and introduce yourself around you will find the people who play the games you will absolutely love. Otherwise you might start a game you hate 10 min before the game you were waiting for makes it to the table. :-) But it's all good. Thanks to the organizers and leaders at Milcog who love and worship the games they graciously invite us to play.
