Having just joined this motley crew (I have to assume a general mottling based on the sample observed so far), I figured the best way to settle in was to open up a broad new topic as my first post.
Of those on this forum that might already know me, it's most likely through pinball. I play them, repair them (chiefly for Zball), but don't own them. Something I DO own, and enjoy playing, is a fair selection of (as the title suggests) board games, card games and roleplaying games. Before I go off on a long ramble of no interest to anyone on everything that springs to mind on the subject, people with too much time on their hands could check out my game collection and prod me towards a slightly more focused ramble about something of limited interest to at least one other person.
I keep a comprehensive listing of my collection on Board Game Geek and its linked sister site RPG Geek (there's also a Video Game Geek but I have listed very little there and it's not relevant to this topic anyway). Although I usually log in to Boardgame Geek because I look those up the most, I'm providing a link to my collection on RPGGeek because its profile page allows tabbing between the three collections, something that is yet to be implemented on the original site.
Click on the number at the right of screen (currently 215) to view a list of my boardgames. If you click the little rectangular icon next to the number you'll see a thumbnail gallery of game box covers - prettier, but less informative. Just select the RPGs tab to do the same for my RPGs (go figure). Clicking on the title of a game shows all the Boardgame Geek info about the game. I've commented on a number of them, often about where I got it, how much I paid (love a bargain), how I packed the pieces in the box etc. Sometimes I actually mention what the game is like, and there might even be a link to the rules or a video or two.
I welcome any correspondence from interested parties (if such beasts exist) and perhaps there may even be other crew-members who own a game or two (Monopoly, Scrabble and Cluedo don't count, let alone parlour games like Pictionary or Trivial Pursuit).
