C# developer by trade - Gamer by passion...

On the PC I play Action RPG's (just give me D3 already!), Strategy and Hack & Slash games (just give me D3 already!)

Away from the computer I love to play board and card games with friends and family.

I've also dabbled in quite a few CCG's. My personal favorite was EVE: The Second Genesis - which I've followed from it's early beginnings to it's bitter end...

@Tom Au: I wouldn't call that "obstructive" since your goal is not to take a building away from an opponent. Your goal is to end the game by filling your city space - which is indeed what builders usually do.

comment What Makes Buildings Valuable In Puerto Rico?
I've only played 1 real game with other people and about 5 or so online against an AI. Online I always ended up doing a build strategy and winning. Interestingly many of the AI's also chose the building route. I think the "building strategy" can be very surprising to a new player who thinks the game is only about shipping. That can make it very powerful.

comment Use of Executive Order in Battlestar Galatica
In most games I've played that have similar level of game text effects that deny something usually beat effects that allow the same thing. Also like others said. XO'ing someone out of the brig feels unrealistic and cheap.
