to record games against. Why more than one? In two cases it is more
important to me to remember the group I played a game with than the fact
I played a particular game. Thus, those games are recorded under the
alternate IDs, and all the rest are recorded under my main account.

Surprise gaming comments of the year (all of these are from gamers):
New England is just too abstract to be worth playing.
Ra is too complex and the scoring is too fiddly. Options like the
Civilisation and Pharaoh bonuses should be dropped as they come up too
rarely to bother with.
The person who calls Ra should bid first, otherwise calling Ra is too
Union Pacific doesn't have enough luck factors.
Torres (the perfect information form) will exhaust its replayability
in a few plays as all the moves degrade to rote recipes.
Games which change their character on the number of players playing
are flawed designs. A game should deliver the same experience no
matter how many players are playing withing the designed range.
 Well, computer gamers, and specifically designers and producers of
multiplayer online games.
