You want to know something? I don't think Mozart's going to help at all.

Started playing designer games in late 2002. I found this site early into my new hobby. Now, I play almost exclusively Euros, and I'm often a slave to the Cult of the New.

I've run a weekly game group for more than eight years now. We stay on the lighter-to-middle-weight side. 3 hours for a game is pretty much the max. I do no online games, and I'm starting to play some iOS games.

My favorite designers are Knizia (by far), Schacht, Feld, Wallace, and Kramer.

I was Geek of the Week #366.


Due to the size of my collection, I cannot remember several hundred games worth of rules. I started creating a series of quick reference sheets that contain pretty much every rule, so that if someone asks for the game, I can quickly look over the sheet, rather than peruse 16 pages of ambiguous text. (This format was cribbed from Michael Weston and Liumas.) Some info on my player aid philosophy.
