I have been gaming ever since I can remember as my parents often played games with my sister and me. I am told that I used to be a bad loser which made gaming a nice experience for my parents as my sister was pretty good at cheating. Good that I put this behind me as I usually tend not to win in games - but have great experiences nevertheless. meeple

End of my highshool days and in my early years at the university I was into AD&D of which I still have very fond memories. There followed a costly 2-3 year immersion into Magic of which I was finally cured when a frat brother introduced me to Fief 2. After that I was again hooked with board games and my collection has steadily risen from around 6 games in 1996 to roughly 420 as at January 2016.



Board games have become my number one past time and hobby and I could not imagine my life without them anymore. Playing games with 2-4 good friends is THE most fulfilling past time I know. Furthermore, I have made very good friends through this hobby and have gotten to know so many nice people.

What would be me favourite games? My Top 10 shows my all-time favourites in almost alphabetical order as I could not have ONE best game. I love so many different games: silly games, card games, dice games, family games, strategic and tactical games. I am more a Euro gamer than an Ameritrash one - although I do not object to game richer in theme than mechanics. Especially learned that my tastes in solitair games do favour thematical games over mechanical ones.

I am not really into abstract 2-player games although the GIPF-series of Kris Burm and the recently discovered Go are an exception to this rule. Furthemore, I am not a great fan of racing games - again with Ave Caesar, Snow Tails and Powerboats being good exceptions. Also, wargames are not really my cup of tea but Europe Engulfed, Hammer of the Scots and War of the Ring (first edition) (wargame?) are of my liking.
