Hello visitor,

You are probably here to learn more about me. Here we go.

I started playing games in November 2010 when I purchased Catan. Then I played 120 new games during 2011 and it became obvious what I enjoy: heavy "Euro" strategy games, where the engine building gets rolling towards the end and the decisions are always tough; strategy games where you can plan for the long run, but still must react to what the others do each turn. I love hand management and worker placement, also deck building is somewhat appealing. I'm a big fan of Vital Lacerda, Uwe Rosenberg, Mac Gerdts and I like some of the designs by Martin Wallace, Stefan Feld, Reiner Knizia, Kiesling & Kramer, Ignacy Trzewiczek, Vlaada Chvátil and many more.

I love to play 2 player games with my girlfriend and some abstract games that have interesting mechanics. I was obsessed with GO for a few months, but then slowed down to a crawl when I realized how much work it takes to be good.

I keep my ratings "alive" as I regularly revisit them after additional plays or after playing newer and better games. My rating system differs a bit from what BGG suggests, I use this alternative:

10: Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favorites.
9: Excellent game. Always a pleasure to play. Shines under most circumstances.
8: Very good game. Rarely disappoints me. High on my request/recommend list.
7: Good game. Usually willing to play. I might even request or recommend it.
6: OK game. Some fun or challenge at least. Enjoyable in the right circumstances.
5: Average game. I'm indifferent, but may be willing to play.
4: Below average game. I avoid playing and would need to be persuaded.
3: Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
2: Very poor game. I refuse to play this.
1: Dead game. Seriously negative entertainment value. Black Hole of Fun.

In 2011 I started working on a website where I write about games and the hobby, if you speak Romanian you should check it out:

I'm a member of the Romanian Boardgames Forum where we discuss games, plan meetings and brag about the newest purchases.

I support the local gaming community by organizing mid-week gatherings with my fellow workers and Saturday gatherings at the local game shop.

As of November 2015 I've played 590 different games. I like my collection "small" (under 120) - which means I only keep the games that I'm always willing to play.

Besides playing games:
- I watch a lot of movies, both new and old.
- I'm a big fan of British stand-up comedy.
- I listen to drum'n'bass and death metal (not the combo you'd expect...)
- I spend a ridiculous amount of time on BGG.
- I work as a QA in a software company.

These are my cats: Aria (born April 2015) and Maya (born April 2010).
