Hello everyone, i'm just a gamer in my 20s, living in Toronto, Canada. I study computer science at the graduate level.

I like to play a wide variety of games, except most wargames. I tend to prefer games with strong strategic and tactical decisions and not so luck-based. I do however like games with limited randomness which can be controlled in some ways (Kingsburg-style). I also like good fantasy games, as long as it is not a total luckfest. Descent is my favorite game in that genre.

I've recently grown jaded of deckbuilding games, so new ones do not excite me much. Likewise for coop games: I am only looking for non-straightward coop games which cannot be reduced to solitaire play. This includes games with a traitor (BSG), real-time (Space Alert) or hidden information (Hanabi).

Recently I've been enamored with hidden information games with strong mind reading. These games involve extracting information from the play of your opponent. The poster child for this type of games is Yomi, where most of the information is derived from watching your opponent's behavior. Other games include Netrunner and Tichu.

I rate games after 1 play and subsequently revise the score with each additional play. I rate using the BGG criteria. Wishlist -5 is attributed to games which I have no information about. I may raise the game's value or remove it from the wishlist completely after I've done some research.

I always take the green player. No exception.

I am one of the members of The Fall Guys, a channel dedicated to Netrunner.

I'm a fan of classical music, my favourite composers are Rachmaninov, Barber, Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Lutosławski. I'm a fan of metal music, especially brutal death metal and progressive metal. My favourite metal bands are Bloodbath, Necrophagist, Dark Tranquillity, Dream Theater and Symphony X. I am also a fan of chinese, japanese and korean pop, rock and rap music. I am also a fan of Jazz, especially fusion.

I've been playing piano for at least 12 years now.
