nsolitander works as an economic geographer in helsinki, he is married, he cannot sing in tune or remember birthdays, he tirades about his personal crusade to get more appreciation for creative game photos, he will start writing more reviews for children's games once the crusade is over and once he has stacked up on some cachaça.

nsolitander loves art and all things creative about BGG, this has also led him into becoming the proud owner of an original Andy Hull e-painting, depicting his long-time love-hate game, Mexica:

nsolitander has described his relationship to games in a manifesto that he wrote on a friday and was by the sound of it, a bit morose:

Board games are not a wretched drug that keeps me selling my dignity to the first thrift store pimp who scavenges the dark alleys behind your local game store.
They are not a barbiturate that calms my demons after an arduous day of work; blocking the realisation that quality time with family is a largess you receive once you retire.
They are not a sentimental cry for my childhood days, which I foolishly wasted like most vernal persons between the age of seven to twelve.
They are not an imagined instrument of community enabling and cohesion, unlike tattoos, motorbikes, punk rock, and dark rum.
They are not an arena for trouncing, agitating or lambasting your friends, lovers or family.
They are not a way of life, a philosophy or a Europe-USA race to the moon.

They are games. But when they are put in the middle of a table, where a group of friends, acquaintances or strangers have gathered, they can become the perfect vehicle for wits, wagers and time well spent.

Did I mention I love history and like to find nuggets of history in boardgames as well as boardgame nuggets in history books. Here are some examples that I have stumbled upon;
