1976 born Finnish board game enthusiast.
I have a daughter and two sons.

Likes/Dislikes
I like my games well themed, don't get any kicks out of abstracts.
I want to immerse myself into a game. I want to feel like I'm building a greek colony or a railroad empire in the midwest etc.
Deep and strategic game play appeal to me, but too much is a turn-off. A good game is where you can hang in there without too much effort, but to win you must concentrate all the time (well at least more than your opponents).

Hot 10
There's been some confusion about what "Hot 10" should represent. I use "Hot 10" to list unplayed games that I'm most eager to try out.

Games Played
I started logging my games regularly just before Essen '06,
only face-to-face games.

My Avatar is Sensei Katsuichi from the comic Usagi Yojimbo.
Katsuichi means "win" (Katsu) "one" (ichi), or "One who wins".
