I’m always open to trying new and different games and because of this I have a huge number of titles on my “played-it” list. My personal favorite type of game is what’s known as “Euro-style board games”. This type of board game is characterized by indirect player interactions and thoughtful planning, as opposed to board games based mostly on luck, direct player conflict and drama.

Puzzle and mystery games come in close second, and of course, there’s nothing better than party games for large social gatherings!
I don’t just love to play games – I also really enjoy creating and designing games. I have created a number of different games which until now I’ve only shared with family and friends, including a deck-building game, a two-player strategy game, and a resource management Eurogame.
There’s something thrilling and challenging in creating a working game that brings other people as much entertainment as I myself get when I sit down to play a fantastic new game with friends.
Part of the space-themed Ticket to Ride game board I created for a contest. My entry consisted of not only new graphics, but I also completed an analysis of path lengths, number of hubs and path connections as well as the implementation of a new game mechanic. I created a fully playable and balanced variant of the popular board game.
