Obviously I like games, otherwise I wouldn’t have a profile here now would I

The better question is why do I like games?

Well I have to say I am a product of my environment and since I am a child of the 70s/80s and grew up perhaps at the peak of toy culture in this country, there was simply no other options for me than to become a huge fan of games. Naturally I was forced to play monopoly, trouble, connect 4 and all the other standard board games as a kid, but fortunately I was able to break free from those and move on to every other area of gaming. I like a little bit of everything from board and card games, wargames, video games, RPGs, miniatures games and everything in between. Give me Gameliberty or give me death I say!

Some of my favorites

Board Games from the 80s and 90s:
Hero Quest and Battle masters, not the best but a great value and perfect to create your own quests, new rules and new games
