Big hello to all old school Board n´Card Players,
I play boardgames again (so I didn´t play much boards & cards for many years ago) in our local gaming group since 2006. In Oktober 2008 i had my first visit at the game fair in Essen and i returned there in the following years. I like science fiction themed games and some medium economic boardgames.
The use of a few (2,3 or 4) dice in games, don´t make the games depending on pure luck, but beware of 1 die! In real life you can´t calculate all possibilities, but you can expect results with your dice, what sum appears with 2D6 or 3D6. And the same expect is valid for a well known talon of 52 cards.
Some Geeks here do not really understand the Geek rating intention. They rate the games bad, cause they have trouble with the publisher, hate the author or do not like the new version of the same relaunched gametitle -- weird users, or?
I play online with and over Yucata, Boite a jeux and Boardgamearena. Join the platforms with many actual games for players all over the world, there are a few games that i really first learned there and from which i didn´t thought before i will like them. So i had nearly every season a surprise game.
Additionally i design some small variants for some of my not so good board-, or should i say shelfstoring-games. Sometimes you can find it here in the BGG file section and sometimes you can read it in the game comments, when it only reaches a few tweaks.
Good, tough games, sweet victories and bitter defeats so far.
P.S. I do not plan to visit the fair in Essen in 2016, but someone could try to convince me to go further with this nice gamers-tradition.
