You stumbled upon the profile of Michael, a 30-something gamer (my exact age seems to advance too quickly to keep up-to-date) from Germany living in Sydney, Australia.
I joined BGG in 2011 when I first heard about the Legend of Drizzt
board game. Part of my excitement stemmed from me being a fan of the novel series by R. A. Salvatore. And another part of me is the one refusing to shake off my childhood memories and desperately hoped for a modern version of my beloved HeroQuest
. My favourite type of game is of cooperative nature and set in a rich fantasy realm - as such, my current Top 3 hasn't changed in some years. Within this time, I have met great likeminded people on BGG and thank you all for making this such a wonderful community!
My avatar has undergone some makeovers in the last three years and featured Drizzt, LEGO Balin, LEGO Aragorn and now my favourite character from Mice & Mystics
- the long-awaited spiritual successor to HeroQuest
and my personal choice as greatest game of all time. A big thank you to the game's designer, Jerry Hawthorne!
I'm a conservation biologist by trade and currently have the pleasure of working as zookeeper with orphaned wombats, cuddly pythons, cute geckos, playful parrots and other Australian critters. Outside of work, you might find me hiking and observing animals in various National Parks or writing lengthy articles on this very website.
Thanks for visiting!
